A media aide in the Delta State government, Atare Awin, has been sacked for publicly supporting Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).

Awin’s dismissal was announced on Tuesday in a letter from Anthony Onoriode Ofoni, Commissioner in charge of the Directorate of Project Monitoring and Audit, Delta State.

The supporters of Obi on October 1, the Independence Day anniversary, marched in solidarity support, shaking major cities in the country, including Delta State.

Awin had served as Ofoni’s Media Technical Aide.The letter read: “I wish
to inform you of your disengagement as Special Assistant Technical Aide to
my office as the Delta State Commissioner for Project
Monitoring/Audit.

“This decision became necessary owing to your well-publicized opinions on
the policies and programmrs of the Delta State Government and PDP at large, which are in contradiction to what
the State Government had achieved in the last 7 years.

“As a Commissioner and member of the State Executive Council, I wish
to distance myself from the opinions you expressed on your platforms, as it does
not represent my stand on the performance of Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa’s administration which has been well credited for the overall transformation in the State by way of giant strides in infrastructure, social development, job creation, wealth creation and the overall development
across the State.

“This disengagement is with immediate effect. I, therefore, wish you well
in your future political endeavours.”

Recall that the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa is the running mate of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the 2023 general elections.
