"Whenever Rivers State sneezes, the entire nation catches cold. Act with this awareness in all your decisions." Odili tells Fubara.

Sir Peter Odili, a former Governor of oil rich Rivers State, has endorsed the incumbent Governor of the state, His Excellency, Siminalayi Fubara as the political leader of the state.

Odili, who served as Governor for two terms of eight years (8) years between 1999 and 2007, showered praise on Simi Fubara for his defense of the interests of the people of the state pointing out that, Simi Fubara, having secured his electoral victory both through the ballot and the courts, is now the political leader of the oil-rich South-South state.

Odili, a former presidential aspirant on the platform of the People's Democratic Party PDP, stated this during the commissioning of a Primary Healthcare Centre donated by his PAMO Foundation in Ndoni, his hometown in the Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Area on Thursday. 

He emphasised the strategic importance of Rivers State, warning that whenever Rivers State sneezes, the entire nation catches cold. He urged Governor Fubara to act with this awareness in all his decisions.

He commended Fubara’s performance as a leader and for making significant strides in critical sectors within his first year in office, particularly focusing on the well-being of the people.

He noted that Fubara’s administration is in alignment with President Bola Tinubu’s agenda, especially in the health sector, following the recent launch of the Primary Healthcare Fellows scheme by the Federal Government.

Odili encouraged the governor to maintain this alignment with the President and his policies to attract federal government attention and support to the state.
