Akwa Ibom LG Commissioner Has Not Been Sacked – My Submission
It is only in Akwa Ibom State that the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Charles Udoh, will sign a serious document on behalf of state government when the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) is still active.
It is procedurally wrong for the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, to issue out a Press release sacking his colleague- commissioner For Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Udo Ekpenyong, instead of the SSG or the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the Governor.
For those that will come here to argue otherwise, the simple question for them is; who signed the letter of appointment of the sacked commissioner and even that of the Information Commissioner and who issued out a Press release to that effect?
This particular press release would not have skipped my reaction, not when it has no date written on it.
So technically, I submit that the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr Udo Ekpenyong, has not been sacked from Governor Udom Emmanuel’s cabinet.
