In the quest to settle the industrial action embarked on by the Labour Union in Imo State, the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, has fired the Commissioner for Labour and Productivity, Ford Ozumba.



The Commissioner for Information, Declan Emelumba, in a statement on Saturday, said the sacking was with immediate effect.

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

While there was no reason given for the sack, it may not be unconnected with the rift between the Nigeria Labour Congress and the governor.

The NLC had accused officials of the Uzodimma Government on Tuesday of disrupting its state congress and unleashing mayhem on workers exercising their rights to elect their leaders.

The NLC president, Joe Ajaero, in a statement on Tuesday, had declared the union’s indefinite industrial action in the state.
