Making this assertion while speaking to journalists over the weekend, the Head of the Cockeye Brown Group of Houses of ancient Opobo Kingdom, Alabo Edwin Cockeye Brown said governor Fubara has distinguished himself through his commitment to peace-building and his ability to rise above partisan bickering.

“The Ijaws are known for their peaceful temperament, and Governor Fubara has embodied that tradition since he was sworn in as the executive governor of river’s state “, he said, adding, “Even in the face of tremendous provocation from his detractors, he has steadfastly refused to retaliate, instead focusing on the work of moving Rivers State forward.”

Alabo Cockeye-Brown who is a prominent member of the Opobo Elder Statesmen-4-Sim noted that the governor’s measured approach has stood in stark contrast to the antagonistic politics seen in other parts of the country.
