Rivers state Governor – Ezenwo Nyesom Wike on Wednesday announced the sack of the Permanent Secretary, Mr. Sunny Okere with immediate effect for flouting and obstructing the enforcement of Covid-19 guidelines.
Governor Wike made the announcement in a state-wide broadcast.
Hitvibz gathered that the serving Permanent Secretary recieved his marching order while trying to bury his late wife.
According to Wike, his sack would serve as a lesson to all other public officers who may wish to be irresponsible.
“Burial ceremonies are also reportedly being conducted in clear breach of the 50 persons maximum attendance limit such that a serving Permanent Secretary had the temerity to chase away officials of the State Ministry of Health who went to enforce the established guidelines on public burials at Oyigbo,” he said.
