Power belongs to God, and no human can claim to himself the capacity to give power ~ Abia State Governor Otti

Contrary to claims by the former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, that he made Simi Fubara governor of the state, the Abia State Governor, Alex Otti has declared that power only comes from the supreme being, God.

Gov Otti made the declaration on Tuesday while inaugurating a project executed by Governor Fubara in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The Abia governor expressed confidence that despite the political crisis rocking Rivers State, the people of the state are assured of getting the dividend of democracy, stressing that Fubara came prepared.

He said, “Power belongs to God, no human can claim to himself the capacity to give power, except you have the capacity to give life. Of course, you can take life, but you cannot give it.

“For me, it’s all about good governance. Governor Fubara came prepared, and I don’t believe that any distraction is enough to take his focus away from improving the welfare and interest of the people.

“So, I can assure you, Rivers people, that the dividends of democracy that you are seeing now is still a dress rehearsal. It is early in the morning, and I am sure that in the near future, you will be seeing more.”
