More aides resign in Ebonyi as battle against Umahi continues


There seems to be no end to the number of aides of the Ebonyi State Governor, Engr. Dave Umahi that are ready to jump sheep.

Barely three days after two of his aides parted ways with his administration, three just threw in the towel and their resignation, TheNation reports, is with immediate effect.

The resignees aee; Nwigbo Ransomed, Amaechi Nwovu and Onweagu Chika. The trio served as Technical Assistants to the Governor.

Their letters of resignation were dated March 16, March 10 and February 22, 2021, respectively.

The registration letters partly read: “I, Hon Onweagu Chika, most sincerely wish to appreciate you for your appointing me as a Technical Assistant (TA) on Water Resources. I am indeed humbled for your kind gesture to me as I served in your Government. I hereby resign.

“I, Hon Amaechi Nwovu E, most humbly bring to your notice, Your Excellency, of my resignation as a Technical Assistant to the Governor on Water Resources with effect from March 10, 2021. The reason for my resignation is personal and best known to me.

“Please, accept this letter as a formal notification to resign my position as a Technical Assistant to the Governor on Environment, effective from February 22, 2021. I am Engr Nwigbo Ransomed.”

Immediately after announcing their resignations, they pitched tent with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

With them, appointees of Umahi who resigned since he left the PDP for the APC last November have risen to 13.
