Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi has sacked four of his technical assistants for dereliction of duty.
The decision was announced via a statement signed by Kenneth Ugbala, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday.
The affected officers, according to the statement, include Cletus Ogbonna, John Osi, Tochukwu Ali and Olachi Arua.
“All affected officers are directed to handover all government property in their possession to the SSG before the close of work on Monday, Nov. 23.
