The Court of Appeal sitting in Owerri, Imo state, this morning shamed Gov. Rochas Okorocha as it reinstated all LG chairmen and councilors sacked by the governor last year.
The Court held that the governor lacked the powers to sack an elected government.
Subsequently, Rochas has had to swallow the bitter pill to remove all his political associates he had put in office as Transition Chairman.
The reinstated LG chairmen and their councilors are to resume work at their various council headquarters starting tomorrow morning. It is recalled that a High Court had held that the governor’s action was illegal. But the judge who made the observation fell short of reinstating the chairmen.
