The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, on Wednesday afternoon, sacked 20 out of his 28 commissioners in a major shakeup of his cabinet.
The commissioners for Health, Youth and Sports, Tourism, Information and Strategy, Woman Affairs, Works, Finance and Technology were however not affected by sack.
The sack of the 20 commissioners came just about two weeks after Governor Uzodinma alleged that some of his appointees were moles sabotaging his administration, and just about a month after the governor reshuffled his cabinet and appointed new Commissioners for Finance and Health.
The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Nwachuku Oguwike, while confirming the development, said the governor wished the affected appointee well in their future endeavours.
“The news 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”, Oguwike said.
