BREAKING: Rivers State Commissioner for Works, George-Kelly Alabo, Resigns

Rivers State Commissioner for Works, Dr. George-Kelly Alabo, has resigned, adding to the growing list of resignations in the state.

This comes just hours after the reported resignation of Special Projects Commissioner, Chief Emeka Woke, and amidst a bitter feud between Governor Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.

Hours before his official resignation, Dr. George-Kelly reportedly posted a cryptic message on Facebook, urging people to “appreciate” their fathers.

He reportedly wrote, “We all have fathers. Pls don’t forget your father. Our fathers laboured for us all to become graduates or whatever we are today. Let’s appreciate them.”

The resignations follow Attorney General Zachaus Adango’s recent departure, citing personal reasons.

The rift between Wike and Fubara has already led to the defection of 27 lawmakers from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The crisis in Rivers State heightened on Wednesday when the state government demolished the state legislative chamber.

The state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Joseph Johnson, in a statement on Wednesday, said the place was unsafe for human habitation because of the recent explosion and fire incident there.

Just before the demolition of the chamber, four lawmakers loyal to the state Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, led by factional Speaker, Edison Ehie, held a plenary at the Government House, Port Harcourt. They thereafter okayed the state budget, presented to them by Governor Fubara.
