Gov. Soludo swears in Commissioners, Special Adviser


Gov. Soludo swears in Commissioners, Special Adviser

The newly-confirmed Anambra State commissioners, were on Saturday, sworn-in/inaugurated by the State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.


The event, which was held at the Executive Chamber of the Government House, in Awka, the state’s capital, also featured the swearing-in of a Special Adviser to the Governor.

Soludo, while performing the swearing-in function, congratulated but also reminded the commissioners that their appointments were calls to serve, and not to celebrate. He also informed them of the enormous tasks ahead and charged them to drive a positive change in their respective ministries and to work towards leaving great legacies with which they will be remembered after their services as commissioners.

He said “This is a call to work and not a call to celebrate. When I say congratulations to you, I also say commiserations. You have offered to serve Anambra, and you must provide service.


“The challenges are enormous, and that is why you have also offered to serve. During my campaign, I told everyone that the work put in to get office is just five percent, 95 percent of the work comes after swearing in, and you must bear that in mind”.

The commissioners sworn-in and their ministries are: Mr Ifeatu Chinedu (Finance), Prof. Ofonze Amucheazi (Lands) Mr Ifeanyi Okoma (Works and Infrastructure ), Ms Chiamaka Nnake (Budget and Economy Planing) Dr Afam Obidike (Health), Mr Patrick Agha-mba (Youth Development), Mrs Ifeyinwa Obinabo (Women/Children Afairs), Dr Obinna Ugonnadi (Commerce and Industry), Mr Julius Chukwuemeka (Power and Water Resources), and Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh (Education).

Others are Mr Paul Nwosu (Information), Dr Foster Ihejiofor (Agriculture), Mrs Patricia Igwebuike (Transport), Mr Felix Odimegwu (Environment), Mr. Chikodi Anara (Home Land Afairs), Prof. Chika Ifemeje (Attorney General/Commissioner for Justice), Mr Collins Nwabunwanne (Local Government and Chieftancy Affairs), Mr Donatus Onyeji (Culture/Entertainment), Mr. Anthony Ifeanya (Petroleum) and Mr Paulinus Onyeaka (Housing).

Rtd. Air-Vice Marshal Ben Chiobi was also sworn-in as the Special Adviser on Security Matters during the event.


Recall that Governor Soludo had, in a letter dated March 28, submitted the list of the Commissioner-nominees to the state’s House Assembly for screening and confirmation —an exercise that was finalized by the House on Thursday during the plenary.
