The Special Adviser (SA) on Business Development to Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, Deaconess Emerald Udeakaji, has resigned.
Deaconess Udeakaji in a letter dated December 30, 2020, to the Governor, said her 100% loyalty to the Government was tearing her family apart, and, therefore, resolved to resign to save her marriage.
“My resignation is borne out of family issues. As a Deaconess, I have gone back to study the Bible which states that ‘Woman be submissive to your husband. The Bible also said that two shall become one’. In obedience to these scriptures, I decided to resign and save my marriage”, She said.
Mrs Udeakaji thanked Governor Umahi for the opportunity and wished him well in his future political endeavour.
The letter reads in full;
“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 borne out of family issues. I have given my 100% loyalty to this government but my family is tearing apart.
“The Bible says, ‘Woman be submissive to your husband’. The Bible also said that ‘two shall become one’. As a Deaconess as 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.
“Thank you, Your Excellency and remain blessed”.
