Fubara not willing to reconcile with Wike says Ex-Rivers commissioner Adangor

Prof Zacchaeus Adangor, a former Rivers State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, said Governor Siminalayi Fubara is unwilling to reconcile with his godfather, Nyesom Wike.

Adangor said this in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday.

“He (Fubara) is not the person people think he is, he is not a peacemaker,” he said.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said he turned in his resignation letter in April because he refused to obey Fubara when he allegedly asked him to institute suits to challenge the validity of the Presidential Peace Pact by President Bola Tinubu on the feud between him and Wike.

The ex-commissioner said his ordeal with the governor began on December 18, 2023, after the Presidential Peace Pact in Abuja.

He said Fubara did not consult him before he was redeployed from the justice ministry to the Ministry of Special Duties.

He said he found his redeployment ridiculous, hence his resignation.

The ex-justice commissioner said it was misleading that the governor claimed that he (Adangor) sabotaged his administration while in office as attorney general.

“Politically, I am loyal to Wike, there is no doubt about that. I wouldn’t know whether that angered him or not.

“But as far as I remember, he (Fubara) was angry that I insisted on conducting a matter in accordance with the understanding of the law,” Adangor said.

The ex-attorney general said, “I never applied to work for Governor Fubara; I was invited to serve under him. Even after my first resignation on the 14th of November, I never wanted to return as a person, but the President asked us to go back.”

He said the governor did not evince any genuine desire to have the face-off between himself and his Wike resolved.

“I will give you two instances to show that he (Fubara) is not the person people think he is; he is not a peacemaker.

“I have been on leave of absence from Rivers State University; that’s my place of primary assignment. When I resigned on the 24th of April 2024,

“Fubara thought I would return to the university, but I am aware that he had directed the university’s management not to allow me to return to the university. That cannot be a decision taken by a person of peaceful disposition.”
