The House further sacked the 27 elected chairmen of local government areas including their councilors after which they were ordered to hand over to the directors of administration in each of the councils.

Apart from these, the report said the Assembly also cancelled all appointments made by Okorocha into boards, agencies and inter-ministerial departments towards the end of his administration.

According to the lawmakers, the appointments were hurriedly made by the immediate past governor.

The state lawmakers also demanded for a review of all land allocations and land transactions in the state just as they want an inventory taken of all government assets and property with a view to ascertaining which of them are looted or vandalised by officials of the former administration.

The lawmakers also suspended the establishment of all tertiary institutions, as well as review all ownership structure and allocation of funds for their construction.

The House resolved that a panel be set up to review all debts and financial obligations of the state, investigate how they were incurred and whether recoveries can be made using the relevant agencies.
