The Governor of Rivers State, Ben Ayade, on Tuesday, appointed a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Cletus Obun, as Special Adviser, Strategic Communications.

Ita said, “The state Governor, His Excellency, Ben Ayade, has approved the following appointments: Victor Omaga Odo JP, State Chairman, Universal Basic Education Board; Mr Cletus Obun, Special Adviser, Strategic Communications, and Mrs Bukie Okangbe, Senior Special Assistant, New Media.”
