Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has thanked God for the grace given to him to pull through the troubling political crisis, steadied governance, and celebrate first year in office.
The governor thanked all Rivers people for their trust, support, and various levels of contributions that strengthened the capacity of government to achievethe successes that have been recorded.
This was as he said there were plans to frustrate his government.
Fubara expressed gratitude at the special thanksgiving service to mark his first year in office at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Garrison Junction in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Nelson Chukwudi.
He said, “I still don’t believe that this administration is truly marking one year in office.”
Specifically, Fubara recalled that a few months ago, nobody had believed that it was going to be possible for them to come to church in gratitude
He said, “You won’t understand. I can tell you in good authority that even before we started this programme, there was every plan to frustrate us. But to the glory of God, we are all gathered here to say ‘God, thank you, that you have carried us and led us to this point’.
“Now, if we have God by our side, do we have any problem? I want to thank every one of you that are here to support us.
“I want to thank you especially, on behalf of my family and the government, you have given us honour, and you have made us proud. Without you, there wouldn’t have been any record of success. So, I want to thank you.”
Delivering the sermon at the service, Bishop of Diocese of Niger Delta North, Rt. Rev, Wisdom Ihunwo, preached on the importance of people having grateful hearts when coming to God for thanksgiving.
Ihunwo said more than just being alive, God gives desired victories over the most troubling life challenges people face, and advised that they should always attribute their success to Him because without Him, nothing can be achieved.
The cleric assured that God will continue to crush those who are troubling Rivers people and strengthen the Federal Government to improve the national economy and reduce hunger in the country.
