Former Secretary to the Imo State Government, Jude Ejiogu said on Sunday, that his sack was a divinely orchestrated.
The ex-SSG, in a statement signed by him, explained that he was not fired by as a result of incompetence, laxity or weakness, adding that God has plans for his future.
Recall, that Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, on Friday 18 March, fired Ejiogu in a letter made available to the Imo State broadcast outfit, and signed by the Principal Secretary to the Governor, Pascal Obi.
The statement reads: “Convincingly, I know the Governor’s decision to relieve me of my position was not as a result of failure, incompetence, mediocrity or negligence of duty on my part, but it was a sound desire to give another Imolite the privilege to contribute his or her quota aimed at developing our dear state, the Eastern Heartland. God has plans of future elevations in my life, through which I can continue to touch the lives of the good people of Imo State positively in many ways.”
In addition, Ejiogu, who was once the Chief of Staff, COS, commended Governor Rochas Okorocha for giving him “the priceless opportunity” to showcase his experience and expertise, stressing that his greatest joy had been to serve Imo people to the best of his ability.
Ejiogu who started his political career in Imo State, as an adviser on Internally Generated Revenue,was appointed the Secretary to the State Government, just after the 2015 general elections.
