This Nigeria news platform understands that the Rivers State Governor spoke on Thursday, November 30, at the funeral service of the late King Theophilus J.T. Princewill, Amachree XI, where he urged all residents to work together in harmony and contribute to the state’s development efforts.


According to him, it is only through mutual cooperation that the state can achieve its designated developmental activities and ultimately benefit all its citizens.


“We are in a difficult period, but just be peaceful. We cannot achieve progress in an environment of violence. We cannot grow our State to the level of our aspirations when there is trouble.

“We can only advance to our dream State in a peaceful environment. I urge every one of you to be peaceful. Peace is the only instrument that can bring development,” Fubara said.

The level of cooperation between the bereaved family and the entire Kalabari people during the preparations leading up to the burial of their late king was praised by the governor.

This was a disappointment to those who had predicted a crisis, Fubara noted.

The governor urged the Kalabari people to continue living in peace even after the burial of their king. He assured them that his administration is committed to meeting their expectations.
