Kamalu in a letter of resignation he addressed to Governor Siminalayi Fubara and Dr. Tammy Danagogo, the Secretary to the Rivers State Government blamed his resignation on intractable political crisis state, which he had hoped would have been resolved with the intervention of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

In a three page letter Kamalu said it will be difficult to deliver good governance in absence of peace.

He tried to reel out his achievements in office as Commissioner of Finance even in previous administration alluding to that steady rise in internally generated accruing to the State.
