The Ebonyi State Government has declared today, Wednesday, June 23 2021, as public holiday in honour of two departed commissioners.
Governor Dave Umahi in a statement on Tuesday signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Francis Nwaze, expressed sadness over the losses.
Umahi had last month lost his Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development, Engr Uche Ukah.
Yesterday, the Governor announced the sudden departure of the Commissioner for Infrastructure for Concession, Engr. Fidelis Nweze, as a result of a ghastly motor accident which occurred on Tuesday, June 22, 2021.
Parts of the statement reads: “The affected former EXCO members are Engr. Fidelis Nweze, former Commissioner for Infrastructure for Concession and Engr. Uche Okah, former Commissioner for Housing and urban development.
“Consequently, the Governor has directed that all offices and markets should be closed while all flags are to fly at half mast on Wednesday, June 23rd 2021 across the State
“The Governor also directed all Government officials to proceed on fasting to seek the face of God in the Affairs of the State While CAN is charged to organize Prayers to break the fast by 4pm at Christian Ecumenical Centre every day, starting from Wednesday, June 23 to Saturday, June 26, 2021
“All Government officials are enjoined to participate in all the activities. The Governor prays for peaceful repose of the souls of the fallen former EXCO members.”
