Anambra finance commissioner resigns




Onejeme was appointed Commissioner for Finance by the state Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, at the beginning of the administration in 2022.

He had also previously served as a commissioner during the administration of the immediate past governor Willie Obiano.

It was gathered that personal and family circumstances warranted his resignation.

A statement by the Press Secretary to the Governor, Christian Aburime, on Thursday, said his resignation has been accepted by the governor.

Aburime said while accepting his resignation, Soludo commended his meritorious service to the government and the people of Anambra State.

The governor wrote, “On behalf of the government and great people of Anambra State, I wish to express our gratitude for your commitment, professionalism and great service to Anambra State over the past nine and half years as Commissioner.

“I particularly appreciate your services over the past year and five months as you worked diligently to facilitate a seamless transition from the previous administration to the current one.

“While we will miss your services, I appreciate your personal and family circumstances that warrant the resignation.

“Here is wishing you success in your future endeavours and hope that you will continue to avail your services in the development of Anambra/Nigeria in other spheres. With all best wishes.”

According to the release, the Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Mrs Chiamaka Nnake has been directed by the governor to oversee the ministry of finance until a substantive Commissioner is nominated to take over the ministry.”
