The Works commissioner’s sacking was contained in a press statement released by the media aide on electronics to the governor, Simeon Nwakaudu.

However, no reason was given for the governor’s decision to fire Harrison.

”The former commissioner has been directed to hand over to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works.”
