CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR BRAND NEW SSG AND KUDOS TO GOVERNOR NWIFURU
This is a bold step in the right bold direction. It is a radical departure from the past as it signposts a change of narrative for excellence as anchored on professionalism and competence. That’s the kernel of Governor Nwifuru’s leadership ideology.
While I congratulate this cerebral professor of philosophy and logic on her well deserved meritorious appointment at the echelon of our current leadership organogram and hierarchy as Secretary to the State Government, SSG, it is also imperative that I commend and applaud the genius of foresight and forthrightness exhibited most profoundly by the towering Governor in our present republican democracy, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, who is not resting on his oars in his expeditious harvest of professionals in keeping with his promise and avowal.
Prof. Umezuruike will certainly bring her immense erudition and administrative acumen garnered over the years at the Ivory Tower to bear impressively on her new and revered office for the good governance of the good people of Ebonyi State.
This is one appointment that has stretched Governor Nwifuru’s political ligament beyond the limits of the ruling party as opposition forces, including the most horridly cynical of them; are hailing the appointment across the streets of Mark Zuckerberg and other social media milieu in what looks like “hosanna hosanna”.
Legitimacy; as modern democracy espouses, has its ultimate source from the masses. This singular appointment has earned greater opposition support for the government of the day. It’s a golden goal. His Excellency sets the pace. Governor Nwifuru has won a locus classicus! He should be emulated by his colleague governors of other States as a proven trailblazer.
May God continue to give our dear Governor the wisdom to make the right choices.
God bless His Excellency and indeed all of us.
