The statement reads in part, “The publication needed clarification but for reason best known to the writer who neither contacted the deputy governor, Silas Agara nor did he get across to any government official for clarification as claimed.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Al-Makura is not missing but has been conducting the affairs of the state as enshrined by the constitution of the federal Republic of Nigeria".
