Abia Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has dissolved the state Executive Council.

The dissolution was contained in a statement signed and posted on the state government’s official website by the Permanent Secretary, Government House, Onyii Wamah.

According to the Permanent Secretary, the governor retained his Chief of Staff, Sunny Nwakodo, and the Commissioner for Finance, Obinna Oriaku.

Also retained is the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General of the state, Umeh Kalu.

No reason was given for the sack of the Commissioners, Special Advisers as well as Senior Special Assistants and the SSG.

The statement also announced the appointment of three Special Advisers to the governor, including the former Commissioner for Works, Eziuche Ubani, who was appointed as the Special Adviser on Works and Project Monitoring.

Others were Emma Nwabuko and Solomon Ogunji, who were appointed as Special Advicer/Personal Secretary to the Governor and Special Adviser on Urban Renewal, respectively.
