Ernest Chinwo in Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has relieved the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Theophilus Odagme, of his appointment.

Briefing journalists after the state Executive Council meeting yesterday, the state Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr. Austin Tam-George, noted that the governor wished the former commissioner well in his future endeavour.

He, however, did not give reasons for the sack.
The state was awash two weeks with rumours of the dissolution of the state executive council by the governor.

Sources said the governor was not happy with the performance of most members of his cabinet whom THISDAY gathered were not keeping pace with the speed of the governor on project execution.
