Zacchaeus Adangor, the Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice of Rivers State, has resigned.

Adangor stated in a letter to state Governor Siminalayi Fubara that his resignation was “purely for personal reasons.”

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

“For the avoidance of doubt, from the said office is based on personal principles.”

“I wish to thank Your Excellency for the opportunity and privilege granted me to serve in your administration as a member of the cabinet. My Family and I are indebted to Your Excellency in gratitude.”

Adangor was a member of former Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike’s cabinet, who was reappointed by Fubara.

According to sources close to Adangor, he resigned as a result of the governor’s “unconstitutional” presentation of the budget to five members of the House of Assembly, as well as the demolition of the state House of Assembly premises on Wednesday.
