Ngor Okpala IMC Chair appoints 42 aides

Mayor Nweke
  • Uzodimma’s appointees shun swearing-in event

The Interim Management Committee Chairman of Ngor Okpala Local Government, Chief Mayor Obinna Nweke, has appointed and sworn-in 42 aides with no clear definition of what their functions would be.

The  appointments, however has been criticized by stakeholders in the area, who wondered why such number of aides should be appointed when some of his members(IMC)  were lamenting non-payment of salaries, and poor welfare packages under his leadership .

Meanwhile, the swearing-in event which was held  at the council headquarters, Umuneke on Monday,22nd June, had in attendance only Dr Ethelbert Okere, DG, Imo Orientation Agency, as a government appointee. This is unusual ,considering the fact that the  LGA has many appointees in the  Shared Prosperity government of Sen. Hope Uzodimma.

However, many have interpreted their absent to mean not in support of the bizarre appointments done by IMC Chairman amidst fund scarcity.

It is vital to bring to bare that of the 27 IMC Chairmen  appointed by Governor  Uzodimma, only   Ngor Okpala IMC Chairman  made such  prohibitive appointments , more sadly in an LGA that is grappling with  numerous challenges  that are calling for urgent attention. Stakeholders  therefore call on Nweke to put on his thinking cap in order to come up with developmental ideas that could bring the LGA out of its developmental quagmire. They opined that he should work   proactively with members of the IMC  to deliver, rather than appoint numerous cum unnecessary aides in this critical period.
