Enugu state governor-elect, Dr. Peter Mbah, is expected to name his Chief Press Secretary, Chief of Staff and Secretary to the State Government after his swearing on Monday May 29, 2023.
An insider source said the names were already penciled down even as different persons have been linked to the different positions.
The three positions are part of the early appointments expected to kick start the new administration ahead the inauguration of the State Executive Council.
The position of Press Secretary and Special Assistant on Media is expected to be between Dan Nwome, a former press secretary to Governor Chimaroke Nnamani and Uche Anichukwu, former media aide to Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
Chief Nana Ogbodo is being tipped for the position of Commissioner for Information, a position the media in Enugu is very much interested in.
Ogbodo’s closeness to Enugu journalists is an added advantage over other candidates for the Information commissioner position.
