UMUAHIA, Nigeria — Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, has taken a significant step in the constitution of his cabinet by submitting the names of 19 Commissioner-nominees to the Abia State House of Assembly for screening and confirmation.

This comes after the governor hinted two weeks ago that he would constitute his cabinet by the end of June 2023.

The list of nominees was forwarded to the Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Emmanuel Emereuwa, through a letter dated Friday, June 30, 2023.

The letter was titled, “Forwarding of Proposed List of Honourable Commissioners and Members of the Abia State Executive Council”.

In the letter, Governor Otti expressed his delight and stated, “I am delighted to forward the following names as my nominees for consideration for the position of Honourable Commissioners and Members of the Abia State Executive Council.”

The 19 Commissioner-nominees are; Prof Monica Ironkwe, Kingsely Anosike, Prof Eme Uche, Philemon Asonye Ogbonna, Mike Akpara (currently the Special Adviser to the Governor on Finance), Ngozi Okoronkwo (currently Special Adviser on Health), Okey Kanu (currently Special Adviser on Communication), Ikechukwu Uwaoma, Chaka Chukwumereije, Uzo Nwachukwu, and Prof Joel Friday Ogbonna.

The submission of these names marks the beginning of the process through which the Abia State House of Assembly will screen the nominees before confirming them to serve as Commissioners in the State’s Executive Council.

It is expected that the House of Assembly will begin the screening process in the coming days, after which they will announce their decision regarding the confirmation of the nominees.

The constitution of a new cabinet is a critical step in governance, and the people of Abia State will be watching keenly as the screening and confirmation process unfolds.
