Umahi Reappoints Sacked Aides, To Name Bridge After Jonathan
Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has reappointed 30 out of 64 Development Centre Coordinators sacked on Monday.
Recall that Umahi had directed the sack of the coordinators and mandated them to hand over all government properties in their possession to the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Kenneth Ugbala.
Swearing in the coordinators on Wednesday, Umahi said the essence of the appointment is to assist the transition committee in completing its assignment.
The governor also stated that he will assign the aides to different projects to assist in ensuring that the projects are completed, and urged them to take their job seriously to enable them to improve their skills.
Umahi said his administration would ensure the payment of severance allowance to the coordinators and the state executive council members.
He, therefore, assigned the newly appointed aides to the Ebonyi Airport, the Ring Road project, the Iyere Bridge, and all other government projects in the state.
While addressing journalists at the State Executive Council (SEC) Chambers New Government House, Umahi said a test flight will be conducted at the Ebonyi Airport in the next few days.
Umahi said he had invited President Muhammadu Buhari to the commissioning of the airport, adding that the airport remains one of the legacy projects in the state.
He said that the state government will also name the most complex bridge at Edda after President Goodluck Jonathan, adding that President Buhari will also commission the Iyere Bridge in Afikpo South Local Government Area.
