The outgoing Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu has announced the appointment of a new Chief of Staff.
He is Mr Chukwuemeka Enwereji and holds Bachelor of Laws degree from the Abia State University Uturu (ABSU), as well as a Master of Laws degree from the University of Lagos.
This was contained in a release issued on Wednesday by Onyebuchi Ememanka, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Abia state which was sent to The Eastern Updates on Thursday.
The latest appointment of Enwereji followed the resignation and nomination of the former occupant, Chief Okey Ahiwe who was the 2023 main governorship of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia state at the concluded general elections.
His nomination came on the backdrop of the death of the ex-governorship standard-bearer and former Vice-Chancellor of Abia State University Uturu, Professor Uche Eleazar Ikonne at the national hospital, Abuja.
