I owe promotion in my political career to God alone – Fubara


The Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has said he owes his achievements and promotion in his political career to God alone.

Speaking on Sunday at the 2024 Port Harcourt Holy Ghost Rally organised by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Fubara said he was first promoted by God, who later stirred the hearts of the leaders and members of his political party, the Peoples Democratic Party, to agree on presenting him as their governorship candidate.

“I was promoted by God first, through my party and the leaders. So, promotion comes from God and God alone,” he said, adding that the theme of the programme: “Promotion for a purpose,” resonated with him.

“Let me take the theme of the rally to be a personal gift from RCCG because the theme is not different from my story,” said Fubara, who recently survived impeachment by lawmakers loyal to his predecessor and political godfather, Nyesom Wike.

He expressed special gratitude to the General Overseer of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, for his love for Rivers State as demonstrated in the choice of Port Harcourt for the special Holy Ghost Rally and blessings at the beginning of every year.

Fubara said “I want to say a big thank you to this family for your support, before, during and after our elections.

“You have shown so much support to us. Your prayers have kept us going. I want to thank you, especially for that and to say that our government will continue to support this programme in this state.

“It is important to mention that prayers cannot be enough. So, continue to pray for us so that the purpose of governance will be achieved in this state.”

In his welcome address, the Intercontinental Youth Pastor of RCCG, Pastor Belemina Obunge, acknowledged the immense support RCCG had received from the state government towards the hosting of the rally, which he noted coincided with the birthday of the governor.
