Rivers State Governor swears in new Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice

The executive Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Fubara has charged the newly sworn-in Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice,  Dagogo Israel Iboroma, (SAN) to set up a panel of inquiry that will investigate the affairs of governance in the state. To ensure transparency

Governor Fubara who gave the charge shortly after the new  Attorney General was sworn in at the Executive Council Chamber of Government House, Port Harcourt on Monday, said the decision is to put the records and activities of governance in the state to put it in proper order.

The governor said the choice of Dagogo Israel Iboroma as Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in the state at this critical time in the history of the state is to tap from his wealth of professional experience as a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, (SAN)  for the service of the state.

“Why are we bringing you at this critical time? We have a lot of issues around us. We believe that you are not going to be one that when they serve you with a matter, you will file a nolly or file something to kill us. Please defend us, because we know you are going to defend us. Your record is clean and you are a gentleman, peaceful, and not a noisemaker. People like that are endowed and they have the fear of God.”

“There is also the major issue we are having. Since I assumed office, there is also a high number of garnishees, which I feel is deliberate. Please see what you can do to help us.”

Governor Fubara said the occasion marked the beginning of a new era in his administration as he has resolved to move forward.

While berating the former Attorney-General of the State, Prof Zacheaus Adangor, (SAN) for sabotaging the state and acting in the most dishonorable way despite his averred claims of being a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Sir Fubara urged the new Attorney-General to defend the state strongly as there were legal battles (both economic and political) to contend with.
