Rivers State House of Assembly has confirmed Dagogo Israel Iboroma, SAN, as a Commissioner to serve in the State Executive Council after he was screened during plenary at the auditorium of the Administrative Block Building of Government House in Port Harcourt on Monday.

Rivers Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara had forwarded the name of Iboroma as Commissioner-designate, and requested that he be screened.

The screening and confirmation of the commissioner-nominee was the only item on the order paper of the day, after which the House adjourned sitting to Thursday.


In the days ahead, Iboroma is expected to be named the Attorney-General and commissioner for justice following the resignation of Prof. Zaccheaus Adangor, who has consistently maintained his loyalty to Barr. Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The commissioner-nominee, who was led to the floor of the House by the Sergeant-at-Arms, David Wariboko had fielded questions before the House and assured that his allegiance shall be to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Rivers State Governor and the State.

He also pledged to uphold his oath of office and contribute his professional expertise to further the good governance of the State.

Before Iboroma's confirmation, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Victor Oko-Jumbo, had divided the House for voting after the debate, after which the House affirmed confidence in the nominee, and subsequently confirmed him to serve as commissioner in the State Executive Council.

The speaker then instructed the clerk of the House, Dr G. M. Gillis-West, to convey the resolution of the House to the Executive Governor of Rivers State, who he expressed the appreciation for providing an alternative venue for the Assembly to carry on with their legislative duties.

Rt. Hon. Oko-Jumbo condemned the burning of the hallowed chambers of the State House of Assembly by hoodlums in the night of October 29, 2023, which caused a temporary set back in conducting proceedings of the House.

He said: “You will recall that we woke up on October 30, 2023, to see that some hoodlums and miscreants who did not mean well for our dear State and our people had set the hallowed chambers of the Rivers State House of Assembly on fire, which caused a temporary setback in the performance of our legislative functions. His Excellency's intervention was indeed swift and timely, and we are grateful.”
