Rivers State attorney-general Adangor resigns

The Attorney-General (AG) and Commissioner for Justice in Rivers State Zacchaeus Adangor has resigned.

In a letter dated November 14, 2023, and addressed to Rivers State governor, Siminalayi Fubara, Adangor said that his resignation was based purely on personal reasons.

“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,” he explained.

“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.”

It is believed that Adangor’s resignation may be due to the political crisis rocking Rivers State.

The State House of Assembly was demolished on Wednesday before the presentation of the 2024 budget by Fubara.

Adangor was Rivers attorney-general for eight years under the administration of current FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, who was governor from May 2015 to May 2023.
