Although no reason particular was given for the sack however, some sources say it may not be unconnected with the ongoing impasse between the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) led by Joe Ajaero and the Imo State Government.

The Eastern Updates had on Saturday reported that the Government of Imo State has claimed that it was currently in possession of classified information revealing that the President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, is in a secret political agreement with some collaborators to use his office to actualise the governorship ambition of his kinsman.

According to the government, the agreement was reached three weeks ago at Emekuku in Owerri North Local Government of Imo State where Ajaero accepted to work to destabilise the administration of Governor Hope Uzodinma.

According to the State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon Declan Emelumba, the kinsman in question who is a serial governorship aspirant spanning PDP and APGA, has already picked the form of one of the political parties for his ambition.

Emelumba said it was also at the meeting that George Ofoegbu Ugochukwu, another kinsman of Ajaero and the governorship aspirant, was selected as the arrowhead of the battle as new NLC chairman in the State.
