Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma has approved the constitution of Interim Management Committees for the 27 LGAs in the state.

Similarly, Mr. Kingsley Mbamara, the University Bursar and the Registrar, Mrs. Rosekate Ogbu were replaced by Dr. O. J. E Anyanwu and Dr. Julius Uzoma Osuagwu as the new Bursar and Registrar respectively in acting capacity.

Their removal letters, according to reports, were signed by the state Commissioner for Education, Prof. B. T. O Ikegwuoha.
