Gov Amaechi Sacks PDP Deputy National Chairman, Uche Secondus
Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi, has approved the removal of the national deputy chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus, as representative of the state government on the board of Port Harcourt Flour Mills Limited and has nominated Marcus Nle Eji to replace him as chairman of the board.
Amaechi also endorsed the replacement of Jane Nna Chinwa with Francis Elechi as a member.
The changes were announced in a statement signed by the commissioner for commerce and industry, Chuma Chinye.Though the state government gave no reason for the development, it might be connected with the on-going political crisis in the state, as both Secondus and Chinwa belong to the camp of the supervising minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, Amaechi’s chief opponent.
The statement directed the ministries of finance, commerce, and Industry to ensure that necessary steps were taken without delay to formalise the change.
