The PS also stated that the Governor “wishes Dr. Ajumbe well in his future endeavours,” and directed him to handover all government property in his possession to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information, Public Utilities and Tourism. While the government statement stated that Okorocha equally relieved Okpalaeke of his appointment, it also directed him to handover to the most senior officer in that establishment.
Also removed are Obinna Nshirim as Transition Committee Chairman, Ikeduru local government and Justus Ojika, Special Assistant to the Governor on Niger Delta Affairs. “The Governor also wishes them well in their future undertakings and directs them to handover all government property appropriately,“ Obi said.
