Nine commissioners from the state executive council resigned on Wednesday, prompting the Rivers State House of Assembly to re-screen and re-confirm them.

The statement was signed by Mr. Emeka Amadi, the Clerk of the House, on Monday in Port Harcourt and contains the following information.

The clerk announced that the following individuals have been appointed as commissioners: Prof. Zacchaeus Adangor (SAN), who is also the attorney general and commissioner for justice; Dr. Des George-Kelly, who is commissioner for works; Emeka Woke, who is commissioner for special duties; Mrs. Inime Aguma, who is commissioner for social welfare and rehabilitation; and Isaac Kamalu, who is commissioner for finance.

Along with them are Commissioners Austin Ben-Chioma for the Environment, Dr. Jacobson Nbina for Transport, Dr. Gift Worlu for Housing, and Professor Chinedu Mmom for Education.

The individual in charge of the screening has instructed the participants to bring forty copies of their resumes, photocopies, and original credentials to the State House of Assembly, Legislative Quarters.

A political crisis between the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, and the current Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, led to a wave of resignations on December 16, 2023, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

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

The re-appointment of the former commissioners who had resigned was one of the conditions of President Tinubu’s peace accord with Fubara, according to NAN.
