The Attorney General of Rivers steps down

Prof. Zacheaus Adangor, the Commissioner for Justice and State Attorney General of Rivers, has resigned.

Governor Sim Fubara received a letter from him on November 14, 2023, announcing his resignation.

He stated that his decision to leave the office was motivated by personal values.

“With effect from the date of this letter, I hereby give Your Excellency Notice of my resignation as the Honorable Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Rivers State.”

“For the purpose of clarity, I am resigning from the aforementioned position due to personal values.”

“I would want to express my gratitude to Your Excellency for giving me the chance and honor of serving as a cabinet member in your government. A portion of the letter said, “My Family and I are indebted to Your Excellency in gratitude.”

Adangor was reappointed by Fubara as a member of the cabinet of former Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike.

Early on in the state’s crisis, there were rumors that the governor had fired the former Attorney General, who was thought to be an associate of the current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory. But that was refuted by the state administration.

According to The DWORLDGIST, the state government’s demolition of the state legislative chamber early on Wednesday gave the Rivers State crisis a new dimension.

In a statement on Wednesday, the state’s commissioner of information and communications, Joseph Johnson, justified the demolition by claiming that the location was dangerous for human occupancy due to a recent explosion and fire occurrence.

The chamber was being demolished when four state legislators who supported Siminalayi Fubara, the governor of the state, gathered in a plenary session in Government House, Port Harcourt, under the direction of Speaker Edison Ehie, a factional leader.

After being elected on the Peoples Democratic Party platform, 27 members of the House switched to the All Progressives Congress on Monday, threatening to veto any requests for approval from the governor.

The members said in their letters to the factional Speaker, Martin Amaewhule, which were read aloud on Monday on the House floor, that they defected due to party disagreement over the competition for the National Secretary post.
