Some stakeholders of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Enugu state have criticised the appointments made so far by the State Governor, Peter Mbah, describing it as ‘lopsided’.

Daily Gazette reports that Governor Mbah on Friday transmitted list of 15 Commissioner Designates to the hallowed chamber of the Enugu state House of Assembly for ratification.


Reacting to this development, a PDP stalwart who spoke to Daily Gazette on the condition of anonymity, said they were disappointed that non of the people who suffered for the party before, during and after the election were remembered or compensated.

“He only appoints his friends and sometimes residents of other states leaving those that suffered for him behind. This is not what we bargained and never what we expected”.

“government in power must make sure that appointments are evenly distributed so that the government is not accused of bias.”

He said that people are crying that Mbah’s government is skewed to favour some people he believes are his friends.

“As far as I am concerned, if appointments don’t capture all the ethnic nationalities in the state, there is bound to be crisis, whether the government is PDP, APC Labour Party or even APGA. How can you have peace when there is no sense of belonging?”

“When you make state appointments to surround your local government, your village, your chiefdom, then, this is lopsided. It can be so described,” he concluded.

Full list of the commissioner nominees submitted to the state assembly on Friday are as follows;

1. Professor Ndubueze Mbah

2. Mrs. Ngozi Eni

3. Prince Lawrence Eze – Nkanu East

4. Professor Sam Ugwu – Isiuzo

5. Pharmacist Chika Ugwoke – Nsukka

6. Dr. Kingsley Ude – Nkanu West

7. Professor Emmanuel I. Obi – Nkanu West

8. Deacon Okey Ogbodo – Enugu South

9. Ben Ugochi Madueke – Oji-River

10. Barr. Lloyd I. Ekweremadu – Aninri

11. Engr. Gerald Otiji

12. Nathaniel Urama – Igbo-eze North

13. Dr. Malachy Agbo -Nsukka

14. Mr. Aka Eze Aka – Udenu

15. Ada Chukwu

Few weeks ago, Governor Mbah appointed 24 persons and assigned them with various portfolios, prominent among which are Special Advisers and Special Assistants.
