“I’m just coming from my village where I traveled for my son’s traditional marriage; I cannot confirm if it is cabinet reshuffle or outright dismissal, for now; I don’t have details on the development till I get to see my boss,” he said.
Meanwhile, Bekyu, while speaking with our correspondent on phone from Abuja, confirmed that he was appointed as the governor’s Chief Press Secretary to replace his erstwhile boss, Mijinyawa.
