Commission begins hearing in Rivers monorail project on Thursday
The Rivers Judicial Commission of Inquiry on the administration of former Gov. Chibuike Amaechi will begin hearing in the state monorail project on Thursday, the Chairman, Justice George Omereji, has said.
Omereji made the statement in Port Harcourt on Wednesday after counsel to the panel, Mr Zacchaeus Adangor, announced the failure of persons summoned to testify on the disbursement of four billion naira agricultural loan to appear.
He said that the commission would begin hearing in the project when it resumed on Thursday.
“In view of the fact that there is no witness to give evidence on the
agriculture scheme, the commission has decided to adjourn the
proceedings till Aug 27 for the hearing on the monorail project,” he
The commission summoned the Commissioner for Agriculture, Mr Emma Chinda, and 12 former local government chairmen representing co-operative societies to appear and explain issues on the disbursement of the agriculture fund.
