Okorocha sacks Ohaji/Egbema LG boss, accuses him of incompetence


OWERRI –  Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has sacked the Transition Committee Chairman of Ohaji/Egbema local council area, Mr. Greg Anyanwu, for alleged gross incompetence.

Anyanwu’s sack was effected by Okorocha during a meeting he held to take stock of road projects completed in the 27 local government areas, with a view to making payment to benefitting contracting firms.

Trouble started when the member representing Ohaji/Egbema state constituency in the House of Assembly, Chief Luke Chukwu, gave a contrary report from that of Anyanwu.

Irked by the reports he received on the spot from some of his appointees about the local council boss, Governor Okorocha announced his immediate sack.

Meanwhile, serious lobbying had since commenced for the replacement of the sacked transition committee chairman but as at the time of going to press, the council chairman’s seat remained vacant.
