Udom Dissolves Cabinet
BEVERLY HILLS, October 15, (THEWILL) – Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom State Saturday dissolved the State Executive Council (EXCO), directing Commissioners to hand over to the Permanent Secretaries in their ministries.
Most of the Commissioners in Udom's cabinet also served in the administration of former Governor, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
A statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Etekamba Umoren, which gave no reason for the dissolution, said: “The Governor expresses his deep and profound appreciation for the contributions of the EXCO members to the development of the state, and wishes them success in their future endeavours.”
Udom, a former banker and greenhorn in politics, was elected governor in 2015 with the backing of Akpabio and his political structure.
