Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State on Wednesday suspended four commissioners, the Head of Service and Special Adviser on Lands for three months.
Special Assistant to the Governor on Electronic Media Simeon Nwakaudu, announced this in a statement in Port Harcourt.
The governor did not, however, state the reason for the suspension in the statement.
According to Nwakaudu, the affected commissioners are Dr John Bazia, Chieftaincy Affairs, Mrs Tonye Briggs-Oniyide; Culture and Tourism, Fred Kpakol; Finance and Mr Boma Iyaye; Sports.
He said the Head of Service, Mr Rufus Godwin and Mr Anugbun Onuoha, Special Adviser on Lands were also affected by the suspension.
This is not the first time the Governor has suspended his commissioners of political aides and later recall them.
However, Dr Fred Kpakol is perhaps serving is having a second trip into the tortuous journey of suspension.
