Appointees of the present administration have not stopped to grudge over delay in payment of imp rest for the up keep of ministries as well as other Agencies.
Governor Uzodinma had since assumption of office in 2020 not thought it wise to make such monies available to the designated ministrieswhich the heads of the ministries use in the running and maintenance of their ministries.
Upon assumption of office and the subsequent appointment of the various appointees in the ministries, there was a belief that Uzodinma would in no distant time start releasing the said imp rest, but to the disappointment of the commissioners and other appointees, the Governor is yet to do anything to that effect, even when the government has clocked one year.
Investigation carried out by weekend Lead revealed that majority of the Commissioners and other heads of Agencies, find it difficult to carry out some vital projects that would benefit the ministries and Imo people in general since such projects require money to come into limelight and would not use their personal salaries to effect such.
This paper gathered that what the commissioners resolved to do is to carry out the specified assignments in their various ministries particularly the ones that provisions for are made by the state Government, and wait upon the Governor for the much awaited imp rest.
One of the appointees who chose to speak on the guise of anonymity expressed worry over nonpayment of the said funds, adding that the said funds that Governor who is known for selfless service may have borrowed this ugly idea from the short Ihedioha led administration.
However, Lead further learnt that the Government has started planning for cabinet reshuffle.
A source from the Government house revealed that the Governor may accommodate in the new cabinet, interests of the stakeholders in Imo, particularly members of the defunct coalition
