In his resignation letter dated March 14th and addressed to Fubara, Alabo said his action was to enable him accept the appointment graciously offered him by the President.


He said: “I hereby resign my appointment as the Commissioner for Works in Rivers State to enable me take up an appointment graciously offered to me by the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“I appreciate your Excellency for the opportunity to serve my beloved Rivers State as the Commissioner for Works.”
