It appears like Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State who in some quarters is said to have deliberately joined a sinking ship will be left to drown alone.
Report has it that over 10 of his aides who decamped to the ruling APC with him last year had so far resigned their appointments and returned back to the PDP.
Some time last year, he complained that many political heavyweights in his state refused to join him in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), even after they had planned the defection together. According to him their refusal to join the APC with him was because he didn’t carry them along to see President Muhammadu Buhari.
Last week, Naija Buzz News reported that two of his aides resigned their appointments from his government and returned back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This week, three of his technical aides; Nwigbo Ransomed, Amaechi Nwovu and Onweagu Chika, resigned their appointments and returned back to the PDP.
The letters of resignation of the three aides read below in part;
“I, Onweagu Chika, most sincerely wish to appreciate you for your appointing me as a Technical Assistant on Water Resources. I am indeed humbled for your kind gesture to me as I served in your government. I hereby resign.”
“I, 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 Nwigbo Ransomed.”
