The Edo State Governor has disbanded the media crew attached to the Office of the Deputy Governor, with a directive to the Deputy Governor to henceforth request the Ministry of Communication and Orientation for media coverage of activities of his office.

A statement signed by the Commissioner of Information and Orientation of the State, Chris Osa Nehikhare explains that the directive followed the ugly and unfortunate incident that happened during the colloquium held to mark the 60th anniversary of Midwest Referendum celebration held at the Sir Victor Uwaifo Creative Hub and Soundstage, where some journalists, who claimed to be the media crew of the Deputy Governor, attempted to force their way into the hall where the governor and other invited dignitaries were already seated.

This act was contrary to the accredited protocol that had been established for the media coverage of the event.

The orchestrated and stage managed walkout and disruption is highly regrettable.
