Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri swore in two new Special Advisers on Wednesday.
He warned his political appointees against early politicking ahead of the 2023 general elections, warning that if they did, he would not hesitate to fire them.
Diri issued the warning before to the start of the weekly State Executive Council meeting in Yenagoa’s Government House.
Alabo Ozubide (Legal Matters) and Onumah Johnson were among those sworn in (Non-Indigenes).
This was contained in a statement on Wednesday titled, ‘Resign or be sacked, Gov Diri warns appointees over early politicking,’ issued by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Daniel Alabrah.
The statement quoted him as saying, “I find it very difficult to believe that appointees in this government have already started open politicking.
“Yes, it is the constitutional right of anybody to contest but even the Bible tells us that there is time for everything. At this time, we are trying to stamp our feet to meet up our campaign promises to our people.
“I hereby caution all those involved to immediately withdraw. If you are prepared to continue with this government, you must listen to the music of this administration. We are not prepared to start politicking this year.”
