A federal High court in Owerri, the Imo State capital, south-east Nigeria on Wednesday, ordered the governor of the state, Hope Uzodinma, to reinstate sacked chairmen and councillors of the 27 Local Government Areas who the administration of the ousted governor, Emeka Ihedioha sacked.
The LGA chairmen and councillors were elected in 2018 during the administration of a former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha.
Ihedioha had through the state House of Assembly sacked the LGAbosses and councillors, while Uzodinma did uphold the policy.
Justice Tijani Regime who delivered the judgment described the Interim Management Committee chairmen appointed by the state governor as ghost workers before the law.
Regime, therefore, ordered the sacked chairmen and councillors to return to the office immediately.
