Mr Fred Obua, the Commissioner for Special Projects, Bayelsa State, reportedly slumped on Tuesday and was rushed out of a briefing to mark the sixth anniversary of Governor Seriake Dickson in office.
It was gathered that Obua, who was to make presentation at the inter-ministerial briefing suddenly slumped and was immediately rushed out of the Cultural Centre, Yenagoa, to an undisclosed private clinic.
The briefing was a prelude to the main event of the sixth anniversary of the Dickson administration which is scheduled to hold on February 14.
The Master of Ceremony (MC), Mrs Tari Oweifawari, had earlier announced that Obua would be making a presentation at the event but later informed the audience that the commissioner was “indisposed.”
According to Oweifawari, the Commissioner was having health challenges that won’t enable him speak at the briefing.
Reacting to the development, the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Daniel Iworiso-Markson told journalists that Obua could not wait to make his presentation due to his health.
“What do you want me to say, the man was rushed out because he has health challenge; he cannot wait for the presentation,” he told reporters when asked about Obua.
“He was to present but due to his health, he was rushed out.
“I don’t want this matter to be published and anyone who writes the story will be dealt with.”
