Rivers Crisis: Another Wike Loyalist Resigns From Fubara’s Cabinet

A loyalist to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike and Commissioner for Education in Rivers State, Professor Prince Chinedu Mmom has resigned as a member of the State Executive Council (SEC).

This is contained in a resignation letter dated Wednesday, May 15 and sighted by New Telegraph state correspondent.

Recall that Professor Mmom was among the Commissioners who resigned from Governor Fubara’s cabinet last year during the political crisis in the state, before the intervention of President Bola Tinubu.

He returned to the Fubara administration as Commissioner for Education but has publicly shown that his loyalty lies with the former Governor, Wike.

Professor Mmom referenced a “toxic” working environment as his reason for resignation, stating that such an environment would make it impossible to achieve “my set targets for the Education sector in the State.”


The former Commissioner, however, thanked Governor Siminalayi Fubara for the opportunity to serve in his administration and wished him well.

The letter read, “It is a truism that a calm, safe and friendly environment would stimulate efficient service delivery and enhanced productivity.

“It is however unfortunate to note that my current workspace has become toxic and no longer guarantees a favourable environment to enable me to realize my set targets for the Education sector in the State.

“There is a loss of trust, animosity and sharp division among colleagues in the same cabinet which is unhealthy and very unfortunate.

“I want to thank Your Excellency for the opportunity to serve in your cabinet and wish your administration well. Kindly accept the assurances of my esteemed regards.”
