Don’t Make Probe Political, APC Chieftain Tells Fubara

Business Owners Get Federal Govt’s N150,000 Grant In Ekiti


A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Hon Innocent Ajaelu, has called on Governor Siminalayi Fubara not to politicise his government’s probe of past administrations.

Ajaelu, the former chairman of the Oyigbo local government area, made the call while speaking with LEADERSHIP in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

He, however, said it was within the constitutional rights of the governor to probe past administrations but advised that the probe should not be for a witch-hunt.

Ajaelu called on past administrations in the state to subject themselves to the probe if they don’t have skeletons in their cupboard.

The APC chieftain said: “If the governor wants to probe the past administration, it is within his constitutional powers, at least, to get first-class information on the expenditures of the former governor to keep his records straight and to know whether the handover he was given tallies with whatever proceeds he thinks the government got in the past eight years.

“Why it became a subject of discussion is how it’s being made to the public. It is not as if it is something they have judged already. Making it a public discussion makes it very political or a kind of witch-hunting. For me, if the former administration was very pure, they don’t need to be afraid of anything.”
