Just days after the governor of Ebonyi state, Dave Umahi, reportedly informed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of his plan to leave for the All Progressives Congress (APC), one of his commissioners has resigned.
OduNews.com reports that Ebonyi’s commissioner for Inter-Governmental Affairs, Lazarus Ogbee, announced his resignation in a letter to the governor.
In the letter dated Thursday, November 12, Ogbee chose not to disclose his reason for leaving his job in the defecting governor’s executive cabinet.
He, however, thanked the governor for choosing him to serve the Ebonyi people in the first place and his party, PDP, for supporting him in his role in the Umahi cabinet.

The commissioner also returned all government properties in his possession, including an official car.
Before becoming a commissioner, Ogbee represented Ebonyi’s Ikwo/Ezza South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.
