Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has apologised to the people of the state over the recent political crisis that emanated from the bombing of the state House of Assembly.

He described the crisis as “regrettable anxieties of the last few days”, saying it was important to make sacrifices for peace to reign.

Fubara, in a statement he personally signed titled, ‘Peace is Priceless’, issued on Saturday morning in Port Harcourt and sent to newsmen, thanked President Bola Tinubu for his “fatherly intervention” which he said opened a series of communication channels aimed at arriving at a peaceful resolution of the crisis.

While recalling the bombing of the state House of Assembly and the division among the lawmakers, the governor explained that his visit to the House was to assess the level of damage caused by the fire and undertake remedial measures to protect lives and property within the Assembly complex.

The governor further said no sacrifice was too much for him to make, adding that it was the collective responsibility of his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, and himself to use their positions to advance the progress, security and well-being of our people.
