No official reason was given for the governor’s action; however sources have linked the sack to the inefficiency experienced during the recent visit of Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state.
The notice of the sack was contained in a statement issued by the chief of staff to the governor, Chief Chijioke Nwakodo.
It was also gathered that there has been hostility amongst members of the media team since Governor Ikpeazu’s assumption into office.
The sacked media team was headed by Godwin Adindu, the chief press secretary to the governor.
He was asked to hand over government property in their possession to the permanent secretary, government house, Umuahia.
