The Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has mandated the auditor general of the state, to begin the audit of the accounts of the 23 Local Government Areas for the past three years.

Gwg.ng reports that the development is coming up amid the ongoing political crisis bedevilling the state.

Additional reports by Channels TV revealed that while swearing in the Caretaker Committee Chairmen of the Local Government Areas, on Wednesday, the governor explained that the measure is intended to serve as a check for the incoming officials.

He urged the caretaker chairmen not to see themselves as superheroes, but to protect the interests of their people, and demonstrate that the government made the right choice in appointing them.

He emphasized that the current events are a product of democracy.

Fubara explained that the fight against tenure extension is not just about the state, but the entire country, as allowing it in one state could lead to it being replicated nationwide.

He, however, cautioned that their tenure would not be excessively long, because the process for local government area elections would commence soon.

He warned against violence, stating that it is not his approach, urging the officials to sort out the salaries and entitlements of the outgoing chairmen.
