Fubara reshuffles cabinet as he redeploys Wike’s loyalists from finance, justice ministries

Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers, has redeployed two commissioners in his cabinet in a major shake-up since he took the mantle of leadership of the state.


Tammy Danagogo, secretary to the state government (SSG), announced the development in a statement issued on Tuesday night, April 24.

Fubara redeployed Zacchaeus Adangor, attorney-general and commissioner for justice, to the Ministry of Special Duties.

Fubara also deployed Isaac Kamalu, commissioner for finance, to the Ministry of Employment Generation and Economic Empowerment.


Danagogo said the commissioners are to hand over all documents to the permanent secretaries in their outgoing ministries, adding that deployment is with immediate effect.

The two commissioners are loyalists of Nyesom Wike, the immediate former governor of Rivers and incumbent minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and they resigned from their positions following the political feud between Wike and Fubara last year.

They were later reinstated after Wike and Fubara signed a peace accord facilitated by President Bola Tinubu.

Wike and Fubara are locked in a struggle for control of Rivers’ political structure.
