The Imo State commissioner for Information, Mr. Declan Emelumba, have cleared the air over the supposed sack of the Commissioner for Justice, and Attorney General of Imo State, Barr. COC Akaolisa, stating that Akaolisa was not sacked with other commissioners as earlier assumed.
This was contained in a Press release signed by Emelumba, and reads as follows;
IMO STATE SPECIAL GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCEMENT
The Imo state government wishes to acknowledge that the Attorney General and commissioner for justice Barr Cyprian Okechukwu Charles Akaolisa was never among the commissioners dropped when the executive Council was dissolved a few weeks ago.
This error which occurred when I was announcing the commissioners retained by His Excellency the executive Governor of Imo State, Sen Hope Uzodimma, is highly regretted. I accept responsibility for this error.
Consequently, the government has directed that the Hon Attorney General and commissioner for justice, Barr C.O C Akaolisa should immediately resume his normal duties as he was never dropped from the state cabinet.
Hon Declan Emelumba
Commissioner for information and strategy
