JUST IN: I am ready to resign for peace to reign in Rivers state, says Gov Fubara

Governor Sim Fubara has expressed his willingness to give up his office for peace in Rivers State.

The political crisis between Governor Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, currently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has been ongoing.

Despite an intervention by President Bola Tinubu, the crisis has persisted.

Speaking to AIT, Governor Fubara stated, “No sacrifice will be too big for me to pay for the success of this administration.

The reason is very simple: it is not political love. It is not because I want to gain any favour from anybody. My interest and love for our dear state are genuine.”

He emphasized that his concern lies with the millions of Rivers people who have made sacrifices, and he worries that their hopes are being dashed.

Governor Fubara clarified that if resigning from his position would bring more peace to the state, he is willing to do so.

He underscored that his decision is not about personal interests but about the well-being and stability of Rivers State.

Governor Fubara also acknowledged the importance of maturity in leadership, highlighting his restraint in the face of crisis despite having the power to take specific actions that could have escalated tensions.

“I am the governor. No matter what it is, there are things I could have done, and there would have been a total crisis, but the ability to restrain in the face of crisis when you have the power to do things is maturity,” he added.
