The Special Adviser to Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, Deaconess Emerald Udeakaji, has resigned over marital issues.
In a letter to the governor dated December 30, 2020, Udeakaji noted that she resigned to save her marriage which is falling apart due to her appointment.
Udeakaji, however, appreciated the governor for giving her the opportunity to serve the god people of Ebonyi state.
The letter reads: “I sincerely want to thank His Excellency and her Excellency and the entire Umahi family for the opportunity they gave to me to serve in this government.
“Thank you so much Sir and Ma. My resignation is born out of family issues. I have given my 100% loyalty to this government but my family is tiring apart.
“The Bible says, “Woman be submissive to your husband”. The Bible also said that two shall become one”. As a Deaconess that I am, I have to go back and study my scripture very well. In obedience to these scriptures, I decided to resign and save my marriage.
“I sincerely and most humbly appreciate all that you have done for me. I am not an ungrateful person and can never be. Please bear with me for my children’s sake. I wish you well in your future political endeavour.”
