Hope Uzodinma Sacks Commissioner Over NLC Face-Off

The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, has sacked the Commissioner for Labour and Productivity, Ford Ozumba.

His sack is connected to the face-off between the labour union and the state government.

Ozumba's sack was conveyed by the state Commissioner for Information, Declan Emelumba on Saturday.

Uzodimma directed Ozumba to hand over all necessary documents to the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Labour and Productivity immediately.

No reason was given for the sack but some sources say it may not be unconnected with the ongoing impasse between the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) led by Joe Ajaero and the Imo State Government.

It was learned that Ozumba might have been a casualty of the election by the workers which was allegedly truncated by the agents of the state government.
