Akwa Ibom Governor, Udom Emmanuel, has dissolved the State Executive Council, SEC.
The development contained in a statement issued Saturday evening by the Secretary to the State Government, Etekamba Umoren, said the sack takes immediate effect.
No reason was given for the decision.
The statement, however, directed the commissioners to hand over to the permanent secretaries in their ministries.
It said, “The Governor expresses his deep and profound appreciation for the contributions of the EXCO members to the development of the state, and wishes them success in their future endeavours.”
Most of the sacked commissioners were inherited from the government of former Governor, Godswill Akpabio.
Akpabio is the Senator, representing Akwa Ibom North-West Senatorial District and current Senate Minority leader.
Meanwhile, Samuel Ikon, one of Akwa Ibom representatives in the lower chamber of the National Assembly, along with Terse Mark-Gbillah (Benue); and Mohammed Garba-Gololo (Bauchi), are set to sue American government over allegations of soliciting for sex.
