Governor Siminalayi Fubara has revealed his possible next move in resolving the lingering crisis in Rivers State, The Herald reports.

Speaking during an interview with AIT and monitored by The Herald, Fubara said he is ready to give up his office for peace in Rivers State.

The Herald recalls that the political crisis between Governor Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, currently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) persists despite intervention by President Bola Tinubu.

Speaking during the interview, 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.”

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

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

Fubara 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.
