Dr. Otti: Striving to put the critical departments of government in place
Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR, will today, Friday, July 7, 2023 swear-in the newly appointed commissioners in the state.
A statement by Mr. Kazie Uko, Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to Gov Otti, recalls that the governor had last week submitted a list of 19 nominees for the post of commissioners to the State House of Assembly for approval.
According to the statement made available to SummitNews, 16 of them subsequently appeared before the House, earlier this week, for screening and were promptly cleared.
The other three nominees are expected to appear before the Assembly next week for screening.
The 16 commissioner-designates are scheduled for swearing-in today at the Banquet Hall of the Government House, Umuahia, by 11 a.m.
They are expected to be allocated portfolios after the exercise.
