Information available to 247ureports.com through sources close to the activities within the Government House in Awka, Anambra State indicate that the Executive Governor of Anambra State may be in preps for a cabinet reshuffle and/or dissolution of his cabinet on Wednesday May 2, 2012 . This is as credible information revealed that Governor Peter Obi had on Sunday April 29, 2012 requested from each member of his cabinet “a report card” of their term in service – and submit to the Governor’s office an up to date activities of their various portfolios.

According to information gathered from political players in Awka, the Governor is suspected to be orchestrating a silent dissolution of the cabinet in an effort to avoid raising of unnecessary feathers and/or dust. A source notes that the Governor had specifically told members of his cabinet to prepare a self evaluation of their accomplishments at their respective offices. The source added that the demand for a self evaluation report was actually a polite demand to prepare a “handover note”. The demand was sent by text messages by some of the governor’s aide to the cabinet members.

Independent inquiry by our correspondent in Awka indicated that the members of the cabinet were unwilling to speak on the demand made by the Governor. However, the activities within the various ministries showed that something was cooking behind the scene. A majority of the Commissioners visited were not present at their seats – and the Exco-Meeting which normally holds on Monday of every week, did not hold – as the Governor was away on a trip to the federal capital.

It is suspected that the pending dissolution of the cabinet may be connected to the ongoing misunderstanding brewing between the Governor and the Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance [APGA], Chief Victor Umeh. Sources indicate that the Governor is working on removing cabinet members who have shown loyalty to the APGA Chairman – against the Governor. As gathered, the APGA Chairman had been given many cabinet slots to fill. The persons brought by the APGA Chairman are said to be the ones to face a possible discharge by the Governor by Wednesday May 2, 2012. But some of the Governor’s men have denied that the governor’s demand for a hand over note concerns the ongoing squabble.
