– Christian Madubuko, the Anambra commissioner for Diaspora, has left Governor Obiano’s cabinet
– Madubuko made this known on Monday, January 3, in Akwa
– The former commissioner said his resignation was hinged on the high level of corruption in Obiano’s government
In what seems like a drama, the Anambra state commissioner for Diaspora affairs, indigenous artworks, culture and tourism, Christian Madubuko, has resigned from his appointment.
The Nation reports that Madubuko’s resignation letter was dated December 11, 2020, and was made available to newsmen on Monday, January 4, in Akwa, the capital of the state.
Legit.ng gathered that the former commissioner said Governor Willie Obiano’s government made him tender his resignation.
He, however, advised Obiano to rise up to the challenges of leadership and take charge of his government.
Quoting the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the newspaper noted that Madubuko in the last three years served as commissioner for industry, trade and commerce and commissioner for road, rail and water transportation.
The resignation letter read:
“It is my pleasure to thank all of you for the time we spent together in the service of our state; indeed, it was three years of action-packed lessons both positive and negative.
“In the cause of fighting corrupt, individuals holding the state revenue on the throat, all manner of frivolous petitions against me were written to the governor accusing me of several misdeeds.”
He alleged that on several occasions, “agents of darkness’’ tried to bribe him, adding that when people fight corruption, the menace would fight back.
The ex-commissioner also said that he fought various “parasitic interests’’ and secured their conviction, a feat he said he achieved but not without stepping on toes.
He said those toes he stepped on are now in the prowl for his life, alleging that his life is no longer safe.
In his reaction, the state commissioner for information, C-Don Adinuba, said the government had received the resignation letter by Madubuko.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state raised alarm over an alleged plan by some hoodlums to invade the southeastern state on Monday, October 26.
It was reported that Obiano stated this at the weekend when he hosted the deputy inspector general of police, Celestine Okoye, in Aguleri, Anambra East local government area.
In another report, Some staff of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) were suspended over extortion of National Identity Number (NIN) applicants.
The minister of communications and digital economy, Ali Isa Ibrahim Pantami directed the immediate suspension of the staff on Sunday, January 3.
The directive was contained in a statement issued by the NIMC, adding that the staff were involved in extortion of applicants at the NIMC Bauchi and Kaduna state offices.
