Ikpeazu swears in Accountant-General as Permanent Secretary



Appoints 18 Special Advisers, Assistants
GOVERNOR Okezie Ikpeazu has sworn in the Accountant General of Abia State, Mr. Gabriel Onyendilefu, as permanent secretary in the state Civil Service. The governor, who described Onyendilefu as a man with enviable track record while serving as Accountant General, said he also earned the state respect and recognition from the Central Bank of Nigeria as a prudent manager of resources.

According to the governor, it was for this reason that “Onyendilefu was chosen for the new position and also in respect of my pledge to accord respect and honour to civil servants, who deserve them.”

The governor charged the new Permanent Secretary after he was administered his oath of office on Friday by the state Solicitor-General, Mr. Enyinnaya Okezie, to remain committed to the service, pointing out to him: “to whom much is given that much is also expected.”

He remarked that Abia State civil service remains the pivot on which the government revolves and that government performance would be determined by how efficient the civil service is.

Elated by his elevation, Onyendilefu thanked the governor for the honour done him and pledged to continue to live up to the governor’s charge while discharging his official duties.

Meanwhile, less than two weeks after Governor Ikpeazu announced his 20 commissioner-nominees, 18 persons, including three women, have also been appointed as his Special Advisers and Senior Special Assistants.

The governor had, not long after his assumption of office, appointed about 20 persons into critical positions. They include Secretary to the State Government, Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff, Advisers for Legislative Affairs, Special Duties, Due Process, Economic Affairs, Aba Renewal, Senior Special Assistants, and Chief Press Secretary, among others.

Commenting on the appointments, the governor’s Senior Special Assistant, Media, a former Chief Press Secretary to former governor Theodore Orji (now senator), Mr. Ugo Emezue, said that the appointees were well considered.
