In a dramatic development, five commissioners who are known to be loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, have tendered their resignations from the cabinet of Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State.

The sudden move has sent shockwaves through the political circles in the state, with many speculating that it may be connected to the ongoing corruption probe.

The five commissioners, whose names are: Prof. Chinedu Mmom (Education), Dr. Gift Worlu (Housing), Austen Ben-Chioma (Environment), Inime Aguma (Social Welfare), and Jacobson Nbina (Transport), who are all loyal to Wike, were said to have submitted their resignation letters to the governor’s office, citing personal reasons.

However, sources close to the government have hinted that the resignations may be linked to the corruption allegations under the former governor Wike.

Governor Fubara’s administration had launched investigation into Wike’s eight years tenure allegations of corruption and mismanagement of state funds. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been investigating several top officials in the state government, including some of the commissioners who have now resigned.

The resignations have sparked a flurry of reactions, with many calling for greater transparency and accountability in the state government.

The governor’s office has not issued an official statement on the resignations, but sources indicate that the governor is considering a major cabinet reshuffle in the coming days. The development has also raised questions about the future of the governor’s administration, with many wondering if the resignations are a sign of deeper problems within the government.

As the situation continues to unfold, one thing is clear: the people of Rivers State are demanding answers and accountability from their leaders. The corruption probe and the subsequent resignations have brought the issue of good governance to the forefront, and it remains to be seen how the government will respond to the growing concerns of the citizens.
