Gov. Obi Re-appoints Disqualified APGA Guber Aspirant, Obaze As SSG

PETER-OBIThe Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has re-appointed Mr. Oseloka Obaze as Secretary to the State Government (SSG).

Obaze confirmed his re-appointment in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Sunday.

He said that he could still add value to governance and service to the people of Anambra.

“I believe that we are entering the most critical phase of the Peter Obi’s administration, given the need to consolidate all political, economic and developmental gains.

“There is also the need to ensure continuity and to also ensure that we finish strong by winning the forthcoming gubernatorial elections and facilitating a seamless transition to the next APGA-led government in the state.”

Obaze said that his letter of re-appointment was handed over to him on August 29.

“Consequently, I will resume full duties as secretary to the State Government after a very brief vacation,” he stated.

NAN recalls that Obaze had resigned his position as SSG on August 12, to seek the ticket of APGA for the November 6 gubernatorial election in the state.

He was, however, disqualified from the race.

The party’s screening panel, led by one Alhaji Tayo Sowunmi, disqualified Obaze because he did not have a voter’s card.

A former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, was similarly disqualified from the governorship race.
