Former Governor Peter Odili has made a surprising move in Rivers State politics by endorsing Governor Siminalayi Fubara as the state’s political leader.

Odili praised Fubara for standing up for the people’s interests.

Odili, who was governor from 1999 to 2007, declared that Fubara, who won his election both at the ballot box and in court, is now the political leader of the oil-rich South-South state.

Odili made these remarks on Thursday during the opening of a Primary Healthcare Centre donated by his PAMO Foundation in Ndoni, his hometown in the Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Area.

He stressed the importance of Rivers State strategically, stating that if the state faces challenges, the entire nation will be affected. He advised Governor Fubara to keep this in mind when making decisions.

When evaluating Fubara’s performance, Odili praised him for making significant progress in key areas during his first year in office, especially in improving the well-being of the people.

He observed that Fubara’s leadership is in line with President Bola Tinubu‘s goals, particularly in the health sector, as shown by the recent launch of the Primary Healthcare Fellows scheme by the Federal Government.

Odili urged the governor to continue aligning with the President and his policies to attract federal government support and attention to the state.
