The state’s Commissioner for Information, Mr. Ini Ememobong, disclosed this in a statement at the end of state executive council meeting on Thursday in Uyo, the state capital.

He said five commissioners would be dropped from the cabinet and names of their replacements would be forwarded to the state House of Assembly for screening and confirmation in the coming days.
