Gov Oborevwori

Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon Elder Sheriff F.O. Oborevwori, has suspended the Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources, Hon. Omoun Perekebena Perez, and sent three others on compulsory leave until further notice. 

This action was taken following the outcome of the review of the implementation of the Greenhouse project by the State Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources. 

The Governor has constituted a seven-man committee chaired by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Kingsley Emu, to investigate the claims and perceived infractions related to the management of the scheme by the Ministry.

The government’s action is in no way a presumption of guilt but rather a necessary measure to uphold the sanctity of the investigative processes already instituted which is to ensure that the investigation is conducted without any potential for undue influence or bias.

To this effect, and according to a press release signed by Dr. Kingsley Emu, Secretary to the State Government, Messrs Bennett Ezon-Abode Agamah, Permanent Secretary; Engr. Oki Preowei Yintareke, Assistant Director, Agricultural Engineering and Mr. Gabriel Idiatacheko, Chief Accountan were also directed to proceed on compulsory leave until further notice in line with Civil Service extant rules.
