Defection: Ebonyi commissioner resigns

 


The Ebonyi State Commissioner for Inter-Governmental Affairs, Lazarus Ogbee, has resigned his appointment with the state government.


Ogbee’s resignation was contained in a letter dated November 12, 2020, titled ‘Resignation of Appointment as Honourable Commissioner,’ a copy of which was obtained by The PUNCH on Thursday night.


The commissioner’s resignation may not be unconnected to Governor David Umahi’s decision to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, under which he won two terms as governor, to the ruling All Progressives Congress.


There are indications that the commissioner may not defect from the PDP to the APC.


A stalwart of the PDP in the state, who spoke to The PUNCH on condition of anonymity, said Ogbee’s resignation was expected, adding that more State Executive Council members would naturally follow suit, soon.
