Ebonyi govt gives Umahi’s commissioners 2 weeks to quit quarters

The commissioners of previous governor David Umahi have been given two weeks by the Ebonyi administration to vacate the state-owned residences they are now residing in in Abakaliki.

The notice was released to newsmen on Thursday night and is contained in a statement signed by Prof. Grace Umezurike, Secretary to the State Government (SSG).

Umezurike, in the statement, said that the measure is in line with Gov. Francis Nwifuru’s directives.

“All residents of the commissioners’ quarters are hereby requested to vacate their premises.

‘This is to facilitate the entry of the new commissioners into the quarters.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused,” the statement indicated.

The statement urged the affected persons to take immediate note and comply accordingly.

NAN reports that in an apparent anticipation of the measure, Umahi had approved specified amounts of money for the commissioners to build or get new abodes.
