Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State is set to reconstitute the State Executive Council about a week after a total dissolution of the cabinet.
Premium Politics reported that Wike, in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr Kelvin Ebiri, fired his Chief of Staff and Senior Special Assistants.
However, Channels TV on Friday reported that Wike’s move to reconstitute the council followed his Communication to the State Assembly for the screening and confirmation of three Commissioner nominees.
The Speaker of the Assembly, Ikuinyi-Owaji Ibani on Friday read Governor Wike’s letter during plenary.
The nominees include two former Commissioners on the immediate past cabinet and one former Special Adviser to Governor Wike.
They are former Commissioners Professor Zaccheaus Adangor (SAN), who was the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, and Mr Isaac Kamalu, who was the Commissioner for Finance.
The other nominee is Dr Alabo George-Kelly, who was Governor Wike’s Adviser on Special Project.
Isaac Kamalu and George-Kelly resigned their appointments before the dissolution of the cabinet to contest the Governorship Primary of the Peoples Democratic Party, in which they emerged as the first and second runners up, respectively.
