THE Enugu State governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has sent a list of 24 Commissioners-nominee to the State House of Assembly for screening and confirmation.

According to the list read on the floor of the House on Thursday by the Speaker, Edward Ubochi, the nominees include three former House of Representatives members, Ambassador Fidel Ayogu, Chijioke Edoga and Peace Nnaji.

Also in the list were two former local government chairmen, Sam Ugwu and Ozo Vitalis Onuzulike; founding Chairman of PDP in Enugu State, Charles Egumbe, and Rita Chinelo Mba, who was an Adviser to immediate past Governor, Sullivan Chime.

The other are: Patrick Ezebuilo Ikpenwa, Udeuhele Godwin Ikpechukwu, Mabeke Obinna Benjamin, Greg Nnaji, Chika Smart Ogbe, Ndukwe Charles Chuka, Chidi Aroh and Sam Ogbu Nwobodo.

Shortly after the Speaker had presented the correspondence from the Ggovernor to the House, the Leader, Ikechukwu Ezeugwu, urged his colleagues to accept the list of the nominees for consideration.

“I rise to move that the message for 24 nominees be accepted for consideration on a later date,” Ezeugwu said.
