The commissioner for transport in Abia state Ekele Nwaohammuo, has been sacked by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.
He was sacked alongside the transition committee chairman of Umuneochi local government council, Mathew Ibe.
The governor also suspended Cherechi Nwogu, the transition committee chairman of Aba South local government area, and his Aba North counterpart, Chief Victor Ubani.
Chief of Staff to the governor, Dr Anthony Agbazuere disclosed this to journalists on Sunday, August 2.
No reason was however given for the sack.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo state has elected a former minister for commerce and industry, Charles Ugwuh, as its new chairman.
According to a report by Channels TV, Ugwuh emerged the new party supremo at a State Congress held on Saturday, August 1.
Ugwuh beat 11 other candidates after he was selected as a consensus candidate in the event held at a sports complex in the state capital, Owerri.
Initially, a poll had been planned among the 12 candidates but Ugwuh was selected to occupy the top job after consideration by party stakeholders.
However, the position of deputy chairman was up for a contest and the former acting chairman, Martins Ejiogu, won that election.
Like Ejiogu, other officials earned reelections. They are Ray Emeana as Secretary, Josiah Eze as Treasurer, Maria Mbakwe as Women Leader and Godson Nwaobasi as Auditor.
