Ogbonnaya Enyim, special assistant to Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi on school monitoring, has resigned.
In his resignation letter dated March 30, Mr Enyim alleged the governor preferred his younger sister to him and denied him rights as the first son of his family to bury his father.
“Your Excellency, your preference for my younger sister for reasons best known to you have compelled me to take this decision in order to avoid rancour and acrimony,” read the letter.
“Your Excellency, against every known tradition and good conscience, your decision to interfere and deny me my right as the first son to organise a befitting burial for my father in line with my already concluded arrangements, after spending fortunes is not acceptable to me.
“I hereby resign my appointment as SA under your administration with immediate effect.”
In December 2020, another aide of the governor resigned for family reasons. The aide Emerald Udeakaji was a special assistant on business development before her resignation to “save” her marriage
Umahi has witnessed several resignations in his administration since he left the Peoples Democratic Party for the All Progressives Congress last November.
