Fubara: “I Won't Present The Budget, The Seats Of Pro-Wike Lawmakers Remain Vacant

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State said he is willing to give up his office for a lasting peace to reign in the state.

Fubara stated this in an interview with AIT on Thursday.

He 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.”

The Rivers governor further stated, “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.”
