Fubara To Investigate Wike, Sets Up Panel Of Inquiry



Rivers High Court Deals Blow to Wike's Faction, Invalidates Amended Local Government Law

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has announced plans to establish a panel of inquiry to investigate the governance of the state.

News About Nigeria reports that the governor is also planning to investigate the affairs of his predecessor in office, Nyesom Wike.

This announcement came shortly after the swearing-in of Dagogo Iboroma as the new Attorney General of the state, following his screening and confirmation by the Victor Oko-Jumbo-led House of Assembly.

Governor Fubara said that the state is facing a critical situation, where the ongoing political crisis has made it clear that a resolution cannot be reached amicably.

He accused his opponents of deliberately sabotaging his administration, despite his efforts to resolve the issues peacefully.

The governor vowed to make tough decisions moving forward, regardless of how hurtful they may seem.

In responding to comments made by former Attorney General, Zacchaeus Adangor (SAN), and former Commissioner for Works, Alabo George-Kelly, the governor accused Adangor of sabotaging his administration by filing a nolle prosequi against the state’s interests.

He also addressed George-Kelly’s comments, stating that he would have been promoted beyond Level 14 in the civil service before his retirement.

According to the governor, he was already on Level 13 as a Chief Account Officer before 2023, and even if it was a mistake, he is now the Governor by the grace of God.

This development comes amid an ongoing political conflict between Governor Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor, now the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

Recently, the Rivers State House of Assembly, loyal to Wike, accused Governor Siminalayi Fubara of dishonesty, threatening to resume impeachment proceedings against him if he continues to breach the constitution.

The lawmakers accused the governor of refusing to hold up to his end of the Presidential Peace Accord, which he willfully signed without coercion.

The lawmakers threatened to resume the impeachment proceedings should Governor Fubara continue what they referred to as constant constitutional breaches.
