Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has announced the sacking of all board members and the dissolution of all commissions in the state with immediate effect.

Naija News reports that he announced this during his 2021 anniversary day address to the people of the state.

The Ebonyi governor also sacked management Committee members, liaison officers and local government advisory committee at all the 64 local government areas and 171 wards in the state.

Also affected by the sack are all the Executive Assistants, Technical Assistants and Senior Technical Assistants to the governor.

Giving reasons, Umahi said the sack became necessary because some of the appointees have sympathy for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He also stated that the sack is to enable those who want to contest the local government elections next year and the All Progressive Congress(APC) congress to take part in the elections.

The governor however noted that some statutory boards are not affected by the dissolution.

They include the Judiciary Service Commission, House of Assembly Service Commission, Civil Service Commission, Local Government Service Commission and Ebonyi State Independent Electoral Commission (EBSIEC).

Recall that Umahi had on Friday sacked 83 members of the state executive council.
