Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has sacked four of his Technical Assistants for dereliction of duty.
The sack was contained in a statement signed by Dr. Kenneth Ugbala, Secretary to the State Government, on Saturday.
The affected officers, according to the statement, are Cletus Ogbonna, John Osi, Tochukwu Ali and Olachi Arua.
Ugbala said: “All affected officers are directed to hand over all government property in their possession to the SSG before the close of work on Monday, November 23.
“The officers are to comply strictly with this directive.”
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the governor had on November 20 sacked categories of aides from Ohaukwu LGA in order to “ensure greater participation of Ebonyi people in governance.”
The affected officials included all LGA development centre coordinators, executive assistants, senior technical assistants, technical assistants, liaison officers and management committee members of development centres.
