THE traditional ruler of Enugwu-Ukwu, Igwe Ralph Ekpe has expressed confidence in the personalities of the members of the 80- man committee set up to oversee the smooth governorship transition in Anambra state.

 Igwe Ekpe noted that the Dr. Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili- led team will do well in fine-tuning strategies to assist the incoming Prof. Chukwuma Soludo administration in putting the right pegs in right holes.

 In line with the principle of cutting the cost of governance in the present harsh economic realities in Nigeria, the royal father expressed concern on the numerical strength of the transition team which financial expenses to take care of their logistic needs will tell on the economy of the state.

 According to him, a 40- man team will comfortably do what an 80- man team can do since their role is advisory and not geared towards enhancing the revenue profile of the state.

 Igwe Ekpe expressed belief that the incoming Soludo administration will improve the road network in the state, usher in better sanity in some sectors of the economy, and will instil more discipline in the state motor parks.

He further spoke on the success of the 64th ” Igu aro’ and the 11th since his ascending on the throne of the Enugwu -Ukwu kingdom, and used the forum to call for the centralisation of the festival among the Igbo communities in the state to promote their cultural heritage.

 In a related development, the Awka zonal Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association, Dr. Emma Umenweke, a former Chairman, Awka Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association, Emmanuel Okechukwu Junior, and the traditional prime minister of Ebenebe, Chief Joe Nwegwu also spoke on the 80- man composition of the Anambra State transition team and passed a vote of confidence on the calibre of professionals and technocrats selected for the assignment.
