As Accountant-General, I Acted On Approvals, Have Nothing To Fear – Fubara

Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers, says he acted based on approvals during his time as the accountant-general of Rivers state. 

Fubara spoke on Tuesday while inaugurating Egbeda internal roads in the state.

Early this month, Fubara said a judicial panel of inquiry will be set up to investigate the management of the state’s resources and affairs under Nyesom Wike, his successor and current minister of the federal capital territory (FCT).

Fubara was the accountant-general under Wike. He was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in May 2022 over an alleged N435 billion fraud.

However, the governor said he has records of all his activities under the past administration in the state and is “not scared of anything”.

“What we bring to our people is service delivery at record time and cost-effective. Everything we are doing is in my white paper. I carry it along. There is no issue of any manipulation. Call me any day, any time it is there,” he said.

”Even the ones l did before this time, I still have all the records. If you call me any day, I will bring my records of all my activities in government. I know that, as a civil servant, what is most important is record-keeping.

“I am not scared of anything. Anybody who calls me up any day, any time, I have my records to show. I have all the approvals to show that I acted based on approvals and not personal decisions. We are not going to rest until we make everyone happy in Rivers state.”
