Mr Christian Aburime, Press Secretary to Soludo who made this public in a Statement, said the appointments were in furtherance to the reforms agenda of the governor to ensure transparency, accountability and optimal delivery.

He said the appointments followed due process and merit involving computer based examination and one-on-one interviews with the governor.

“This ensured the identification of high-performing individuals in different professions and senatorial zones who are poised to excel within the Civil Service.

“This personalised interaction allowed for a deeper understanding of the candidates’ aspirations, vision, and alignment with the government’s objectives, ensuring a well-rounded evaluation,” he said.

In another report, the Anambra State chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has given Governor Soludo a seven-day ultimatum to address workers’ welfare in the state.

The NLC and Trade Union Congress (TUC), however, pointed out that if Soludo fails to address their welfare concerns within the stipulated timeframe, they will commence a strike.

This ultimatum was outlined in a joint statement issued in Awka on Wednesday, signed by the Labour leaders of NLC, Humphrey Nwafor, and Chris Ogbonna of TUC.

The unions also urged Soludo to establish a ministry of labour or appoint a special adviser to facilitate communication between the government and labour unions in the state.
