Akwa Ibom dep gov, Ekere, resigns

AKWA Ibom State Deputy Governor, Mr. Nsima Ekere, on Wednesday resigned his position with immediate effect and without official explanation.
His Chief Press Secretary, Inemesi Ina, in a statement, said Ekere resigned “on personal grounds” and declined to elaborate.
However, there were indications that the Deputy Governor’s resignation might not be unconnected with his governorship ambition.
The Civil Liberties Organisation chairman in the state, Mr. Clifford Thomas, described Ekere’s resignation as a conspiracy.
He added that Ekere had been nursing the ambition to contest the governorship of the state.
He said, “Ekere is not going to wait if he is asked to wait for someone from Uyo senatorial district who had had their turn in the person of Governor Victor Attah. There is a conspiracy yet to be known.
