Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has sacked all the members of the State Executive Council.
The sack of the Commissioners came 48 hours after he sacked his Commissioner for Works, Bathuel Harrison.
It is also coming less than 24 hours after Austin Tan-George, his Commissioner for Information and Communication tendered his resignation over alleged “high handedness by the Governor.”
Inside reports say Governor Wike was embarrassed and bitter about the action of Tam-George.
The dissolution of the members of the State Executive Council is contained in a statement by his Special Adviser on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu.
The statement reads, “The Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike has dissolved the State Executive Council.
“The governor directed all former commissioners to handover to their respective Permanent Secretaries.
“Governor Wike thanked the former commissioners for their service to the state and wished them well in their future endeavours.”
