• An aide serving in the Delta State government, Atare Awin, who has been identified as promoting the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP Peter Obi has been sacked.

Though the letter conveying Awin’s sack did not mention her support for Obi as reason for the sack, it was believed that the public admiration for the Labour Party’s candidate has become a source or embarrassment.

The Governor of Delta State is the Presidential running mate in the Peoples Democratic Party.

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

Supporters of Obi nicknamed ‘Obidients’ had on October 1, the Independence day anniversary, marched in solidarity support, shaking major cities in the country, including Delta State.

Awin in one of her recent post on Facebook reads,”Nigerians honestly love Peter Obi.

“Independence Day was a case study.”

“Where is the Deputy Governor of Delta State.?
Just checking on him.

“Awin,until her sack was Media Technical Aide to Ofoni,”she wrote

In a letter obtained by NPO, the commissioner stated that Awin was fired for sharing counter opinions about Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration

“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 programs 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,” the letter read

“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”, it said.
