- Bor’s former commissioner, Maker Lual in his office, August 24, 2012 (ST)
Agot was appointed for the second as an advisor on Land Utilization in June this year, before he was relieved from advisory post on September 10, the same day in which he was appointed as the commissioner.
The decrees from the governor’s office relieving Maker Lual and Agot Alier from their posts and reappointing Agot as Bor County Commissioner were announced simultaneously on Monday 10 September.
Attempts made by Sudan Tribune to reach both the new and former commissioner were unsuccessful.
MPs in the Jonglei State Legislative Assembly who represent Bor County said they were neutral about the move as the two men had equal abilities and skills.
The new commissioner is expected to be sworn in within the week.
