The Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara has pronounced plans by his administration to set up panel of inquiry into the governance of the state. Governor Fubara stated this on Monday after swearing in Dagogo Iboroma as the Attorney General of the State.  He emphatically stated that the State is in a critical situation where it has become obvious that the political crisis cannot be resolved. 

“As it is today, in the local parlance, they say the jungle has matured. We will be setting a panel of inquiry to investigate the affairs of governance. So brace up. I am not going back on it”. 

He accused the former Attorney General of sabotaging his administration by filing nolle prosequi against the interest of the State. 

On the comment by George-Kelly, Governor Fubara maintained he would have been promoted beyond Level 14 in the civil servants before his retirement. 

“Even if it is a mistake my emergence as a governor, by the special grace of God, I am here today. Let me also appeal to them, let them continue to make mistakes”. 

The move is the latest twist in the political crisis rocking the State politically. The development has seen a deepening of the feud between Fubara and the State House of Assembly. 

The feud is due to the fallout between Fubara and his predecessor and present Minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike. President Bola Tinubu had waded into the crisis last year but the imbroglio appears to be far from over.
