Imo governor fires 20 commissioners


Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, on Wednesday afternoon sacked 20 out of his 28 commissioners.

The eight commissioners not affected by the removal include those in charge of the ministries of health, youth and sports, tourism, information and strategy, women affairs, works, finance and technology.

The sacking of the 20 commissioners came one month after the governor reshuffled his cabinet and appointed new commissioners for finance and health.

Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Nwachuku Oguwike, confirmed the development, adding that the governor wished the affected appointees well in their future endeavours.
