P/Harcourt — Against a wide range opinion across Nigeria the Rivers State Governor Siminilayi Fubara has left his teeming supporters in rude shock as he declared that there is no price too big for him to pay to foster peace in the state.
Recall that Fubara stirred the anger of Nigerians when a document emerged from the Aso Rock Villa that he signed a highly lopsided peace accord brokered between him and the FCT minister, Nyesom Wike by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Monday.
Fubara said he is committed to ensuring peace in the State and among its people to foster development.
Speaking at the 3rd Convocation and 6th Founders Day ceremonies of the PAMO University of Medical Sciences in Iriebe Town, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area, of the state, he said “There is no price that will be too big to pay to ensure that peace prevails”.
The governor assured that he is prepared and will continue to pay the necessary price that will quarantee peace.
Governor Fubara also assured that the provision of quality education system and affordable public healthcare services will remain two vital priorities of his administration that are driven to achieve universal access for all Rivers people.
“While some progress has been made, it is obvious that a lot still needs to be done to achieve our collective aspirations for universal access to quality education and healthcare for our people. I need not say that no society can progress without educated and healthy people.”
Fubara noted the giant strides achieved within six years of PAMO University founded by Dr. Peter Odili, to become Nigeria’s most outstanding private medical institution.
The governor announced that his administration has increased the number of students from 100 to 150, who can now benefit from State’s yearly scholarship in the institution.
