With about wo years in office, Wike is yet to re-appoint new commissioners.

After sacking the commissioners, Wike then explained that his decision was to ensure better performance of the machinery of government.

Wike stressed that the dissolution was carried out at the right time after due consultation with the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

“The dissolution was done to enable the machinery of government to move the state forward; this is when you know those who are loyal and those who are not loyal.

“There is no crack in government; we are working together. The dissolution was done in consultation with the leadership of PDP in the state,’’ Wike said.

Wike included that his administration will work with those who are loyal while those who are not loyal will be ejected.

“Those who are not loyal will be shown the way out, those who are loyal will come back. When you are going into another dispensation, you have to put things in order,” Wike said.

The governor, who also assured that his administration would continue to deliver on its electoral promises to the people, commended Bipi for his unwavering loyalty at all times.

“When people never gave us hope, Evans Bipi was reliable; Bipi is a very loyal and committed person,” he said.
