GOVERNOR of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, yesterday, sacked 20 out of his 28 commissioners.

  The eight commissioners not affected by the announcement are those of the Ministries of Health, Youth and Sports, Tourism, Information and Strategy, Woman Affairs, Works, Finance and Technology.

  The governor alleged two weeks ago that some of his appointees were moles sabotaging his administration.

  The sacking of the 20 commissioners came just one month after the governor reshuffled his cabinet and appointed new Commissioners for Finance and Health.

  The sacking came as a surprise to the affected appointees, as there was no sign that the announcement would be made.

  The affected commissioners were in their offices on Wednesday afternoon when the news broke.

  The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Nwachuku Oguwike, who confirmed the development said that it was done with the best intentions.

  “The report is correct. 20 commissioners were affected while eight were not affected. The reason is to infuse new blood and add more value to the governance system of the state, and His Excellency did so with the best intentions,” he said.
