This statement came in response to accusations of ingratitude amidst the ongoing conflict between him and former governor, now FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike.

Fubara addressed these concerns at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Monday while hosting stakeholders of the Ikwerre Ethnic Nationality. The group included leaders from Ogbakor Ikwerre Cultural Organisation Worldwide, the Supreme Council of Ikwerre Traditional Rulers, and others.

The Ikwerre Ethnic Group, encompassing the local government areas of Port Harcourt, Obio/Akpor, Emohua, and Ikwerre, is Wike’s ethnic constituency.

Governor Fubara assured the stakeholders that despite the political turmoil in the state, he would maintain respect for all individuals and not act recklessly.

This assurance came during the swearing-in of Barrister Emmanuel Frank-Fubara, who had been screened and confirmed as a commissioner by the Victor Oko-Jumbo-led assembly earlier that day. The ceremony took place at the Executive Council Chambers of the Government House in Port Harcourt around 5 p.m.

During his address following the oath-taking ceremony, Governor Fubara defended his recognition of the Oko-Jumbo-led assembly, asserting that it is the lawfully recognized legislative arm.

He also expressed disappointment with the police for their lack of progress in investigating a recent bomb explosion in Port Harcourt. Fubara suggested that the relevant authorities’ silence might be because the suspects were not his supporters.

I’ve not been hearing anything and I’m wondering, after how many weeks now, the Nigeria police are still not able to come out and make a statement about the attempt by someone – who I don’t know what his name is – who tried to detonate dynamite in front of Hotel Presidential.

I’m still wondering why it doesn’t happen. But if it’s maybe any other thing that has to do with us, they will say they should even charge the person for terrorism,” Fubara said.
