The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, on Wednesday, removed 20 out of his 28 commissioners.

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

It was earlier reported that the governor alleged two weeks ago that some of his appointees were sabotaging his administration.

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

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

It was gathered that the affected Commissioners were in their offices on Wednesday afternoon when the news broke.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Nwachukwu Oguwike, who confirmed the development to newsmen, said that the governor wished the affected appointees well in their future endeavours.

He said the reason was to infuse new blood and add more value to the system.

The state Commissioner for information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, also confirmed the sacking of the 20.
