Imo State  Governor Emeka Ihedioha has  fired   the  chief executives of  all statutory boards and parastatals in the state.

Also  sent packing  were all  heads of commissions, corporations  and agencies as well as political appointees.

The development came  less than 24 hours after  Ihedioha  suspended the chairmen of the 27 councils along with their deputies and councillors.

A statement  on Tuesday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Chibuike Onyeukwu, said, “The action is in the overriding public interest, and in order to give government an opportunity to execute the policies, programmes and agenda that brought it into power.

“Consequently, the chief executives are directed to hand  over the affairs of their various establishments to the most senior civil servants.”

Onyeukwu said the sacking of the council bosses was in accordance with the provisions of sections 4, 5, and 6 of the Local Government Administration Law 2019 (as amended) and S.73(3) of the Imo State Local Government Administration Law No 15 of 2000 (as amended).

 He said the governor had appointed interim management committees for the councils.

The statement also said Ihedioha had approved the removal of the chairman and members of the state Independent Electoral Commission.
