Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State escalated the political crisis in the state by declaring his intention to probe the administration of his predecessor and godfather, Nyesom Wike, Ekiti News reports.

The governor announced that a judicial panel of inquiry would investigate the governance affairs preceding his assumption of office on May 29 of the previous year.

Governor Fubara, who previously served as the Accountant-General of the state during Wike’s administration, made this announcement during the inauguration of Mr. Dagogo Israel Iboroma (SAN) as Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

Iboroma replaced Prof. Zaccheaus Adangor, who was reassigned to Special Duties before his resignation.

Iboroma was sworn in following a screening process conducted by the three-member House of Assembly, presided over by Victor Oko-Jumbo.

Governor Fubara emphasized that the Attorney-General was appointed at a critical juncture to address legal challenges facing his administration with bravery and courage.

He said: “My brother, Dagogo Iboroma, you are going to be the brand new Attorney-General of our dear State. SSG, give him his letter, he is the Attorney-General.

“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 that when they send service to you, you go and file “nolle prosequi” (a formal notice of discontinuance) or you go and file 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, I am not going back on it.

“Please, defend us. We know that you are going to defend us because your record is clean. You are a gentleman and peaceful. You are not a noise maker. People like you are endowed, and they have the fear of God.”
