Umahi Reappoints Sacked Chief Press Secretary As SA Fruits, Food Management



Ebonyi State governor, David Umahi has reappointed his former and sacked Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor as Special Assistant on fruits/food market management.

The appointment of Uzor comes after he was sacked from the office of Chief Press Secretary to the state governor for reportedly misrepresenting him in the media.

Umahi, however, said his reason for reappointing his former CPS was because he wanted him (Uzor) to continue with his government as a result of his loyalty.

Naija News reports that the state governor made this known at the exco-chambers, Government House Abakaliki during the swearing-in of his Special Assistants.

In his words, the Ebonyi state governor said: “I needed you to continue with the team because I consider what happened as a mistake. southeast governors support livestock but it is not compulsory for every state.

“I want us to have a vegetable market, we can set up a place where we can store our vegetables and fruits. We will also build a cool room for our fish and by so doing, you get something to be doing there”.

Also inaugurated by the Ebonyi state government were: Mr. Emeka Andrew Nwankwo as Special Assistant to the Governor on ICT, Emmanuel Igwe as Special Assistant to the Governor on Parks Development.

Francis Nwaze who was the Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media is to become the Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media and Project Documentation, Naija News understands.
