He stated this when he received members of the House of Representatives Committee on Public Petitions at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Saturday, May 4, Channels Television reports.

“As far as we are concerned, there are no political issues. I had seen a movie many years ago, entitled, ‘Devil’s Advocate.’ I believe some of you must have seen that movie too,”

“One of the starring characters: Al Pacino said, that pressure makes some people retreat or fail, and to others, it makes them become focused on succeeding. We have chosen to be focused under this pressure.”

Fubara’s Chief Press Secretary, Nelson Chukwudi, made this known in a statement issued on Sunday, May 5. The Punch reports.

Fubara said the unwarranted political crisis has helped him to remain focused on making a positive impact on the lives of the people.

TheTalk.NG recalls that Dele Momodu alleged that the minister of the federal capital territory (FCT) Nyesom Wike is fighting Fubara over the treasury of Rivers state.

Momodu said President Bola Tinubu wanted Wike to get hold of Rivers state to not only give him votes but a structure of money, a structure of having direct access to the treasury.

Why PDP will do everything to keep Wike

Meanwhile, TheTalk.NG reported that a chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Honourable West Frimabo Paul, said Wike is an asset to the party but not indispensable.

West said the PDP values and respects the former Rivers state governor and will do everything to keep him.

The PDP chieftain, however, said keeping Wike will depend on the findings and decisions of the disciplinary committee.
