The cabinet of the deposed Governor of Bayelsa State on Saturday recorded its first casualty following the sacking of the Secretary to the State Government, Mr.
Ekeuwei was relieved of his appointment by the acting Governor of the state, Mr. Nestor Binabo, who took over from Sylva after a Supreme Court verdict sacked five governors on Friday.
Binabo in a statement signed by the Assistant Director of Information, Mr. Chris Odi, announced Prof. Millionaire Abowei as the new SSG.
The statement which was made available to our correspondent in Yenagoa directed the former SSG to hand over government property in his possession to the most senior permanent secretary in the Governor’s Office.
The statement also announced the appointment of a new Chief of Staff, Mr.
Austin Adigio and Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Ebi Avi.
