Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has ordered the immediate sack of the General Manager of Rivers State Broadcasting Corporation, Ms Mediline Tador.
In a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Sir Opunabo Inko-Tariah, Mr Sampson Fiberisima, takes over immediately, as the General Manager of the Corporation.
Fibresima was the zonal Manager of Silverbird Television and Radio Port Harcourt until he resigned a few months ago.No reason has been given for the sack of Ms Tador.
Tador was once Commissioner for Information in the state. She was also once an Editor with the defunct Daily Times, Lagos.
The new GM’s wife, Mrs Florence Fiberisima of the Ministry of Justice, was last week appointed Secretary of Judicial Commission of Inquiry that would investigate the immediate past Governor Chibuike Amaechi.
Sampson Fiberisima’s stint in the Silverbird Radio and Television saw a phenomenal growth of the broadcasting station, making the toast of its listeners in Rivers and environs.
The reason for his resignation some months ago is unclear.
However, he is expected to bring his wealth of experience in the private broadcasting station to bear while in Radio Rivers, which is wholly owned by the state government.
