Cultivate Culture of Team Work, Fubara Charges Newly Sworn-in Commissioners


Nelson Chidiebere, Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara has charged newly sworn-in commissioners to cultivate the culture of teamwork by mobilising staff in their ministries of posting to ensure higher productivity and promotion of the interest of the State.

The governor gave the charge when he swore in five new commissioners at the Executive Chamber of Government House in Port Harcourt on Friday.

The commissioners who were screened and confirmed at the Chambers of the Rivers House of Assembly complex on Thursday are Dr. Gift Worlu, Engr. Austin Ben Chioma, Prince Isaac Umejuru, Mr Joseph Johnson and Mr Victor Kii, were eventually inaugurated into the state executive council.

Fubara, in a statement signed by his media aide, Boniface Onyedi, said to deliver his electioneering promises, he needs competent people on board to create a greater Rivers and they have been chosen to contribute their best to achieve that goal.

According to him “we have in our midst today very capable people who are going to add value to our system. Some of you might have been nominated by your local government after deliberations but here, you are not representing your local governments, you are working for the State.

“The task is to deliver for the State. Your loyalty is to the State because if you don’t do that when you leave, whether you like it or not, the records will be there to show what you did while you served as a commissioner. So, I charge you to leave your local issues and focus on promoting the interest of our State. That is the only way the theme that we all agreed on, consolidation and continuity, can be felt in our State.”

Fubara, however, advised them against administering their assigned ministries as sole administrators but to work as team leaders galvanising the permanent secretaries, directors and other levels of staff to achieve given tasks.
