    Jidda instructed that all commissioner, special advisers, senior special assistant and special assistant currently serving the administration are forthwith relieved of their jobs.

    All commissioners were asked to handover the affairs of their ministries to their respective permanent secretaries as well as return their official vehicles and other government properties in their possession.
