Rivers Crisis: Wike’s Ally Resigns As Commissioner Over Redepolyment

The former governor of Rivers State and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike’s ally, Zacchaeus Adangor has resigned as the  Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General of the State.

New Telegraph reports that Adangor’s resignation following his redeployment to another ministry by the incumbent Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

Adanjor was redeployed as Commissioner for Special Duties but tendered his resignation from the state executive council.


Recalls that Zacchaeus had, on 14 December, resigned his position as the Attorney-General of the state following the face-off between Governor Fubara and the Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike.

Zacchaeus and other commissioners who resigned due to the political crisis in the state, however, returned to the government after being reconfirmed by the state House of Assembly.

Fubara, earlier in the week, reshuffled his cabinet and redeployed Zacchaeus as the commissioner for Special Duties (Governor’s Office).

In a letter sighted by New Telegraph and addressed to the Secretary to the Rivers State government, Zacchaeus rejected his new office.

Zacchaeus, a strong ally of Wike, in his resignation letter, accused Governor Fubara of interfering with the performance of his duties as Attorney General of the state.
