Governor Okowa Fires Media Aide Over Social Media Posts

Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, has terminated the appointment of his Executive Assistant on Communication, Fred Oghenesivbe over a series of Facebook posts he allegedly made against the governor.

This was contained in a statement released by Patrick Ukah, Secretary to State Government, who stated that Governor Okowa was fed up with Oghenesivbe.

The statement reads: “I write to convey to you the displeasure of His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State, over your conduct with respect to the performance of your duties wherein there has been manifest recklessness and insubordination.

“As this trend can no longer be tolerated, I regret to inform you that your service as Executive Assistant, Communication, is no more required and your appointment is hereby terminated.

“Accordingly, I am to request that you take necessary steps to hand over all government properties in your possession to the Permanent Secretary, Directorate of Government House and Protocol forthwith”.

It was gathered that trouble started when Oghenesivbe took to social media to express his displeasure against Okowa. Although, he later took down the Facebook post.
