Real Reason Imo Governor, Hope Uzodinma Sacked His Commissioner For Labour & Productivity.

Ford Ozumba.

Investigations by “Precious Eze’s Blog” has revealed some of the reasons behind the sack of the Commissioner for Labour and Productivity in Imo State, Chief Ford Ozumba  by the state governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma. This platform gathered that the sack may not be unconnected with the misunderstanding between the State Government and the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, which has to swallow the Commissioner for Labour and Productivity.

Information at our disposal has it that the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, led by Comrade Joe Ajaero, had declared a strike action in the State over alleged interference in their election. The Union claims that their Congress was disrupted by Security operatives on the orders of the State Government, and in the process, some workers were injured, but the Government vehemently denied any such interference, saying that Security men were there to maintain peace when a serious misunderstanding broke out between the two contestants to the office of the Chairman of the State NLC.

This, it was gathered led to the declaration of a strike action, without notice, for which the Government accuses Ajaero of ulterior motives. While the crisis brewed, and almost boiled over, the now sacked commissioner was away in Abuja where he accompanied the Senator – elect for Imo West,  Osita Izunaso, for the collection of his Certificate of Return, not on official duty or assignment, but to escort someone to Abuja.

The absence of Ford Ozumba infuriated the Governor when he heard that the Commissioner in charge of Labour in the state was not on duty to handle the bad situation such as what happened, so he had to sack him over negligence of duty.
