Ikpeazu Inaugurates 24 Man Transition Committee

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, on Tuesday, inaugurated a 24-man state transition committee, with a charge to ensure a successful handover process.

Speaking during the event at the Government House, Umuahia, Ikpeazu said that the committee had been set up to ensure that necessary things were put in place to usher in the in-coming administration.

The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Chief Ude Oko-Chukwu, listed the terms of reference that would guide the operations of the committee to include:

“Preparation of a detailed and well-articulated hand-over note that will enable the incoming administration to start on a good footing, without hitches.

“To ensure a seamless transition in a very convivial atmosphere as well as mass mobilisation and participation of the people of Abia in the transition ceremony on May 29.

“To dutifully carry out any other directive that may be given by the governor.”

Ikpeazu urged the committee to reach out to the government whenever the need arose during the course of its assignment.

Responding, Chairman of the committee, Mr Chris Ezem, expressed the confidence that members of the committee would live up to expectation.

Ezem, who is also the Secretary to the State Government, said that as the present administration was beginning its terminal movement, the transition must be done seamlessly.

“This committee will work in unity, bringing our experience within and outside the government to bear to facilitate a seamless transition from the present administration to the in-coming government,” he said.

Governor Ikpeazu, who would be completing his second tenure on May 29, is expected to hand over power to the governor-elect, Alex Otti, candidate of the Labour Party, who won the March 18 poll.
