An Assistant Director in the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Georgewill Otto, was redeployed to Rivers State Small Town and Rural Water Supply Agency.

The memo said the postings were of immediate effect and further directed the affected officers to complete the handover procedures to the most senior officers in their departments.
