The member representing Ehime Mbano/ Ihitte Uboma/ Obowo Federal Constituency, Rep. Chike Okafor, has hailed the appointment of Mr. Anamekwe Nwabuoka as the Acting Account- General of the Federation by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Okafor in a personally signed statement described Nwabuoku’s appointment as yet another testament to the President’s love for Imo State especially his Constituency.
The lawmaker recalled that another member of his Constituency, Mr. Emeka Nwajiuba was appointed as minister by President Buhari but only recently resigned to contest for the office of President after meritorious service to the nation as Minister of State for Education.
The statement read in part: “I wish to heartily salute the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Your Excellency, Muhammadu Buhari, for magnanimously appointing our son, Anamekwe Nwabuoku to such lofty position of trust in your administration.
“With the appointment of Anamekwe Nwabuoku, my constituent from the Ehime Mbano Council area of Imo state, to oversee operations in the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation (OAGF), as the Ag. Accountant-General of the Federation, we are immensely grateful, Your Excellency
“We do not take for granted, that it was not so long ago our son, the Minister of State for Education, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba resigned his appointment, to pursue his presidential ambition, that you, Mr. President yet again honoured the good people of Okigwe South with another appointment.
“I make bold to state that indeed, Okigwe South is in your good books! By the same token, we wish to state that by this appointment, Mr. President has shown that he is not unmindful of the loyalty and commitment of the people of Okigwe South to his administration and policy initiatives”.
Okafor assured the President of the integrity of the new Acting Accountant-General of the Federation, saying his constituent comes to the exalted office with a good record.
The lawmaker also commended the President for his support for the Imo State Governor, Sen. Hope Uzodinma.
“We therefore vouch for Anamekwe Nwabuoku and state without any fear of equivocation that he is a competent and consumate professional; with an unblemished record of service to this nation, we have no doubt he will excel in service, integrity and loyalty.
“Expectedly, our people are jubilant and full of gratitude! And we have accordingly affirmed, among other things, that our resolve to support your administration to the end, remains iron-clad.
“As a people, you put us further in your debt, with your unwavering support for our dear Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, on whose side, you firmly stood as we weathered the brutal storm of insecurity earlier in the year. We are thankful”, the statement further read.
