The governor also sacked all but one of his special advisers on Sunday, August 6.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com earlier reported that Governor Wike has announced that he has authentic evidence to sentence the immediate past governor, Rotimi Amaechi, to jail for fraud.
Wike's reaction follows Amaechi's allegation that the governor has perfected plans to present forged documents in court to nail him for fraud.
He accused the former governor who is now the minister of transportation, of diverting money realized from selling state turbine gas.
