Governor Wike sacks Commissioner of health for hosting an Event without his knowledge.

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has sacked the Commissioner of Health, Professor Princewill Chike for not seeking the State government’s approval to host the preliminary session of Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, MDCN, in Port Harcourt.

The Governor described the unilateral decision of the Commissioner to host the MDNC without the consent of the Rivers State government as most embarrassing.

Governor Wike announced the sack of Professor Chike when the chairman of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, Professor Abba Wasiri Hassan paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Monday.

The Governor explained that the Rivers State government never requested to host the preliminary session of Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria in Port Harcourt.  And stressed that the Commissioner of Health erred to have unilaterally scheduled to host the MDCN event at the same time when the State government is commissioning and flag off of projects.

“Frankly speaking, I have never seen an embarrassment like this in my life. Everybody knows that it is not my nature to bring people and you cannot attend to them or host. So, whoever has done this will suffer for it.
