Cabinet Shake-up: Imo State governor sacks all his commissioners, including top officials

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has dismissed his entire cabinet members in what appears to be a strategic bid to restrengthen his administration.

The governor on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, sacked his state executive council and 27 local government transition committees with immediate effect.
 
In a statement by the Principal Secretary to the Governor, Pascal Obi,  the Governor ordered the affected commissioners and transition committees to hand over to permanent secretaries or the most senior director in their ministries.

According to him, the secretary to the government, the chief of staff, chairmen and members of statutory commissions such as ISEC, Civil Service Commission, local government service commission were not affected.

"Also not affected in the cabinet shake-up are the state universal basic education board, the judicial service commission, and the house of assembly service commission.

"The governor also dissolved the 27 transition committees (TC) of the 27 local government areas in the state.

"The transition committee (TC) chairmen are advised to hand over to the directors of administration and general services of their respective council areas.

"The governor appreciates the contributions of the TC chairmen to the success of the rescue mission and wishes them well in their future endeavours."

Rochas who didn't disclose his reason for the action took a similar decision in 2013 when he sacked members of the state execute council mid-way into their weekly meeting, just two years after he became the governor of Imo State.
