Sir Siminialayi Fubara’s victory, Prince Chibudom Nwuche leads members of NEWERA Nigeria in a thanksgiving service at his home towm
Former Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives and grand patron of NEWERA Nigeria, Rt Hon Prince Chibudom Nwuche, on Easter Sunday, led members of NEWERA Nigeria, a non – governmental and socio-cultural group to a thanksgiving service for the victory of Sir Siminialaye Fubara in the March 18th, 2023 governorship election in Rivers State, at the St Barnabas Anglican Church Ochigba Parish in the Diocese of Ahoada.
Addressing the congregation, Nwuche urged political leaders to offer quality and effective leadership to the people in order the earn their trust which will in turn translate to electoral victory, and to put the welfare of the masses before their personal comfort. He stressed that anti people’s leadership styles, makes voters demonstrate their rejection of such political leaders through their votes as was the case with some of the parties that contested the just concluded gubernatorial elections.
According to him, the elections were free and fair, and that where people expected violence like in Ahoada East, there was none. He therefore wondered why some politicians were making so much noise and trying to drag INEC into a needless controversy when they know they lost woefully in the gubernatorial elections in Rivers state, as they had nothing to showcase to win the peoples vote, having wasted the opportunity their leaders had to positively impact on the state and her citizens during their several outings in leadership positions.
Hon. Nwuche maintained that PDP won by landslide in Rivers state, and will still do so if the elections were repeated 100 times. He thanked the people of Ochigba,, his home town, who voted over 90% for the PDP in the gubernatorial elections on account of their trust in him and other’s leadership and openess to them.
According to Nwuche, some of the leaders of the opposition did not only undermined Rivers people but went as far as terminating projects of Rivers sons, gotten with the support of good Nigerians from other regions of the country. He wondered who will vote for such vindictive and selfish leaders, who sees power as a means to aggrandise themselves and oppress the generality of Nigerians, and can not point to any development they attracted to Rivers state during their various outings in Government.
He used the opportunity to call on Christians to exhibit good virtues at all times to demonstrate the exemplary life of Jesus Christ whose resurrection, Christians all over the world commemorate by showing love and care to Christians and non Christians alike in order to achieve peaceful coexistence and societal development, urging the people especially those in leadership positions to be humble as all life is temporary, and material things mean nothing to those that understand the essence of our journey on this plain.
