“My visit to the assembly complex on Monday, October 30, 2023, was to assess the level of damage and undertake remedial measures to protect lives and property within the assembly complex. I charged the security agencies to thoroughly investigate the incident and report it to me.

“Shortly after, I got reports that the state House of Assembly had broken into two factions: one claiming to have impeached and suspended the House Leader and three others preparatory to initiating an impeachment action against me, and the other rival faction impeaching the Speaker and Deputy Speaker, thus sparking off some form of political crisis.”

Fubara Thanks Tinubu

“I wish to thank the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, for his fatherly intervention which opened a series of communication channels to facilitate the timely resolution of the festering crises. I wish to also thank our elders who are currently intervening in the matter.

“Let me clearly state that I act to restore peace and stability in our state. I am a man of peace and as governor, the advancement of our state is my primary concern.”
Fubara added that no sacrifice was too much for him to make, and it is the collective responsibility of his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, and himself to use their positions to advance the progress, security, and well-being of the people.
