Mmom, a loyalist of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, is the third reappointed commissioner to resign. Previously, the former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Professor Zacchaeus Adangor, and former Commissioner for Finance, Isaac Kamalu, also stepped down following Fubara’s directive to redeploy them to different ministries.

In his resignation letter dated May 25, 2024, and addressed to the governor through the Secretary to the State Government, Mmom expressed his concerns about the work environment. “A calm and friendly environment stimulates efficient service delivery and productivity. Unfortunately, my current workspace has become toxic and no longer guarantees a favorable environment to achieve my targets for the education sector in the state,” he wrote.

Mmom highlighted issues such as loss of trust, animosity, and sharp divisions among cabinet colleagues, deeming them unhealthy and unfortunate.


He thanked the governor for the opportunity to serve and wished the administration well. He also appealed to his supporters and well-wishers to accept his decision in good faith, stating, “My decision might not go down well with most of you, but it is best given the prevailing circumstances. Many thanks for your understanding,” in a Facebook post.
