Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has announced some key officials that are to serve with him in the present administration.
The governor made the announcements during a parley with newsmen on Thursday, June 11, 2013. He announced Mr. Gabriel Chukwubuikem Ajah as the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Sylvanus Onoyima as his Special Adviser on Due Process, Mr. Uwakwe Abugu as his Chief Press Secretary and Mr. Louis Amoke as his Senior Special Assistant on Media.
Prior to these announcements, there had been rumours that Governor Ugwuanyi’s delay in making appointments was due to the fact that he was trying to balance the desires of conflicting interest groups within the state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
However, Governor Ugwuanyi firmly displaced those rumours by stating that “the era of politics is over,” and that he was ready to operate an “all inclusive government” which means making room for all former governors and other leaders of the state through the reconstitution of the Elders’ Council.
The governor also announced that his list of prospective commissioners, special advisers and other appointees was ready and awaiting confirmation from the State House of Assembly.
