Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has appointed 600 aides designated as Executive Assistants to the Governor.
Though the appointments are yet to be formally made public, a highly placed Government House source told The Easterner that the appointment letters were already being prepared by the office of the secretary to the state government (SSG).
The source explained that the appointments are spread across the 260 electoral wards in the State, adding that there are at least two from of the wards.
On why the appointments have not been announced, the source explained that this was not likely to happen for reasons he refused to disclose. Previous appointments by the governor were usually announced repeatedly on state radio and television stations.
One of the appointees however told The Easterner that he received a text message from the chairman of his local government council inviting him to his office where he was informed of his appointment by the chairman, who showed him the list of the appointees.
Meanwhile, the appointees have been reporting to the Special Adviser (Political) to the Governor, in his office at the Old Regional House of Assembly Building in GRA, Enugu, where they were directed to present themselves for documentation.
