After  extensive personal discussions with Gov. Obi, my family, constituents  and friends,  I have accepted Gov.  Obi’s gracious offer of  reappointment, in the belief that I can still bring added value to  purposeful governance and service of Anambra people as an advocate for  continuity and sustainable good governance.  I believe that we are  entering the most critical phase of the Peter Obi administration, given  the need to consolidate all political, economic and developmental  gains,  ensure continuity and finish strong by winning the forthcoming  gubernatorial elections and facilitating a seamless transition to the  next APGA-led government in the state, God willing. Consequently, I shall resume full duties as the Secretary to the State Government  after a very brief vacation and family visit, and attending the  forthcoming ANSG Executive Retreat in Johannesburg.”
