An Enugu based renowned broadcaster, Hon. Sebastian Okafor(Nwogwugwu Ọgwụ of Family love Fm) has kicked against what he called ‘diagonal exclusion of Awgu Local Government Area from crucial appointments made so far by the Enugu state governor, Mr. Peter Mba alleging that it was dominated by loyalists of former governor of the state, Sullivan Chime and boys from the camp of Senator Ike Ekweremmadu.

Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu state had on Friday transmitted 15 Commissioner Designates to the state’s house of Assembly for ratification.

Dissatisfied with this development, Mr. Sebastian Okafor said “a state appointment of this nature must be all inclusive; especially for technocrats who suffered and sacrificed a lot during the election ”

The media practitioner said even some PDP loyalists are miffed by their non-inclusion in the appointment made so far.

He wondered why a whole local government could be entirely excluded from the scheme of things in the state and advised Peter Mbah not to toe the path.

Mr. Okafor insisted that “the development has sparked condemnation amongst members of the public as well as some PDP members especially political actors.

“I consider that act as a hallmark of dishonour. Out of about 43 appointments made so far by Governor Peter Mbah, only one is from Awgu who happens to be the chairman of the Joint Accounts Allocation Committee (JAAC)”.

“It is an unfair treatment to the good people of Awgu because we gave our all for his electoral success”

“No local Government is more important than the other but with what we are seeing, it appears some Local Governments who couldn’t deliver during the election are more important than those who delivered”

“Dr Peter Mbah is a good man and needs to accommodate Awgu very well. I am happy that he gave Oji-River 2 commissioner’s slot which is a welcomed development ”

A critical analysis made by Daily Gazette shows that Awgu  LGA, Enugu East, Igbo-eze South, Enugu North and Uzouwani were not captured in the commissioner nominees sent to the state assembly for confirmation.
