Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, has terminated the appointment of his Executive Assistant (Communication), Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, citing issues relating to recklessness and insubordination.
This was contained in a statement released by Patrick Ukah, Secretary to State Government, who stated that Governor Okowa was ‘fed up with Oghenesivbe’.
The statement reads: “I write to convey to you the displeasure of His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State, over your conduct with respect to the performance of your duties wherein there has been manifest recklessness and insubordination.
“As this trend can no longer be tolerated, I regret to inform you that your service as Executive Assistant, Communication, is no more required and your appointment is hereby terminated.
“Accordingly, I am to request that you take necessary steps to hand over all government properties in your possession to the Permanent Secretary, Directorate of Government House and Protocol forthwith”.
Oghenesivbe’s travails followed his recent outburst against the governor on Facebook expressing his alleged poor working conditions as Executive Assistant (Communication), which he later deleted.
