Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, has announced plans to establish a judicial panel of inquiry to investigate the conduct of governance in the state prior to his tenure, which began on May 29, 2023.

This significant announcement was made during the swearing-in ceremony of Mr. Dagogo Israel Iboroma, SAN, as the new Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

Scope of Investigation: While the exact parameters of the investigation remain undefined, Governor Fubara suggested that the inquiry could examine governance practices dating back to 1999.

Governor Fubara’s Address: Governor Fubara highlighted the importance of the new Attorney-General’s role, emphasizing the critical nature of his appointment:

“My brother, Dagogo Iboroma, you are now the Attorney-General of our dear state. SSG (Secretary to the State Government), give him his letter. He is the Attorney-General.

We have many issues to address. We believe you will not be one to dismiss cases or take actions that could harm us. You have a significant task ahead. We will establish a judicial panel of inquiry to investigate governance affairs. Brace up; this is non-negotiable.

Please, defend us. We trust you because your record is clean. You are a gentleman, peaceful, and god-fearing. People like you are endowed with integrity.”

Implications: The inquiry aims to scrutinize previous administrations, including the tenure of Governor Nyesom Wike, to ensure accountability and transparency in governance.
