Ikpeazu makes fresh appointments, silent on SSG, commissioners

Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu at the weekend, made three new appointments 48 hours after he dissolved his cabinet.

Upon dissolving his cabinet, Ikpeazu retained only​ ​his Chief of Staff, Sunny Nwakodo,​ ​and​ ​two Commissioners (Finance) Obinna Oriaku and (Justice and Attorney-General), Umeh Kalu.

​All the ​commissioners had present​ed ​their scorecards at a forum attended by the governor on May 28 and 29.

Permanent Secretary, Government House, Mr. Onyii Wamah, who announced the development, gave no reason.

Ikpeazu ​has now approved three special advisers.

A former Commissioner for Works, Mr. Eziuche Ubani, was appointed Special Adviser on Works and Project Monitoring.

Others appointed include Mr. Emma Nwabuko and Mr. Solomon Ogunji, as Special Adviser/Personal Secretary to the Governor and Special Adviser on Urban Renewal​.

All appointments, it was learnt, take immediate effect.

Ikpeazu is, however, keeping his replacements for S​ecretary to the State Government (SSG), Commissioners and Special Advisers/Assistants under wraps.
