Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara has said he will not fold his arms and watch anyone or group of people sabotage his government.

He said the state government would deal decisively with anybody who wants to disrupt the ongoing 20,000 housing units project in the state.

He said the project was aimed at providing decent accommodation for the low-income earners.

Fubara handed down the warning when he inspected the extent of work done at the 20,000 housing units project site located along the Obiri-Ikwerre-Airport Road opposite OPM Headquarters in the Ohio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state.

A statement by the governor’s media aide, Boniface Onyedi, quoted him as saying: “I am also aware that some of the community people are coming up with issues. But let it be clear, we didn’t jump into this land, we did all the due diligence that we needed to do.

“We took our time to check the land. It is a property that belongs to the Rivers State government under the Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority.

“We are not taking anybody’s land. However, if you feel that there is an encroachment, you should know the right authority to visit.

“Nobody should come here and disturb the contractor. That is the truth because I am going to take it personally as sabotage to my government.

“I know a lot of people are trying to do one thing or the other to sabotage us. I am not going to take it lightly.

“In as much as I believe that peace is the major ingredient that we need for every development, it doesn’t mean I will be quiet when I see anybody that will come here to disrupt this project.”

Rivers State has been embroiled in a political crisis since October when some lawmakers loyal to former governor Nyesom Wike plotted Fubara’s impeachment.

There has been an uneasy calm since the intervention of President Bola Tinubu last December.
