Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has dissolved the State Executive Council.
A statement signed by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Electronic Media, Simeon Nwakaudu, saturday said the governor directed all former commissioners to handover to their respective Permanent Secretaries.
He also said Wike thanked the former commissioners for their service to the state and wished them well in their future endeavours.
The dissolution came about 48 hours after the governor sacked his Commissioner for Works, Mr. Bathuel Ifeanyichukwu Harrison, and 24 hours after the State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Dr. Austin Tam-George, resigned his appointment.
