The Ebonyi State Commissioner for Inter -Governmental Affairs, Lazarus Ogbee , has resigned his appointment with the state government .
Ogbee’ s resignation was contained in a letter dated November 12 , 2020 , titled ‘Resignation of Appointment as Honourable Commissioner ,’ a copy of which was obtained on Thursday night.
The commissioner ’ s resignation may not be unconnected to Governor David Umahi ’ s decision to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, under which he won two terms as governor , to the ruling All Progressives Congress .

A stalwart of the PDP in the state , who spoke to newsmen on condition of anonymity , said Ogbee ’s resignation was expected , adding that more State Executive Council members would naturally follow suit , soon .
