Okowa sacks aide Oghenesivbe for insubordination

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has terminated the appointment of Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, his executive assistant on Communications, over his insubordination.

In a letter signed on Thursday by the Secretary to the State Government, Chief Patrick Ukah, the governor said the sack is with immediate effect as he was ‘fed up with Oghenesivbe’.

Okowa said Oghenesivbe’s appointment was terminated over his abysmal performance in office as well as his recklessness and insubordination.

The governor asked the aide to hand over all government properties in his possession to the Permanent Secretary, Directorate of Government House and Protocol.

The letter reads: “I write to convey to you the displeasure of His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State, over your conduct with respect to the performance of your duties wherein there has been manifest recklessness and insubordination.

“Accordingly, I am to request that you take necessary steps to hand over all government properties in your possession to the Permanent Secretary, Directorate of Government House and Protocol forthwith”.
