He said: “I thank you for the political support you gave me when there was no hope. At a time when the GOC came to kill Rivers people, but you stood firm. Yes, he may have killed our people, but we will continue to protect our votes.
“They say they will remove me through the tribunal, but we defeated them during the elections. If it is to conduct elections, they will never win.
“Someone who says he never met me before and has never been to Government House would say I am fighting him because I tried to bribe him with billions of naira. The GOC has been fully involved in oil bunkering. He should explain his involvement instead of the false allegation.
“The House of Representatives Committee on Army was here, he could not say he was bribed. He is saying this because he is involved in oil bunkering. They know it is correct. Elections that we defeated you and your party, why would I have to pay bribe. We defeated you in that election. The man you have not met, how could he have offered to bribe you?”

He claimed GOC recently appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Army, but never made any such allegation, because nothing like that took place.

He thanked members of the Former Rivers State Executive Council for their contributions to the development of the state.
He said: “It has been a rewarding experience and I am quite impressed that one worked with these persons of capacity.
“All the achievements we recorded were made possible because you worked”. The governor said that some of the members of the dissolved executive council would make it back to the new council.
Deputy Governor Ipalibo Harry Banigo commended the governor for providing purposeful leadership that has helped to transform the state.
