In a show of solidarity, a group of forty lawmakers from diverse political parties, known as the “G60”, gathered in Port Harcourt, Rivers State’s capital, to commemorate the first anniversary of Governor Siminalayi Fubara’s tenure and endorse his leadership.

The G60, which includes representatives from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Labour Party (LP), and All Progressives Congress (APC), arrived in the city coinciding with the culmination of Governor Fubara’s 20-day celebration marking his first year in office.

Notable figures among the delegation included Hon. Ikenga Ugochinyere (PDP, Imo State and G60 spokesperson), Hon. Sagir Koki (NNPP, Kano State, G60 co-chairman), Hon. Afam Ogene (LP, Anambra), Hon. Philip Agbese (APC, Benue State, Reps Deputy spokesman), and Hon. Maureen Gwacham (APGA, Anambra).

The anniversary celebrations, which began last month with the inauguration of a 10.9-kilometre section of the old Port Harcourt–Bori road, concluded on June 2 with a thanksgiving service at Saint Paul’s Anglican Cathedral Garrison, Port Harcourt.

Speaking at the service, G60 spokesperson Hon. Ugochinyere lauded Governor Fubara’s significant accomplishments in his first year, highlighting his efforts in good governance, peacekeeping, unity, and the implementation of substantial infrastructure projects for Rivers State’s economic prosperity.

Ugochinyere pointed out several of Fubara’s notable achievements, including the construction of various roads and the inauguration of phase 1 of Port Harcourt Electrical Village, with the commencement of phase 2.

The lawmakers commended Fubara for his commitment to delivering the benefits of democracy to the people of Rivers State, despite various challenges. They expressed admiration for Fubara’s impressive progress and his focus on infrastructural development for the state’s economic prosperity.

This endorsement from the federal lawmakers comes amid a dispute between Fubara and some Rivers State Assembly lawmakers loyal to his predecessor and current Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike. The disagreement, which began five months after Fubara took office, is rooted in Fubara’s alleged interference with the political structure established by Wike, which was instrumental in Fubara’s electoral success.
