Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State who recently joined the All Progressives Congress has sacked the coordinators of Ivo and Echiele Development Centres, Okorie Daniel and Fabian Ovoke.
This is coming after Umahi dissolved members of Commissions and Boards, whose appointments are not guided by tenure.
Bibian Anekwe News had earlier reported that the Ebonyi State Governor on Tuesday dissolved boards of Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki, and Ebonyi State College of Education, Ikwo.
The development was disclosed by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Kenneth Ugbala, on the state-owned radio station, the Ebonyi Broadcasting Corporation, on Thursday.
Ugbala said, “His Excellency, the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr Dr David Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE, has approved the removal from office of the following Coordinators of Development Centers in Ebonyi State: Okorie Daniel of Ivo D/C; and Fabian Ivoke of Echiele D/C.”
“Consequently, the two former officials are directed to hand over all government property in their possession to the Secretary to the State Government/Coordinating Commissioner before the close of work on Thursday, 26th November, 2020.”
