Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State has appointed Anambra-born former mayor of London, Ernest Ezeajughi, as his chief of staff.
Soludo has also appointed Ben Chiobi as his special adviser on security and Richard Madiebo as chairman, Anambra State Internal Revenue Service.
Ezeajughi was elected mayor of the London Borough of Brent on April 16, 2019. Before becoming a mayor, Mr Ezeajughi, a strong member of British Labour Party, was elected councillor in Britain in 2014.
The 62-year-old chief of staff was the chairman of the British chapter of Nigeria’s All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) between 2010 and 2012.
This has brought the total number of appointments in Soludo’s government to six. Those appointed earlier are Osita Chukwulobelu, a professor, as secretary to the state government, Chukwudi Okoli as the accountant general, and Chinedu Nwoye, appointed as the deputy chief of staff/state chief of protocol.
