Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State on Tuesday sent a list of 20 persons as Commissioner-nominees to the State House of Assembly.

Some of the Commissioner-nominees include Mr Ifeatu Chinedu, Prof. Ofonze Amucheazi, Mr Ifeanyi Okoma, Mrs Chiamaka Nnake, Dr Afam Obidike, Mr Patrick Aghamba, Mrs Ifeyinwa Obinabo, Dr Obinna Ugonnadi, Mr Julius Chukwuemeka and Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh

Others were Mr Paul Nwosu, Dr Foster Ihejiofor, Mrs Patricia Igwebuike, Mr Felix Odimegwu, Mr Chikodi Anara, Prof. Chika Ifemeje, Mr Collins Nwabunwanne, Mr Donatus Onyeji, Mr Anthony Ifeanya and Mr Paulinus Onyeaka.

The Governor also submitted 15 more names as Special Advisers which was approved through voice vote by the lawmakers present.

Soludo had on the day of inauguration announced that the list of his commissioners would be made available to the legislature on or before one or two weeks after his swearing in.

The list which had one commissioner designate per local government area left Idemili North local government vacant and it is being canvassed that the position of Idemili North may have been vacant due to the appointment of Prof Solo Chukwulobelu who is the Secretary to the State Government SSG.

But there is no official statement on the absence of a commissioner designate for the local government area.

The Speaker of the House, Mr Uche Okafor, who announced the names during plenary while reading a letter from Gov. Charles Soludo dated March 28 said the Governor also sent another letter requesting the confirmation of 15 Special Adviser nominees.

The Speaker, however, asked the House Committee on Screening to screen the commissioner-nominees.

The majority leader moved a motion for the confirmation of the 15 special advisers and they were approved after a voice-vote.
