The News Agency of Nigeria reports that on December 16, 2023, a gale of resignations had hit the State’s Executive Council following the political crisis between the Governor of the state, Siminalayi Fubara, and his predecessor, the Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

Adangor, George-Kelly, Woke, Aguma, Kamalu, Mmom and Ben-Chioma, resigned.

NAN also reports that the reinstatement of the former commissioners who resigned their appointments formed part of the demands of President Tinubu’s peace agreement with Fubara.
