List of Anmbra Commissioners. Governor Chukwuma Soludo nominates 20 as Commissioners for his new cabinet, Speaker Uchenna Okafor announced today.
Additionally, the Governor also requested the House of Assembly to approve 15 advisers to help him run the government.
Interestingly, the list includes five political appointees from the administration of his predecessor, Chief Willie Obiano.
The lucky five include Paul Nwosu (former special adviser), and Ifeatu Onejeme (former Commissioner). Others include Collins Nwabunwanne, and Chief Chikodi Anara.
The designated portfolios of each nominee were attached in this list, showing the agencies they are to man. This is a refreshing departure from the norm. Presidents and governors hitherto send names and whimsically attach portfolios after clearance without regard to qualifications or experience.
The 20-person list includes the following:
|1||Prof Ngozi Therese Chuma-Ude||Education||Ihiala|
