Expressing a desire for the Emirate to be remembered as a “symbol of dignity and peace,” filmmaker Zainab Bayero emphasized the importance of preserving a peaceful image.

Governor Fubara highlighted the calculated nature of the incident, particularly noting the presence of the Senate Committee on Privatisation and Commercialisation, led by Chairman Senator Orji Uzo Kalu, in Port Harcourt for discussions with the state government. While clarifying that his actions were not driven by personal conflicts, the Governor emphasized his commitment to safeguarding Rivers State from external threats and protecting the interests of its supporters against those who seek to exert control over the lives of others.

Addressing the failed attempt to detonate the explosive at the upscale Hotel Presidential in Port Harcourt, Governor Fubara condemned the incident as a deliberate tactic aimed at fueling calls for a state of emergency by individuals seeking to destabilize the State for their own nefarious agendas.

During a meeting with a delegation from the Senate Committee at the Government House in Port Harcourt, the Governor accused those who had discouraged the committee’s visit of instigating the act to gain undue advantage.

Governor Fubara revealed that certain individuals had orchestrated a protest involving hired youths demanding an extension of tenure for former local government chairmen who had completed their mandated three-year terms.

In recounting the incident, Governor Fubara disclosed, “As a matter of fact, let me tell you, I know of everything that is happening. Yesterday (Tuesday), they (protesters) were aware that you are in the State. So, there was an attempt to create a serious problem. There was a plan to detonate dynamite at the Hotel Presidential because you people were there. But this God that we serve, it happened that the man who was trying to do it, detonated it but just a few seconds after, it blew his hands off.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
