Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has sacked his Senior Special Assistant on protocol matters, Joe Akpa .
A statement by Simeon Nwakaudu, the special assistant to the Rivers State Governor on Electronic Media, said that the governor wished Mr. Akpa well in his future endeavours.
No reason was given for the sack.
Mr. Akpa, a former director in the office of the state’s secretary to government, was appointed senior special assistant on August 3, 2015, and was charged with with arranging Mr. Wike’s appointments and engagements.
The sack of the aide came about a month after the governor recalled four commissioners earlier suspended from office.
The commissioners recalled by the governor were John Bazia, Chieftaincy Affairs; Tonye Briggs-Oniyide; Culture and Tourism; Fred Kpakol, Finance and Boma Iyaye, Sports.
