Alex Otti who is the Governor of Abia State has approved the appointment of Mrs. Chidinma Martha Ndukwe as the acting rector of Abia State Polytechnic, Aba.
The Easern Updates reports that until the latest appointment, Ndukwe was Deputy Rector (Academics) of the institution.
His appointment followed the earlier approval of the governor that the most senior civil servants should take over the leadership of the institution.
The approval was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday by Ferdinand Ekeoma, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Governor of Abia State.
Others appointed to take over the leadership of their respective institutions in acting capacity are Barrister Nkwo Victor O’Brien, Secondary Education Management Board (SEMB); Mr Ukaegbu Peacebee, Abia State Board of Internal Revenue Service; and Pst. Uka Ndu Igwe, Abia State Community and Social Development Agency (Abia-CSDA).
The statement added: ‘Those affected by this directive should adhere strictly and avoid actions that could cause disruption of government activities in the aforementioned institutions.’
In another report, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has advised Governor Alex Otti of Abia State not to abuse the privilege God has given him by making him Governor, urging him to work for Abia people.
He spoke at the special thanksgiving service organised at Umuahia, on Sunday where he called on Otti to always consider the poor and downtrodden in his policies and programmes.
He added that pensioners, civil servants, and others should feel the positive impact of his governance, expressing worry that Nigeria’s leadership is still in the hands of the wrong people.
