The order, announced over the state-owned 97.5 FM , gave no reason as to why Louis Lobong took the decision.

Charles Atul Gabriel, the state secretary general, Claudio Suleiman Liling, the peace and security advisor as well as commissioner of headquarters, Marko Akio Ukinbuil and his Magwi county counterpart, Francis Okech Oteka were the four sacked.

Governor Lobong, in the decree, hailed the four officials for the fruitful services they rendered to the community during their tenure in office.

Meanwhile, the governor also appointed Ben Kingston Loduk, as the new Magwi county commissioner, while ex-commissioner Ukinbul will steer the newly-created youth and sports ministry.

Lobong called on citizens in the state to support his actions, saying the new changes would enhance effective services delivery in the state.

More appointments are, however, expected in coming days, given that positions for the state secretary general, cabinet and parliamentary affairs ministry, and commissioner for the headquarters, were unoccupied.

    Hmmhmm the truth is coming to the surface now. The fact that has been on the top list of the state rumors is that the governor is denying employing the indigenous of the statewhile giving their quota to Dinkas inorder to keep him in power. So these sacked officials have been sacked because they raised the issue of federalism without fear or favor..
