Black Soot: Wike Sacks Commissioner For Environment.
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has sacked the State Commissioner for Environment, Dr Igbiks Tamuno.
This comes hours after the commission announced a Seminar conference on Black Soot and fresh air in Rivers State, scheduled to hold on Thursday.
Dez Mayorz Media gathered through Kelvin Ebiri, the Special Assistant (Media) to Rivers State Governor, that the Governor has directed the sacked Commissioner to submit all Government Documents and Property in his possession to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Environment.
Some of the reactions from the people on the sack of the commissioner said that the Rivers State Governor sacked the Commissioner due to his inconsistency in organizing monthly sanitation in Rivers State.
At the time of filing this report, no reason was given for Tamuno’s sacking.
Dez Mayorz Media correspondent learnt that the commissioner, who was presiding over a media conference on soot and air quality in the state, rushed out of the briefing and asked his Permanent Secretary to hold fort.
He might be sacked for embarking on Black soot program without the governor’s approval.
