Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State Monday relieved the former Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie of his appointment as the Vice Chancellor of the Imo State University (IMSU).

Awuzie, who only got to know of his sack when his replacement, Prof. Adaobi Obasi, Commissioner for Local Government Affairs came to resume duty, was clearly taken aback by the development.
There are indications that his removal may be connected to the recent strike action embarked by the staff of the university.

Also, the Government House had alleged that the Vice Chancellor may be ‘sabotaging’ the free education programme of the governor following his repeated insistence that the governor was underfunding the university.

While this is believed to be a major reason for his ouster, a weightier ground for Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie’s apparently ignominious sack from office, is his alleged solidarity to Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu who is said to be one of those being considered as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).

Advertorials placed in two national newspapers by Awuzie congratulating Onu over the recent award of honorary doctorate degree to him by the Abia State University may have been his undoing.

Meanwhile, Governor Okorocha has dissolved the State Executive Council and appointed the former Chief of Staff, Sir Jude Ejiogu as the Secretary to the State Government, while also elevating his son-in-law and former Commissioner for Lands, Uche Nwosu, to the office of the Chief of Staff.
