Another Umahi's aide resigns

Chief Ogbonnia Oko Enyim, an aide of Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has resigned.

He becomes the latest member of the governor executive council (exco) to resign since he defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) last November.

Enyim, the Special Assistant to the Governor on School Monitoring in Afikpo North Local Government, said in his resignation letter to the governor dated March 30 that Umahi’s current disposition towards him made him realize that he no longer had a place in his government, according to The Nations.

The resignation letter said: “Your Excellency, your preference for my younger sister, for reasons best known to you, has compelled me to take this decision, to avoid rancour and acrimony.

“Your Excellency, against every known tradition and good conscience, your decision to interfere and deny me my right as the eldest son to organize a befitting funeral for my father, in line with my already concluded arrangements, after spending fortunes, is not acceptable to me.

“I hereby resign my appointment as SA under your administration with immediate effect. Kindly accept the assurances of my warmest regards. Thanks for everything.”
