In a statement issued by the Rivers State Commissioner for information, Mr. Joseph Johnson, the governor said it was necessary to invite professionals to advise the government on what to do with the building.

Remember, because of the explosives used to attack the complex, the walls had visible cracks, making it unsafe for legislative business.

Johnson said, “After the assessment of the integrity of the complex, the experts warned the government that continuing to use the building in its present state would be disastrous.

“In the interim, the Rivers State Government has provided an alternative venue for the House of Assembly to conduct their affairs pending the rebuilding of the complex.”
