The Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has said that the worst political crisis that recently rocked the oil-rich state, was over.

He said the state government is now working tirelessly to deliver quality services and signature infrastructure projects in line with his administration’s ‘people first’ mantra.

Governor Fubara made the declaration at the thanksgiving reception organised by the Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, King Ateke Tom, to celebrate his 60th birthday, which was held at his residence in Okochiri Town, Okrika Local Government Area on Sunday.

King Ateke Tom also organised the event to thank God for the elevation of his traditional stool from second-class to first-class status, and the conferment of honour by the Okrika people on him as the Ama Poku (spokesman) of Kirike Se.

“I identify with you, King Ateke Tom, and I want to appreciate you for standing with us. Like I had said, the worst is over concerning the political crisis. What we are doing today is moving forward and advancing our State. And I am happy that you are one of my allies,” he said.

“I assure you the only thing that will be associated with our administration is success, success and more success.”

Fubara noted with delight, that King Ateke Tom is not merely celebrating with drinks and foods distributed to friends but has included God in the event with an expression of gratitude to Him for the blessings bestowed on him.

The governor stated how in contemporary times, life expectancy continues to reduce because of lifestyle changes and other exposures like the effect of modern technology, which makes attaining 60 a lofty feat.

“We as a government, it is our duty to make sure that we support our own, more especially when you are contributing to peace and development of our state,” he said.

“When one marks 40, we say thank God. Somebody has marked 50, and by the special grace of God, King Ateke Tom is celebrating 60. So, I want to thank God for his life because it is only possible through God.”

The governor said looking at the life and time of King Ateke Tom, one will understand that death had moved around him, and it, therefore, is a miracle for him to have lived this long.

He stressed that it must have been possible for him to have come this far by God’s providence, adding that it is only for that reason that it is worth celebrating.

“So, I am happy to tell you that we will continue to stand by you. Let me thank everyone who is here who has come to celebrate with our brother.

“Thank you for coming to support him. I know that as a man, nobody is perfect, but in his own little way, he tries as much as he can, to make peace his major gift to the people of Okrika. I know and I don’t need to be told how much he spends to make sure he makes people happy,” the governor said.
