“Fubara Pays Tribute to Wigwe, Saying, ‘Those Cherished by God Don’t Stay Long'”



"Fubara Pays Tribute to Wigwe, Saying, 'Those Cherished by God Don't Stay Long'"

Rivers governor, Siminalayi Fubara said the late Herbert Wigwe lived an impactful life, affecting society positively and his administration is determined to immortalise him as a worthy son of the State.

Fubara made the promise at the Night of Tributes in Port Harcourt on Tuesday evening, an event that was organised by the Port Harcourt City One Love Family, to reflect, celebrate and eulogise the life of late Herbert Wigwe.

Governor Fubara described the death of Herbert Wigwe as a double loss to him.

This, Fubara said, was because the deceased was an in-law, and a trail blazing son of the state who exhibited daring spirit known of Rivers people in pursuit of their dreams and became successful in his career with reckonable social impact.

“I have come to understand something about life, those that God has favoured, blessed and truly cherish, He does not like them to stay too long on earth because he doesn’t want them to get corrupted.

“But the wicked ones, the cruel, that you are praying to die, will stay and they will not die. So, you should understand that what has happened to our brother and his family, is truly painful to everyone.
