Why I’m resigning again -Adangor, ex-Attorney-General of Rivers State

A former Attorney General of Rivers State, Prof. Zacchaeus Adangor (SAN), who was deployed to the Ministry of Special Duties in cabinet reshuffle by Governor Siminalayi Fubara on Tuesday, has again resigned from the cabinet.

Adangor, a loyalist of the immediate past governor and Minister of Federal Capital Territory Abuja, Nyesom Wike, accused Fubara of interfering in his duties, according to his resignation letter addressed to the Secretary of the Rivers State Government, Tammy Danagogo.

In the letter our reporter sighted on Wednesday, with Ref: MJ/HAG/SSG/4/VOL.1/22 dated 24th April, 2024, and titled: Cabinet Reshufflement: Notice Of Rejection Of Deployment And Resignation From The Rivers State Executive Council, Adangor explained that he chose to leave the government to preserve his reputation.

He alleged that the governor had directed him not to defend or oppose suits filed against the Attorney-General and the Government of Rivers State by individuals sponsored by the same state government.

The letter partly reads: “The Governor of Rivers State had, in the past couple of weeks willfully interfered with the performance of my duties as the Honourable Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice.

“I wish to state for the record, that I am no longer willing to continue to serve in the administration of His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, GSSRS, Governor of Rivers State, in any capacity whatsoever.

“It is important to mention that the Governor of Rivers State had in the past couple of weeks willfully interfered with the performance of my duties as the Honourable Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Rivers State by directing me not to defend, oppose, or appear in suits insinuated against the Honourable Attorney-General and the Government of Rivers State by persons admittedly hired and sponsored by the Government of Rivers State.”
