Listen to article

A good governance group which has identified itself as the Imo Social Contract Group (ISCG) has charged newly appointed officials in Imo State to bring their best to bear in their new tasks.

The group also urged Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma to neither be distracted nor relent in his efforts to transform the state into a hub of development in Nigeria.

The group stated this while commending the governor for considering merit, experience and proficiency in appointing his personal aides, including Chief Ferdinand Uzodinma as deputy chief of staff (general services).

The group said the governor rose “above close-minded and divisive sentiments” to source for best hands as aides in line with his administration’s resolve to harness home-grown proficiencies to guarantee multisectoral good governance and productivity in the state.

A statement by the group’s convener Dr. Fabian Ihekweme, described the deputy chief of staff’s appointment “as a step in the right direction as it is fundamentally based on merit considering his competence, administrative expertise, wealth of experience, record of performance and undisputed allegiance to the state.”

The group urged “Governor Uzodimma not to be distracted or relented in his genuine efforts and steps with which he is transforming Imo State as a hub of development in Nigeria, especially in ensuring security, infrastructural development and empowerment of citizens in critical areas of life.”

It also charged the “newly appointed officials including the re-appointed Secretary to the State Government, Chief Cosmos Iwu, Chief of Staff, Barr. Nnamdi Anyaehie; Deputy Chief of Staff (Operations), Barr. Sydney Agbor as well as Deputy Chief of Staff (Administration), Patrick Ekeji, Barr. Enyinnaya Onuegbu Political Adviser and Head Political Bureau and of course the Special Adviser on Programme and Policy Implementation and Monitoring, Sam Nwaobasi, to put in their best in their new tasks.”

The statement continued, “We note that though the Deputy Chief of Staff as a personal aide of the governor have no direct role to play in government, and despite the fact the choice of and appointment of personal aides are exclusive to the Governor, Governor Uzodinma had always respected and considered merit, capacity, competence and proven loyalty and commitment to the State in making such appointments.

“We also note that Governor Uzodinma had always ensured an even spread of political appointments as well as his personal aides to reflect and ensure representation of all the various segments of the State.

“The appointment of Chief Ferdinand Uzodimma as Deputy Chief of Staff (General Services) is therefore well-deserved and should be commended by every well-meaning and progressive-minded son and daughter of Imo State, given his competence, administrative expertise, wealth of experience, record of performance, connection with the people and undisputed allegiance to the State”, the statement asserted.

The group asserted that Chief Ferdinand Uzodinma is a well-respected leader in his own right who will further bring on board his administrative experience and skills garnered over the years as a Local Government Councilor, Transition Committee Chairman and later Local Government Sole Administrator among others.
