The former governor of Rivers State and current minister of Federal Capital Territory, FCT Mr Nyelsom Wike was alleged to have nominated 15 out of the 16 commissioners while the state Governor, Fubara nominated one.

This was disclosed by the National Coordinator of the South-South Leadership Forum, His Highness Anabs Sara-Igbe during an interview on Arise Television.

Anabs Sara-Igbe said, “out of 16 commissioners, the Governor was only allowed to produce one, while the former governor produced 15.”
