Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has announced the dissolution of his media team with his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Godwin Adindu and other media aides directed to hand over government property in their possession to the Permanent Secretary of the Government House, Umuahia.
Ikpeazu’s Chief of Staff, Chief Chijioke Nwakodo announced the dissolution, yesterday. No reason was given for the dissolution but it might be connected to the handling of the visit of Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, to Abia on Wednesday.
Tambuwal’s visit to the state was not reported in the mainstream medi, in a visit where he commissioned some projects with the state governor. The situation reportedly angered the governor.
Adindu was among the first appointees of the Okezie Ikpeazu administration in June, 2015.
Wednesday event was actually the last straw that broke the camel’s back as several shortcomings of the team headed by the former Chief Press Secretary Mr Godwin Adindu were reportedly endured by the governor.
Journalists who wanted to cover the inauguration of some roads in Aba completed by Ikpeazu by Governor Tambuwal were not allowed to board the press bus as officials came with a list of those who should and should not board the vehicle
