Anambra House begins screening of Obiano’s commissioners Thursday as 4 local government got no commissioner



www.odogwublog.com reports that Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano has sent a list of 19 Commissioner designates to the Anambra State House of Assembly for screening. The screening starts today Thursday.


This is a follow up to the swearing of his Principal Officers on Monday and a clear indication that the governor is determined to move at a commendable speed to achieve his set targets in his second term in office and leave an enduring legacy for Ndi Anambra.
Only eight members of the previous cabinet made it back to the executive council this time pending their ratification by the Anambra State House of Assembly.
The returnee commissioners are Dr Mrs Uju Nwogu (Anaocha), former commissioner for Sports and Youth Empowerment who has been singled out to head the Ministry of Justice, Hon Ifeatu Onejeme (Awka South) who retains his position as the Commissioner for Finance, Hon Mark Okoye (Dunukofia) who retains his portfolio as the Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget and Hon Greg Obi (Nnewi South) who also returns to his post as the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs after the screening.
Other returnee commissioners are Dr Joe Akabuike (Orumba North) who stays as the Commissioner for Health, Hon Obi Nwankwo (Awka South) who retains his position as the Commissioner for Public Utilities, Hon Afam Mbanefo (Nnewi North) who keeps his portfolio as Commissioner for Agriculture and Prof Kate Omenugha (Idemili South) who is now Commissioner for Basic Education pending the outcome of the screening by the Anambra State House of Assembly.
Other Commissioners who have been penciled down to join the new cabinet are Mr C. Don Adinuba (Ihiala) who will be screened for the post of the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Engr Marcel Ifejiofor (Anambra East) who will be screened for the post of the Commissioner for Works, Nnamdi Onukwuba (Onitsha North) who will undergo screening for the Ministry of Lands and Arc Mike Okonkwo (Orumba South) who will move from his former position as the MD of Awka Capital Development Authority to the Ministry of Environment after the screening.
Others are Dr Obiekezie Theresa Nkechi (Njikoka) who has been designated for the post of Commissioner for Tertiary and Science Education, Dr Christian Madubuko (Ayamelum) who will be screened for the Ministry of Trade and Commerce, Mr Uche Okafor (Oyi) designated for the Ministry of Transport and Mr Bonaventure Enemali (Anambra West) who is lined up for the Ministry of Youth Entrepreneurship.
Other new commissioner nominees are Sally Mbanefo (Onitsha North) who will be screened to head the Ministry of Local Artwork, Culture and Tourism, Ndidi Mezue (Dunukofia) who is being presented for the post of the commissioner for Women and Children Affairs and Engr Emeka Ezenwanne (Aguata) who will be screened for the post of Commissioner for Housing.
The House begins screening of the incoming commissioners, and if concluded on Thursday Governor Obiano's new cabinet is expected to be fully in place before the end of this week.



However , out of these 19 Commissioners , 4 council areas have nobody in the cabinet including Awka North, Ekwusigo, Onitsha South and Idemmili North local government areas.
The question is why should Awka South, Onitsha North and Dunukofia get two (2) Commissioner nominees each whereas four local government areas have nothing . Does it mean that nobody in APGA or brother to APGA members in these council areas are good to be nominated aside Commissioner? Or does it mean people from these council areas are not part of the 21/21 success story of last elections?
