Wike Sacks Three LG Caretaker Committee Chairmen
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has approved the sacking of the Caretaker Committee chairmen of Phalga, Obio/Akpor, and Ikwerre local government areas of the state.
The governor’s decision was announced in a statement by his Special Assistant on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu.
According to the statement, the three caretaker committee chairmen were fired for collecting illegal revenues from companies.
This comes months after Governor Wike warned public officials and agencies against collecting revenues illegally from residents and businesses.
The governor had repeatedly warned that he would not hesitate to sack caretaker committee chairman and council workers who engage in the illegal collection of revenue.
