Three Pro-Wike Commissioners Resign As Feud With Fubara Rages

Three commissioners in the administration of Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State have resigned following the ongoing feud involving the immediate past governor of the state, Nyesom Wike.


The three who resigned were pro-Wike and were among the nine commissioners who resigned in the early days of the crisis before being reappointed when President Bola Tinubu intervened.


But as the crisis festers, three of the commissioners – Prof. Chinedu Mmom (Education), Dr. Gift Worlu (Housing), and Austen Ben-Chioma (Environment), all Wike loyalists have resigned in separate letters blaming the ongoing crisis.


The three commissioners separately tendered their resignation letters, which were addressed to the governor through the Secretary to the State Government, Dr Tammy Danagogo.
