Intrigue As Another Umahi’s Aide Resigns



Ebonyi: Why I'm Suing Umahi For N500m - Ex-Aide

The Special Assistant to Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State on School Monitoring, Ogbonnia Oko Enyim, has resigned his appointment with immediate effect.

In a terse letter dated March 30, 2021, Enyim said he resigned due to the governor’s alleged interference in his family affairs.

Enyim, immediate past Chairman of Afikpo North Local Government Area, however, appreciated the governor for the opportunity to serve in his government in various capacities.

The letter reads: “I most humbly write to appreciate Your Excellency, Engr Dr David Nweze Umahi, for the opportunity to serve in your government in various capacities and currently as SA School Monitoring, Afikpo North LGA. It has been a great experience serving under you.

“Your Excellency, Sir, your current dispositions towards me has made me to realise that I have no place any longer in your government.

“Your Excellency, your preference to my younger sister to me for reasons best known to you has compelled me to take this decision; in order 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 first son to organise a befitting burial for my late 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.”
