Breaking: Rivers Commissioner Rejects Redeployment, Resigns

Must read

In a surprising turn of events, Professor Zaccaeus Adangor, SAN, the Rivers State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, has rejected his redeployment to the Ministry of Special Duties (Governor’s Office) and tendered his resignation from the State Executive Council.

Adangor’s decision came swiftly, just 24 hours after Governor Siminalayi Fubara announced a minor cabinet reshuffle, which included his redeployment. Fubara issued the redeployment letter on Tuesday, through the Secretary to the State Government, Dr Tammy Danagogo.

The reshuffle also involved the relocation of the State Commissioner for Finance, Isaac Kamalu, to the Ministry of Employment Generation and Economic Empowerment.

Adangor and Kamalu, along with seven other commissioners, had previously resigned from Fubara’s cabinet amidst the political turbulence that engulfed the state. They are known loyalists of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

In a personally signed letter dated April 24, addressed to the SSG, Adangor expressed his rejection of the redeployment and his resignation from the Rivers State Executive Council.

In the letter titled, “Cabinet Reshufflement: Notice of Rejection of Deployment and Resignation from the Rivers State Executive Council,” Adangor accused Governor Fubara of interfering with the discharge of his duties as Commissioner.

Among his grievances, Adangor highlighted the governor’s directive for him to abstain from defending, opposing, or appearing in suits against his office and the Government of Rivers State, even when initiated by individuals funded by the state.

After serving dutifully for five years, Adangor stated that he no longer wished to continue under Governor Fubara’s administration, citing the need to preserve his reputation.

He concluded the letter by expressing his well wishes to the state administration under Governor Fubara.
