The Ebonyi State governor, Chief David Umahi sacked one of his Technical Assistants, Mr. Ndubuisi Goodluck Itumo for misleading the public with false information.
Mr. Ndubuisi was sacked immediately after he posted on his Facebook page that the governor traveled to China for an economic trip and will be spending 23 days. He posted without getting clarifications from his higher authorities.
The sack was contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government 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.
The termination is on grounds of gross misconduct bordering on misinformation to the public.
Consequently, Mr. Itumo is directed to handover all government property in his possession to the Principal Secretary to the Governor before the close of work on Tuesday 29th October, 2019.”
