Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State, on Monday, redeployed his former deputy, Mr. Sunday Onyebuchi, to the state civil service. The governor announced the redeployment of the former deputy governor to the civil service as a Deputy Director on Grade Level 15. Onyebuchi was in the civil service before being appointed to political office by the Nnamani administration. He was impeached last week as the deputy governor by the state House of Assembly.
His successor, Rev. Raphael Ifeanyi Nwoye, took his oath office the same day Onyebuchi’s redeployment was announced. Nwoye took his oath of office at a ceremony held at the EXCO Chambers of the Government House, Enugu.
Nwoye, the new deputy, was cleared by the House last Thursday. His oath of office was administered by the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Innocent Umezulike.
Governor Chime congratulated the new deputy governor and expressed hope that his coming on board will ensure a smooth running of the government machinery.
“Drawing the analogy of a broken down vehicle, we have just replaced a bad spark plug, the vehicle is repaired and journey will be smooth again,” said Chime.
Nwoye expressed gratitude to God and to Governor Chime for the opportunity to serve in his new capacity. He pledged his support and commitment to ensure that Enugu people continued to enjoy the benefits of good governance.
