Abians react over choice of an Imolite to head Ministry of Health

Reactions have continued to stray in, following the swearing in of Dr Joe Osuji as the commissioner of Health.

Dr Joe Osuji who is from Egbu Autonomous community in Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo state, was among the 23 commissioner nominees that were sworn in yesterday.

Speaking to National Ambassador Political Reporter, Hon Uka Daniel Anyangwo from Bende Local Government Area but resident in Imo state, expressed satisfaction over the choice of an Imolite to be a commissioner in Abia.

According to him, it shows to a great extent how detribalised the Abia state Governor is.

Hon Anyangwo said the association of Abians Resident in Imo state (ABRIS), under the leadership of Hon Uche Ekpe and Chief Nnadozie Udensi, decided to come to Abia not only to witness the swearing in of their patron Dr Osuji, but to celebrate the Abia governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu for demonstrating oneness by choosing an indigene of Imo state among his cabinet.

He stated that the members of ABRIS are happy, because the new commissioner of Health would carry every one along no matter where you are from, disclosing that the Governor did not make a wrong decision.

While calling on Imo citizens resident in Abia to comport themselvess in good character, Anyangwo urged other Governors especially in the South East to emulate Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.

Also, the new Commissioner of Homeland Security, Prince Dan Okoli while reacting on the issue, said the Governor’s action of an Imolite to chair the Health Ministry, speaks volume of the relationship between Abia and Imo states, adding that from the way things are going in the country, regional government is being encouraged.

The new Commissioner for Homeland Security thanked the Governor for finding him worthy to chair a brand new Ministry, calling on Abians to give him total support, as he would leverage on whatever information given to him.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, an Abian who had  a different view,said the Governor should not have gone to the extent of giving a key Ministry to a non Abian to handle, undermining the potentials we have in the state, who would  equally do well in the Health Ministry.
