Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has sacked 20 out of his 28 commissioners.

The latest development is coming a month after the governor reshuffled his cabinet.

It was gathered that the affected commissioners were in their offices, on Wednesday afternoon, when they were sacked by the governor.

It would be recalled that Uzodinma had alleged two weeks ago that some of his appointees were moles sabotaging his administration.

The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Nwachuku Oguwike confirmed the sacking of the commissioners. He noted that the governor wished them well in their future endeavours.

He said: “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.”

The eight commissioners not sacked by the governor include the ministries of Health, Youth and Sports, Tourism, Information and Strategy, Woman Affairs, Works, Finance, and Technology.
