The Association of Local Government Vice Chairmen of Nigeria has announced that it has delisted Emeka Ihedioha of Imo state from the list of best performing governors.
ALCOVC said its decision on Ihedioha follows the governors dissolution of local government chairmen in the state, which it argues were democratically elected.
Lawrence Onuchukwu, national chairman of the association, said in Abuja that the governor and others who sack elected council chairmen will be not be recognised in the 2019 award.
Onuchukwu said Ihedioha's name was dropped after his activities were reviewed.
“They (a committee) came up with few names, but we set up another committee at our national level to look at the names they came up with.
"And one of the names they listed was Emeka Ihedioha, the governor of Imo state, but after due consultations, his name was completely dropped because he is one of those who are the enemies of the local people," he said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the Imo government recently commenced the employment of 4,000 teachers into the state's civil service.
This was revealed via a letter sent to the executive secretary, Secondary Education Management Board (SEMB), Oby Anyakudo, by the principal secretary to the governor, TUC Nwokonkwo.
The letter dated Friday, October 18, was in reference to an earlier letter by the SEMB asking for the governor's approval to go ahead with the recruitment exercise.
