Ikpeazu sacks media team

By Anayo Okoli.
UMUAHIA-ABIA State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has sacked his entire media team. No reason was however given by the sack which was announced by the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Chief Chijioke Nwakodo.


But sources linked the sack of the over bloated media team to the shoddy handling of the visit of the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, to the state on Wednesday where he commissioned some road projects and that the Ikpeazu endured several shortcomings of the team were said to have been which had caused the government serious embarrassment.

The sacked media team, including the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Godwin Adindu, was asked to hand over government property in their possession to the Permanent Secretary, Government House, Umuahia.

Since his assumption of office, the Governor’s media team, comprising of about 15 persons never worked as a team. There has been animosity among them.

Worse still, there was never a centralized communication pattern as even the personal assistant to the Governor also issues Press Statements which at times conflicts with the ones from the media team.
