Delta LG polls: Commissioner, others resign from office

0 151

Some aides to Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State are contemplating resignation to contest the July 13 council polls in the state.

So far, one commissioner and one special adviser have resigned due to their interest in the polls.

Another school of thought said their resignation was due to Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s marching order.

The governor reportedly told commissioners and political officeholders with vested interests to resign.

Prominent among the commissioners is Joan Onyemaechi, Technical Education Commissioner. Onyemeachi’s resignation is due to her younger brother contesting the chairmanship of Aniocha South LGA.

Controversy dogged Onyemachi, with the Nsukwa clan accusing her of domesticating political offices in her family.

Jaro Egbo, special adviser on transport and coordinator of palliatives from Ughelli North LGA, is also one of them.

Accordingly, his case was specific instructions from the governor to contest the local polls to checkmate the influence of Senator Ovie Omo Agege, the All Progressive Congress governorship candidate in the 2023 election.

Another commissioner who was said to have resigned is Vincent Oyibode, Commissioner for Oil and Gas.

When contacted, however, Oyibode denied the reports of the said resignation.

He said he was not aware of any directive given to commissioners to resign by the governor regarding the council polls.
