BREAKING: Rivers State Commissioner of Special Projects, Emeka Woke Resigns

The Rivers State Commissioner for Special Projects, Chief Emeka Woke, has reportedly tendered his resignation from Governor Siminalayi Fubara’s cabinet, following the recent departure of Attorney General Zachaus Adango.

While Adango cited personal reasons for his exit, Woke’s resignation letter remains confidential and hasn’t been publicly released, per Nigerian Tribune.

This development comes amidst a bitter political rift between Governor Fubara and his predecessor and FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike. The rift has already led to the defection of 27 lawmakers from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

There are suggestions that Woke’s resignation could be a gesture of loyalty to Wike, whom he previously served.

The crisis in Rivers State heightened on Wednesday when the state government demolished the state legislative chamber.

The state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Joseph Johnson, in a statement on Wednesday, said the place was unsafe for human habitation because of the recent explosion and fire incident there.

Just before the demolition of the chamber, four lawmakers loyal to the state Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, led by factional Speaker, Edison Ehie, held a plenary at the Government House, Port Harcourt. They thereafter okayed the state budget, presented to them by Governor Fubara.

  1. Good.the governor should appoint New credible men for those office’s. He is the chief executive officer of the state. Also the chief security officer. Getting rid of the bad robish. They are wike errand boy’s.and his slave s. They have no mind of their own. Just there to obey their master. Now God wants to liberate River’s state. The Governor should sit up and start acting on his constitutional rights. A new Nigeria is possible

  2. The problem of River State is because of the porousity of the nation’s constitution. How can any outgoing governor who finished his tenure seek to control the state after his exit from office just in the name of god’sfather. If not because that the sovereignty of the Nigeria consideration has been weakened by the impunitive attitude of our leaders and the judiciary, how can there law makers get the gut to mock the authority of the state with what they call plenary, for heaven’s sake and the law is silent or dead about the whole ugly dispositions without anyone calling them to order. Perhaps tomorrow the whole country will rise against the Innocent governor who should be allowed to do his lagitimate duties without any hindrance. If we don’t stop the shameful act every other governors will be doing same and anyone will suffer same in his own time. The judiciary is no longer respected because they have sold themselves to public mockery. I wonder what future Nigeria is going to have if it even exist the way things are going.
