Wild jubilation greeted the Ministry of Culture and Tourism on Wednesday following the sack of the Commissioner, Rt. Hon. Victor Antai.
The workers expressed joy that the state government eventually granted their prayers and demand for the removal of Rt. Hon. Antai, alleging that he had been a stumbling block for them since his emergence as Commissioner in the Ministry in 2016.
Workers and unions operating at the Le Meridien Hotels & Golf Resort also joined in the jubilation.
Antai had to be removed from the state executive council following his reluctance to comply with good governance processes of government.
It could be recalled that Nollywood actress and Special Assistant to the Governor on Tourism, Ini Edo, had in 2017, accused the former Commissioner of hijacking her idea of “Ibom Fest” and renaming it as “Orange September”, which led to the arrest of her two consultants, Joseph Utin and Ubong Ekpe.
