Ebonyi’s state governor, chief David Umahi, re-named his former chief press secretary, Emmanuel Uzor, who was recently fired. However, he is now a special assistant in the management of the fruit / food market.
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that Umahi said his reason for re-naming his former CPS was because he wanted him (Uzor) to continue his government as a result of his loyalty.
The governor announced this in the chambers of exco, Government House Abakaliki during the swearing in of his Special Assistants.
He said: “I needed you to continue with the team because I consider what happened as a mistake.” Southeast governors support livestock, but it is not mandatory for all states.
“I want us to have a vegetable market, we can establish a place where we can store our vegetables and fruits. We will also build a fresh room for our fish and in doing so, you will get something to do there.”
Mr. Emeka Andrew Nwankwo was also introduced as Special Assistant to the Governor in ICT.
Umahi also made a minor reorganization that includes Mr. Emmanuel Igwe, who was previously Special Assistant to the Governor in Project Documentation but is now reassigned as Special Assistant to the Governor in Park Development.
Also, Mr. Francis Nwaze, who was the Special Assistant to the Governor in New Media, will become the Special Assistant to the Governor in New Media and Project Documentation.
