Fubara disclosed this during the swearing-in ceremony of Mr. Dagogo Iboroma as the new Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice of the State at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

Addressing Iboroma, the Governor emphasized the critical juncture in the state's governance, highlighting the multitude of legal issues demanding attention with boldness and fortitude. He urged the new attorney general not to falter in serving the state's interests.

Fubara stated: “So, 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” 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.”

He reiterated his hope for resolving the political discord within the family but expressed disappointment over the lack of progress in this regard. Nonetheless, he affirmed the advancement of his administration, citing the establishment of a functional State House of Assembly and the appointment of a seasoned lawyer as Attorney-General as significant steps forward.

“I am happy that this is happening today to mark the beginning of a new era in our administration.

“When I said that I had a reason for being patient, it is because I know that we are all from one family. And if we have a disagreement, no matter how bad it is, it should be resolved amicably.

“But it has become very clear that this disagreement, there is no way to resolve it amicably. And for a lot of reasons, there are visible evidence that there is sabotage, deliberate attempt to sabotage this administration.

“For that reason, we have to move forward. And, moving forward, if it means taking decisions that are going to hurt anybody, we are not going back on the protection of the interest of Rivers people.”
