The Vice-Chancellor of the Rivers State University, Prof. Blessing Didia, has been kicked out of office by the Rivers State government.

A statement posted on Governor Nyesom Wike’s Twitter handle said the decision was with "immediate effect".

Also given the boot was the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) of the institution, Prof. Magnus Oruwari.

The university’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics), Professor Opuenebo Owei, was appointed as the acting vice-chancellor. 

Governor Wike also suspended the ongoing employment exercise at the institution.

He, thereafter, set up a committee to investigate the exercise and submit its report in two weeks.
