Wike sacks Works Commissioner

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezen­wo Wike, has relieved the State Commis­sioner of Works, Mr Bathuel Harrison, of his appointment with immediate effect.

In a statement signed by the Special Assistant on Media, Simeon Nwakudu, he said the former Com­missioner has been directed to hand over to the Permanent Sec­retary in the ministry.

Meanwhile, this month’s sanitation exercise will hold on Saturday, June 24, 2017, across the vari­ous local government areas of the state.

As usual, human and vehicular move­ments will be restrict­ed during the period of the sanitation exer­cise from 7am–10am.

Bro Felix Obuah, who announced the sanitation exercise in a statement in Port Harcourt, called on all residents of the state capital to fully participate in the ex­ercise holding across the 23 local govern­ment areas of the state.

Bro Obuah called on security agencies to effectively enforce the restriction of movement order be­tween the stipulated hours of 7am to 10am, except those on es­sential duties, who are also advised to collect Exemption Permit from the Agency.

The RIWAMA Sole Administrator urged owners of trucks (in­dividuals and cooper­ate organisations) to make available their trucks for the evac­uation of waste that would be generated as a result of the sanita­tion exercise.
