Five Commissioners Quit Fubara’s Cabinet.

No fewer than five Commissioners on Wednesday resigned as members of the State Executive Council.

This is coming amid the political crisis bedeviling the state following the leadership battle between the incumbent governor, Siminalayi Fubara and his immediate predecessor Nyesom Wike.

Commissioner for Education, Professor Prince Chinedu Mmom was the first to hit the public with his resignation notice contained in a letter he addressed to the state governor through the office of the Secretary to the State Government.

Professor Mmom referenced a “toxic” working environment as his reason for resignation.

Shortly after the report of Mmom’s resignation, the Commissioner for Housing, Gift Worlu also tendered his resignation from Governor Sim Fubara’s government.

Worlu, in his resignation letter which was contained in a letter dated May 15 and directed to the governor, thanked Furaba for the privilege to serve in his government.

Similarly, the state’s Commissioner for Environment, Austen Ben-Chioma also announced his resignation from the cabinet on Wednesday.

In his letter of resignation, Ben-Chioma, who thanked the governor for the privilege to serve, attributed his decision to the lingering political crisis in the state.

Also, Rivers state commissioner for social welfare, Inime Aguma, has resigned from Governor Sim Fubara’s government.

In the same vain, Rivers State Transportation Commissioner, Jacobson Nbina, has resigned his appointment bringing the number of commissioners who left the state executive council on Wednesday, May 15, to four.
