Wike sacks commissioner days to dissolving cabinet
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has sacked the State Commissioner of Power, Hon Shedrach Chukwu days before dissolving his cabinet.
The reason for the sack of Chukwu is still sketchy but sources say it may not be unconnected to party matters.
The Governor in a statement by his Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu directed the sacked commissioner to submit all Government documents and property in his possession to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Power.
Meanwhile, Governor Wike has stated that his administration will focus on security and agriculture during his second term.
Addressing newsmen after projects’ inspection on Monday, Governor Wike added that his administration will also continue
to develop the education and health sectors.
Governor Wike said that his administration will be very decisive on stopping street trading in the state capital and its environs.
He said: “We believe that security is important and we believe that agriculture is key to making sure that we take our youths away from the streets.
“While we are continuing with education and health, security, agriculture and environmental sanitation will be given priority attention.
“Port Harcourt must not continue the way it is. People trading on the streets make Port Harcourt dirty. Cleaning up the city will be a special project. We will not allow Port Harcourt to continue to be dirty.”
Governor Wike inspected the Real Madrid Football Academy, Judges’ Quarters and the Fruit Garden Market Market.
