Mr. Emmanuel sacked his Commissioner for Education, Paul Udofia, whom he replaced with Victor Inoka, a professor.
The governor announced the creation of a new ministry, the Ministry of Labour, Productivity and Manpower Planning. Ibanga Akpabio, a lawyer, has been assigned to the new ministry.

Mr. Akpabio, who is the Senate Minority Leader, was present during the swearing-in of the new commissioners.
Although Governor Emmanuel did not give reason why he sacked the education commissioner, people who are closed to the government said Mr. Udofia’s performance was below average.
