Chevron’s Agba quits Oshiomhole’s cabinet

Published on September 24, 2012 by   ·   4 Comments

Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, Monday accepted the resignation of Prince Clement Agba, the state Commissioner for Environment and Public Utility.

The acceptance of Prince Agba’s resignation confirmed speculations of his resignation last Friday and a proposed dissolution of Oshiomhole’s present cabinet.

A statement issued yesterday in Benin and signed by Louis Odion, Commissioner for Information and Orientation, said the leave of absence given Mr. Agba by Chevron ended last week, adding that Agba walked into a new office at Chevron as Manager, Community Procurement Operations.

Agba, before joining Oshiomhole’s administration in 2008, was Senior Contracts Advisor to Facilities Engineering to the oil company.

Before his stint at the Environment and Public Utilities Ministry, Agba briefly served as Commissioner for Lands, Survey and Housing.

While wishing the former Commissioner for Environment and Public Utilities well in his new assignment, the Edo governor expressed appreciation for his “robust contributions to the state in the last four years.”

Mr. Odion quoted Governor Oshiomhole as saying that “While Mr. Agba always showed uncommon enthusiasm to work, perhaps most outstanding was his role in the design and execution of the flood and erosion-control programme of our administration.”

Comrade Oshiomhole also thanked Chevron for graciously releasing Agba to serve his home state, adding that “it’s my hope that this great oil company will still be magnanimous enough to avail us of Clem’s prodigious skills if the need arises in future.”

    We should always allow honest and clean men like him to run for public office, but will God fatherism allow? God bless Nigeria.

    One common good thing with ACN’s-controlled States is that they used professionals to run most of their ministries, especially the important ones. This means even though there are areas where godtherism come into play, they still maintain certain standards. I wish Mr. Agba all the best in his future endeavour.
