enugu hilltop elects new officers

Enugu Hilltop Club, Abuja, elects new executive officers to manage affairs of the Club for the next two years.

Chief Chris M. Okafor, former President of Nigerian Statistical Association, leads a new team to pilot the Club’s affairs. He is also retired from Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) where he rose to the directorate level.

Chief Okafor will be assisted by Prof. Ofili Ugwudioha, Professor of Accounting at the Nile University in Abuja. Ugwudioha is a former National President and Chairman of Council of Nigeria’s Chartered Institute of Administration.

Hilltop Club of Abuja is an exclusive club of accomplished Enugu State citizens. Club members routinely investigate and intervene on issues of justice and development in their home State.

The Okafor-led executive is therefore taking the reigns from the former executive, led by Chief Gabriel Ugwuozor.

Ugwuozor, a financial consultant, property manager is also a retired deputy director (Finance) at the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) led the Club for three terms.

Club’s new spokesperson, Ozo Silas Ogbodo, said in a statement that the Club will upscale its profile by publicising more of its critical interventions on behalf of the State.

The new executive comes at a time that the nation is having a spirited conversation on governance, Ogbodo told newsmen.

“Hilltop Club will continue to be a moderating influence on national and local issues as they affect Enugu,” he said.

Other executive committee members include Mr. Silas Chukwuowo (Secretary), Ndubuisi C. Ugwu (Asst. Secretary), Emma Ossai (Financial Secretary), ‘Dozie P. Ene (Treasurer), Chief Marcel Ezeagu (Social/Welfare Officer), and Eze Ezeilo (Provost).

The spokesperson said the new chairman appreciated Club members and also commended the Ugwuozor-led Executive which served more than three terms of office.
