EverydayNews commends Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s efforts towards arresting the current security challenges in the state.
We also commend his recent visit and offer of automatic employment to widows of policemen killed by unknown gunmen at a checkpoint in the state.
May we further commend His Excellency for appointing Administrators for the 68 Development Centers in the state.
This may have taken a long time, having long been expected, but it’s better late than never.
Now, that you have started, your Excellency, please don’t stop because there are needs to fill the vacant positions for the smooth running of the Government.
Starting from the vacant Commissioner position in the State Ministry of Transportation, we have also confirmed that over 14 Permanent Secretary positions are vacant. These include PUblic Service Department, ENRUWASA, Rural Development, Gender, Sports, Information among others. These require urgent attention.
There is also the issue of rotation of Permanent Secretary to make them more responsive. A situation where a permanent secretary remains at a place for four years is presently causing problems in the Ministries.
Your Excellency, only EverydayNews Telescope can reveal to you that people are talking behind closed doors that majority of those who started with you are being recycled to the detriment of many who have remained on the bench and sideline.
Even the recently announced administratiors, some chairmen are not happy that the lists they submitted did not count.
Some who had high hopes of appointment are also complaining that people who did not work for the party were rather appointed.
While appointments are purely at your descretion we urge you to use your wisdom in the best interest of the state.
