Fubara Slams Police Silence on Rivers State Bomb Attempt

Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara expressed amazement at the Nigeria Police Force’s lengthy silence following the attempted detonation of an explosive device in Port Harcourt by demonstrators demanding the extension of the tenures of past chairmen of local government councils.

Governor Fubara remarked that if his followers had carried out such an activity, they would have been charged with terrorism immediately.

The governor raised his worries after Emmanuel Onengiye-Ofori Frank-Fubara was sworn in as the new Commissioner for Finance in the Executive Chambers of Government House in Port Harcourt on Monday.

Governor Fubara emphasized that Rivers State now has only one significant foe who is strongly opposed to his administration, as well as others who he describes as their accomplices, all of whom are working to destabilize the state.

However, he said that their efforts are constantly prevented by divine intervention.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Nelson Chukwudi, Governor Fubara said: “You know, if (Governor) Fubara was involved in anything, or had links to Fubara’s associates, Nigeria would have been hot by now.”

“There would have been arrests, statements, and counter-claims. There would’ve been press conferences.

“But, because it is from the opposite side, nothing has been heard yet. But, praise God, they couldn’t keep it hidden long, even if I hadn’t heard anything.

“And I’m wondering, after how many weeks, the Nigerian Police has yet to issue a statement regarding the man’s attempt to ignite dynamite in front of the Presidential Hotel in Port Harcourt.

“I’m still puzzled why it hasn’t happened. However, if it had been another matter involving us, they might have charged the individual with terrorism.

“But, you see, this God that I follow, we serve really. This God is dedicated to Rivers State by our forefathers, because when they make remarks, they say, “Rivers State belongs to God, and that is the God who is saving and lifting us.”

Governor Fubara expressed satisfaction with his administration’s relationship with the Rivers State House of Assembly, chaired by Victor Oko-Jumbo, which he described as legally recognized for carrying out legislative duties and successfully supporting the executive without disturbing governance.
