Rivers Crisis Update:  Four Wike Loyalists Quit Fubara’s Cabinet

A fresh wave of resignations hit the Rivers State Government headed by Governor Siminalayi Fubara as four more commissioners, who are loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, have resigned from the governor’s cabinet. 

They are  Chinedu Mmom (from the Ministry of Education), Gift Worlu (from the Ministry of Housing), Jacobson Nbina (from the Ministry of Transport), and Inime Aguma who resigned as Commissioner for Social Welfare and Rehabilitation.

However, inime was quoted as saying “there is no room for progressional development in the workplace”.

Mmom and Worlu cited a toxic working environment as the main reason for their exit while Nbina cited “unresolved political crisis” in the state as his reason for exit.

The four persons were among the commissioners who first resigned from the governor’s cabinet last December in the wake of the political crisis in the state but were readmitted into Fubara’s cabinet following President Bola Tinubu’s intervention.

Earlier, three commissioners, Zacchaeus Adangor, Emeka Woke and Alabo George-Kelly also resigned from the Ministries of Justice, Special Projects and Works respectively.
