Soludo appoints Osun, Abia indigenes as permanent secretaries

Chukwuma Soludo, governor of Anambra, has appointed Bayo Ojeyinka, an Osun indigene, as a permanent secretary in the state civil service.

Soludo also appointed Joachin Achor, a native of Abia state, as a permanent secretary.

Ojeyinka has been in the Anambra public service since 1995 when he completed his National Youth Service Corps scheme (NYSC) in the state.

At the end of the service year, he was awarded the best-serving corps member in the state and got automatic employment in the civil service.


“I am so excited to be considered. I don’t see this as a right but rather a rare privilege because so many brilliant officers also merited the promotion,” Ojeyinka was quoted as saying in reaction to the appointment.

“I thank Mr Governor, Prof. Charles Soludo, for this honour, and Ndi Anambra for all their love, kindness and support in my 29 years of living in Anambra State.”

His appointment breaks the traditional practice of reserving top civil service positions for indigenes and demonstrates the governor’s willingness to utilise talent from all corners of Nigeria.
