Uneasy calm has gripped the 27 Interim Management Committee chairmen of LGAs serving in Senator Hope Uzodinma-led administration, following the announcement by the Governor to conduct local government council elections soon.
The Governor, in a meeting with members of Camphope Political group on Friday, said there would be serious changes in the local government which would include replacing the IMCs with new ones pending the conduct of the LGA council elections.
Meanwhile, there is palpable tension among the chairmen as most of them had intensified lobbying in order to be reappointed.
Sources close to Government House revealed that the Governor is currently making consultations to access the performance of the IMCs in order to know who would be reconsidered for reappointment.
It would be recalled that the IMCs were inaugurated in March 2020 and have stayed more than a year.
