opposed to it.”

mixed reactions from people across the country, is not a death sentence but a
way towards lasting peace and stability in the state.

peace proclamation and my commitment to implementing both the spirit and
letters of the declaration in such a way and manner that will restore political
stability to our dear state without compromising the collective interest of our
people and our cherished and shared democratic values.

“Already, both parties have demonstrated some good faith in
the implementation process with the withdrawal of the purported impeachment

exemplary values of Jesus Christ, emphasising the importance of selflessness,
genuine love, and true forgiveness as outlined in his teachings.

transformation of our State with the completion of most of our projects and
programmes, such as sections of the Port Harcourt Ring Road, the Andoni section
of the Unity Road, the Ahoada-Omoku Road, the Emohua-Degema Road, etc, and the
commencement of many other laudable projects, both in infrastructure and human
capital development, as outlined in our 2024 budget,” Fubara declared.
