On the tenure of Ugorji as Commissioner, Mr. Ohaja said that the community is proud of his (Ugorji’s) representation of Aboh Mbaise LGA in the first term cabinet of the governor.

The party commended the Commissioner for his loyalty and service to the governor and the state.

Speaking about Dr. Ugorji’s service and leadership, the Financial Secretary, Hon. Magnus Emenogu, told the Commissioner that he must stay involved in politics.

“You are a good and kind man; we want to continue learning from you; we want to continue riding on your coattails,” Hon. Emenogu said.
