Bayelsa State governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson has been reported to have  sacked his Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Francis Egele and six other commissioners.

Nawa for Nigerian jobs ooo, this firing of a thing is getting too much. Is there an employment tribunal at all? Where do sacked Govt officials go for complaints (eventho they are not any better).  Job security is one of my greatest fears in Nigeria. You can get fired by your employer and that it it?  I hope all is for the betterment of the concerned states, not politically centred… 🙂
