Okafor Ofiebor/Port Harcourt

The political crisis in Rivers State has taken another dimension with the Special Assistant to Governor Amaechi on Conflict Resolution, Mr Obinna Anyanwu resigning his appointment.

In a letter dated 20 May, 2013 and addressed to Governor Amaechi, Obinna Anyanwu said his resignation was occasioned by “recent political development in our great party PDP Rivers state chapter and my father’s position as regards to his call for your resignation as the Executive Governor of Rivers State.”

“I wish to tender my resignation with immediate effect since it is only natural and incongruent to still remain in office.

“I therefore thank you very much for the opportunity you offered me to serve in your administration,” he stressed.

It would be recalled that recently Obinna’s father, Prince Emma Anyanwu had called on the governor to resign from office.

Prince Anyanwu said his call for the governor to resign was predicated on the governor’s alleged loss of the party structure that brought him into office and his inability to manage the political crisis in the state.
