The Rivers State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Prof. Zacheaus Adangor, has resigned.
His resignation was communicated in a letter dated November 14, 2023, and addressed to Governor Sim Fubara. He noted that his exit from office was based on personal principles.
“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, my resignation 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,” the letter read in part.
Adangor was one of the cabinet members of former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, re-appointed by Fubara. At the early stage of the crisis in the state, there were rumours that the former Attorney General, perceived as an ally of the now Minister of FCT had been sacked by the governor. However, that was denied by the state government.
