Published by admin on

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State expressed his willingness to step down from his position as governor in the interest of peace within the state amidst a political rift with his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.

This statement came during an exclusive interview with AIT as the ongoing crisis between Governor Fubara and Minister Nyesom Wike persists. Despite previous intervention by President Bola Tinubu, where an agreement was signed by both parties to resolve the crisis, the situation has not improved

Fubara’s plea for peace and potential resignation reflects a desire to mitigate tensions and foster stability in Rivers State. The political discord between Governor Fubara and Minister Wike has been a significant issue, prompting concerns about its impact on the community and governance in the state.

Speaking during the interview, Fubara said, “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 is genuine.

“I’m not trying to say I want to be one man that will be there to decide the fate of all, no. But let Rivers State remain.

“My burden wasn’t the issue of all the drama. It is the millions of Rivers people who had made sacrifices, who are seeing opportunity and it looks as if their hopes are being dashed. They were the ones I was worried about. What would be their fate? That was my trouble. It is not about me.”

He continued, “If leaving this position is what I need or what is needed to bring more peace in this state, I can even tell the people to come and take it. It is not about me. People should understand that definitely I’m here, I will go but Rivers State will still remain.

“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.”
