Uzodimma recalls heads of three government’s agencies in Imo

Uzodimma recalls heads of three government’s agencies in Imo

Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has reinstated the heads of Imo State Primary Healthcare Development Agency (IMSPHCDA), Imo State Health Insurance Agency (ISHIA) and Imo State Sports Commission (ISSC)

BusinessDay reports that heads of the three State Government’s Agencies were relieved of their duties few days after the governor was sworn-in for the second tenure in January.

They are Maria Joannes Uzoma, a reverend sister for IMSPHCDA, Uche Ewelike for ISHIA and Eleazer Onyewuchi Ogbonna for ISSC.

Recall that the IMSPHCDA, ISHIA and ISSC were parts of the Government Parastatals, Agencies, Extra-Ministerial Departments, Commissions and Development Centres, which were dissolved by the State Government recently.

Governor Uzodinma, who directed that the heads of the affected Agencies were to be reinstated immediately, however, noted that IMSPHCDA, ISHIA and ISSC, were ab initio, exempted from the earlier dissolution.

The governor has therefore urged the general public and development partners in particular, to ignore the earlier dissolution notification and continue to relate and work with them, just as he pledged Government’s continued support to the bodies so as to realise their set goals.
