Fubara Appoints Assembly Loyalist, Edison Ehie as Chief of Staff

Rivers State governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has appointed ex-factional speaker and one of his loyalists in the State House of Assembly, Edison Ehie, as his Chief of Staff.

Ehie was named Chief of Staff in a statement released late Sunday night by Secretary to the Rivers State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo.

The SSG also announced the appointment of five others as Special Advisers.

The new Special Advisers included Darlington Oji, who resigned as the Chief of Staff to the Chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area, Samuel Nwanosike, in the wake of the political crisis in Rivers State; Solomon Abel-Eke, the immediate past chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area where former governor, Wike, comes from.

Others are Prince Ohia, immediate past commissioner for Youths Development; Aminayanasam Fiberesima and Deeyah Bariene.

The statement said the new appointees would be sworn-in by Governor Fubara at the State Executive Council Chambers by 11:00 am on Monday.
