Fubara issues veiled threat at Wike

Fubara issues veiled threat at Wike

Rivers State governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has said he plans to set up a panel of inquiry into the governance of the state.

Governor Fubara stated this on Monday after swearing in a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Dagogo Iboroma, as the Attorney General of the state.

Addressing the new attorney general, Fubara said, “Why are we bringing you at this very critical time? We have a lot of issues around us. We believe that you are not going to be the one who, when they send service to you, goes and files “nolle prosequi” or one thing that would kill us here.”

“Let me also say this: you have a big task. We will be setting up a judicial panel of inquiry to investigate the affairs of governance. So, brace up,” he added.

While the governor did not specify the time frame that the panel would probe, observers believe he would certainly target the administration of his immediate predecessor, Nyesom Wike, with whom he’s in a supremacy war.

In a similar fashion in the northern state of Kano, Governor Abba Yusuf recently set up a commission of inquiry to probe the administration of his immediate predecessor, Abdullahi Ganduje, with whom he’s not in good term.

The screening and confirmation of Iboroma took place on Monday at the Press Unit of the Government House in Port Harcourt, where the factional assembly led by Victor Oko-Jumbo has adopted as its chamber, following an executive order by Governor Fubara relocating the chamber to the government house.

The confirmation of Iboroma comes about two weeks after the resignation of the former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Zaccheaus Adangor, an ally of Wike.

Adangor resigned after he was redeployed to the State Ministry of Special Duties (Governor’s Office).
