Ugwuanyi appoints Azikiwe’s son as Special Adviser
The Enugu State governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has appointed Mr Uwakwe Ukuta Azikiwe, the son of the former Premier of the Eastern Region and Nigeria’s first President, late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, as Special Adviser on Special Duties.
The governor said the appointment followed the contributions late Azikiwe made to the state, the Igbo nation and the country at large, adding that it was based on his conviction that he (Uwakwe) would bring his wealth of experience to add value to the efforts of his administration to impact positively on the lives of the people of the state.
Uwakwe is an American-trained lawyer, who was called to the Nigerian Bar in 2005. He attended Lincoln University and University of Baltimore School of Law, both in the United States of America, and until his recent appointment, was a pioneer staff of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
The new Adviser thanked the governor “for the honour and privilege to serve my state of birth” and pledged to work towards the actualization of the vision of the governor to take Enugu S madetate to the next level.
