The letter concluded, “His Excellency appreciates your tremendous contributions to the development of our dear State and wishes you success in your future endeavors. I thank you.”

This shock move has elicited a flurry of reactions from political observers and the public alike.

The governor, whose tenure has been marked by bold decisions and reforms, has yet to announce replacements for the now vacant positions.
