The Akwa Ibom governor, Udom Emmanuel, has dissolved the State Executive Council. A statement issued on Saturday evening by the Secretary to the State Government, Etekamba Umoren, said the commissioners were to hand over to the permanent secretaries in their ministries. No reason was given for the decision.
The statement said, “The Governor expresses his deep and profound appreciation for the contributions of the EXCO members to the development of the state, and wishes them success in their future endeavours.”
Most of the sacked commissioners were inherited from the government of former Governor Godswill Akpabio.
