Why Adangor and Kamalu resigned from Fubara's cabinet

Adangor and Kamalu resigned from Fubara's cabinet after the governor directed their redeployment to the ministry of special duties (governor's office) and ministry of employment generation and empowerment.

Mmon's resignation letter, dated May 15, 2024, was addressed to Governor Fubara through the secretary to the state government (SSG). He said the reason for his resignation was because the workspace under the governor had become toxic.

The resignation letter reads in part:

“It is a truism that a calm and friendly environment would stimulate efficient service delivery and enhanced productivity. It is, however, unfortunate to note that my current workspace has become toxic and no longer guarantees a favourable environment to enable me to realize my set targets for the education sector in the state."
