David Umahi, Governor of Ebonyi, yesterday fired one of his many social media advisers, a Ndubuisi Goodluck Itumo, for serious violations bordering on incorrect public domain information.
Investigation could not be linked to the announcement of the governor’s trip to China Itumo
Ndubuisi’s sack was announced immediately after he posted on his Facebook page, alleging that the governor will spend 23 days in China for economic trip without getting clarifications from higher authorities.
The sack was contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government/Coordinating Commissioner, Dr. Ugbala Kenneth Igwe.
The statement reads: “The appointment of Mr. Ndubuisi Goodluck Itumo as Technical Assistant (TA) to the Governor of Ebonyi State on Social Media, is hereby terminated with immediate effect.
“This termination is caused by a serious violation bordering on misinformation to the public.
“Therefore, Mr Itumo was ordered to transfer all available state assets to Principal Secretary to the Governor before closure on Tuesday, October 29, 2019.”
