Rivers Crisis: Attorney-General, Adangor rejects redeployment, resigns from cabinet

Must read

Zacchaeus Adangor, Commissioner for Justice and of Rivers State has rejected his redeployment as Commissioner for Special Duties and also resigned from the state executive council.

On December 14, Adangor resigned his position as the Attorney-General of the state, following the face-off between Governor Sim Fubara and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

However, the Attorney-General and other commissioners who resigned due to the political crisis in the state, returned to the government after being reconfirmed by the state House of Assembly.

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

In a letter sighted by DAILY POST 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.
