Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has said he’s still standing due to President Bola Tinubu’s fatherly support.
Fubara spoke on Sunday during a special thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Opobo Town, in Opobo/Nkoro Local Government Area.
He also disclosed that his family was suffering due to his position as the governor of Rivers State.
Declaring that it has not been easy, Fubara said God “does not make any mistake,” adding that things happen for a purpose.
According to Fubara: “It has not been easy, I can say it. A lot of people who started this journey with us ought to have been here with us, unfortunately, they are not here. God knows why. We can’t question the Almighty.
“I’m happy to return this glory to God Almighty, to say thank you God, and give me extra energy to continue with the battle. But no battle can be bigger than God.
“I want to thank God first, our dear President, he’s been a great and wonderful father. He has supported and I can say it without being economical with the truth that we are standing here because of his support.
“I want to thank again, my family. They are suffering, that’s the truth because of this cause. You just have to be strong and understand that after a while, you’ll get me back. But for now, these people are the ones that own me.”
