Amidst simmering political tensions in Rivers State, Governor Siminalayi Fubara projected a confident image, assuring Ijaw youths of his political victory.

During a Boro Day celebration visit by the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), Fubara downplayed the challenges, suggesting his opponents were already outmaneuvered.

“Those expecting sleepless nights for me are the ones wide awake,” Fubara quipped, hinting at a firm grip on the situation.

The Governor paid homage to Isaac Boro, the revered Ijaw rights activist, drawing parallels between Boro’s struggle and his own navigation of the political storm.

He lauded Boro’s unwavering pursuit of “equity, justice, and fair play” for the Ijaw people, positioning himself as a modern-day champion of those ideals.

Fubara urged Ijaw youths to embrace their heritage and celebrate Boro Day peacefully. In a gesture of goodwill, he pledged to provide a suitable complex for the Rivers State chapter of the IYC, fulfilling a key request from the youth leaders.

The IYC delegation, led by President General Jonathan Lokpobiri and Eastern Zone Chairman Tamuno Kpokpo, displayed unwavering support for Fubara.

They vowed to stand against any who “trouble” the Governor, solidifying the IYC’s position as a potential political ally.

While Fubara’s comments suggest a sense of control, underlying tensions in Rivers State politics remain.

Whether his confidence translates to lasting stability or merely serves as a rallying cry for his supporters is a question yet to be answered.
