In another bid to reshuffle his cabinet after 27 months in office, Governor Hope Uzodinma has on Thursday completely dissolved the 27-man Interim Management Committee Chairmen of Imo State.
Governor Hope Uzodinma had also made this known on Thursday after a closed-door meeting with them at the Sam Mbakwe Executive Chambers, Government House Owerri.
The governor had thanked them for the services they rendered in their different local government areas since their appointment about two and half years ago and for their loyalty.
He also reminded them of his resolve to hold the local government area election in Imo State any moment from now and the need for him to appoint Sole Administrators who will oversee the coming election. Governor Uzodimma had also told the dissolved IMC Chairmen that his government will not hesitate to engage their services in other areas they are found capable as APC members.
The Chairman of ALGON in Imo State, Mr Willie Okoliogo, who is also the Chairman of Oru West Council, on behalf of the IMC Chairmen, promised to remain loyal to the Governor and the APC.
In another report, Governor Hope Uzodinma has released a statement while blasting Nigerians for raising what he termed as some unnecessary controversy over the basic school certificates of the presidential flagbearer of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and some other candidates.
Governor Hope Uzodinma while reacting to the outcry had mentioned that if Independent Elecrtoral Council (INEC) actually boasts of a functional server, that information should be domiciled in the serr which could be reproduced for all to verify.
While buttressing his claims, he had also mentioned that for a person who served as governor of Lagos State for two terms and ran as a Senator and won, issues surrounding his primary or secondary school certificates shouldn not even arise and be a cause for concern.
The Imo State Governor, however, said given the timeline available for their candidate, INEC would be furnished with the necessary documents before the time elapses.
Uzodinma gave his views after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa Abuja on Tuesday, shortly before the President departed for Portugal for a state visit.
