Despite Being Declared Wanted By EFCC, Former Accountant-General Wins Rivers PDP Governorship Primary

Days after being declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), a former Rivers State Accountant-General, Siminialayi Fubara, on Wednesday clinched the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship ticket.

Mr Fubara, who is wanted by the anti-graft agency over N435 billion fraud, polled 721 votes to defeat a former Commissioner for Finance in the state, Isaac Kamalu, who scored 86, at the primary election of the party in Port Harcourt.

Mr Fubara, who hails from Opobo Nkoro Local Government Area of the state recently resigned as the state Account-general to focus on his governorship ambition.

His ambition is widely speculated to have the blessings of the state governor, Nyesom Wike, who is himself a presidential aspirant in the same party.

The chairman of the primary organising committee, Walter Mbotu, declared Mr Fubara winner having satisfied the conditions of the party guidelines and scored the highest number of votes.

  1. Only in Nigeria this will happen. They will always say Nigeria is not a good country. They vote them into office. This is just another Wike’s job.

  2. Nigerians don’t steal ” millions” no more, they do ” billions.” What a shithole country.
