Siminalayi Fubara

A home grown candidate with verifiable academic and professional credentials providing home grown solutions shaped by global perspectives for Rivers people with specific deliverables. Not flowery language, not esoteric speeches, not jetting in and out of town, but reaching the people community by community one person at a time.

Siminalayi Fubara knows Rivers State, inch by inch, square metre by square metre. He knows it's people, because he is one of them. He understands the principles of hard work, fair play and success, because he has worked hard and risen through the ranks. He is not a clanging cymbal; not your regular politician. He is no business man with interest in your state assets.

Definitely not a "professional" candidate. He is a bureaucrat who understands the principles of building strong institutions and delivering development community by community. And he is talking with Rivers people, going to them, feeling their pulse and sharing his thoughts, proposing solutions specific to each community.

One thing is certain, Siminalayi Fubara would not gamble with Rivers assets.
