Breaking: Another Wike loyalist quits Fubara’s cabinet

Rivers State Commissioner for Education, Professor Chinedu Mmom, has resigned as a member of the State Executive Council.

This was disclosed in his resignation letter dated May 15, 2024.

He is a known loyalist of former governor Nyesom Wike.

Citing reason, 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 work space has become toxic and no longer guarantees a favourable environment to enable me realize my set targets for the Education sector in the State.

“There is 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.”
