Akwa Ibom Govt Sacks Victor Antai Over Insubordination
Following the noncompliance with policies of good governance, the State Government has dropped the Commissioner in charge of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Rt. Hon. Victor Antai, from the state Executive Council with immediate effect.
This was contained in a release signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Emmanuel Ekuwem, and made available to the newsmen in Uyo on Tuesday.
According to the release, Rt. Hon Antai had to be removed from the State Executive Council following his reluctance to comply with good governance processes of government.
With this development, Hon. Victor Antai has been mandated to handover to the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry before close of work tomorrow, Wednesday 8th August, 2018.
However, Victor Antai has perfected plans to decamp from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), as he was sited at the Akwa Ibom International Airport to welcome Sen Godswill Akpabio who recently resigned his office as the Senate Minority Leader, perfect his planned defection to the APC.
