Philemon Asonye Ogbonna

A Chieftain of the Labour Party, LP, in Abia State, Mr. Philemon Asonye Ogbonna, has described the composition of the transition committee announced by the Governor-elect of Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti as a sign of commitment to provide quality and impactful leadership to the people of Abia State.

It should be recalled that Otti, had on Tuesday, announced Mr. Victor Onyenkpa, Chief Operating Officer, KPMG, Mrs. Ifueko Omogui Okauru, former Executive Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Arunma Oteh, former Director General of Nigeria’s Securities and Exchange Commission, as some of the members of his transition council.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Ogbonna said the calibre and pedigree of those appointed by Abia’s governor-elect could only mean a preparedness to positively turn around the fortunes of the State.

He also said that the level of infrastructural decay, misgovernance and indebtedness of the State required the assemblage of technocrats and professionals to determine the direction and areas of concentration by the incoming administration.

Ogbonna expressed optimism that Otti would lead Abia State in a manner that will accelerate its growth and development, adding that there was no doubt that he would inherit a lot of challenges from the outgoing administration of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu.

He said, “It is a common saying in Ibo that a day that will be good starts with the early rising of the sun. My take on the names that made Dr. Alex Otti’s Transition Council is that he has shown that he is ready to run a government that will not take time to begin to deliver dividend of democracy. I have no doubts in my mind that the governor-elect, being an Economist and a seasoned Banker is well equipped to harness human and material resources to make Abia the God’s own State that it is known for”.
