The governor described the statement by Uzor as highly embarrassing and regrettable.
“I just directed the termination of the appointment of my CPS for misrepresenting me and south east governors on National livestock transformation plan programme of which I had issued press statement on behalf of NEC after our last NEC meeting.
“My former CPS was never authorized to talk to the press on the matter.

“His statement is so embarrassing and regrettable.
As at the time of filing this report, the sacked CPS had handed over to his Principal Secretary, Clement Nweke.
