Breaking: Four commissioners dump Fubara’s cabinet in one day

The Rivers State Transportation Commissioner, Jacobson Nbina, has resigned his appointment bringing the number of commissioners who left the state executive council on Wednesday, May 15 2024, to four.

Nbina, a loyalist of the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, addressed his letter to Fubara through the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Tammy Danagogo.

Recall that the Commissioner for Education, Professor Prince Chinedu Mmom was the first to tender his resignation notice contained in a letter he addressed to the state governor through the office of the Secretary to the State Government.

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

Shortly after the report of Mmom’s resignation, the Commissioner for Housing, Gift Worlu also tendered his resignation from Governor Sim Fubara’s government.

Worlu, in his resignation letter which was contained in a letter dated May 15 and directed to the governor, thanked Furaba for the privilege to serve in his government.

Similarly, the state’s Commissioner for Environment, Austen Ben-Chioma also announced his resignation from the cabinet on Wednesday.

In his letter of resignation, Ben-Chioma, who thanked the governor for the privilege to serve, attributed his decision to the lingering political crisis in the state.
