Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor of Delta State, has dissolved the State Executive Council.
Charles Aniagwu, the immediate past commissioner for information, disclosed this after the State Executive Council meeting presided by the governor in Asaba, the state capital, on Tuesday.
According to Aniagwu, Governor Okowa directed all the commissioners to hand over to the permanent secretaries in various ministries.
He said: “Today, Governor Okowa dissolved the State Executive Council and directed all the Commissioners to hand over to the permanent secretaries.
“Also, all SSAs have been directed to hand over to the next senior officials in their various offices. The dissolution of the EXCO today has nothing to do with the 2023 election.
“Okowa believes that there are other Deltans who can also make useful contributors to ensure nothing stops his stronger Delta agenda.”
Aniagwu also stated that the state government has dismissed one Bernard Onomovo, a servant working in the ministry of finance as a result of the illegal inclusion of fictitious names into the state’s payroll.
