Sharing buttons

Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice of Rivers State, Zacchaeus Adangor has rejected his redeployment as Commissioner for Special Duties

Zacchaeus also tendered his resignation from the state executive council.

FIDELINFO recalls that Zacchaeus had, on 14 December, 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.

Zacchaeus and other commissioners who resigned due to the political crisis in the state, however, returned to the government after being reconfirmed by the state House of Assembly.

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

In a letter sighted by FIDELINFO 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
