*The Enugu State Secretariat Annex, Ede-Oballa, Nsukka*

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State on Friday inaugurated the Enugu State Secretariat Annex, an iconic and befitting edifice on three floors with 27 offices and other ancillary facilities, located at Ede-Oballa, Nsukka Local Government Area.

Governor Ugwuanyi, who received accolades from the civil servants through the Head of Service, Mr. Ken Chukwuegbo and the host community, Ede-Oballa, through Chief Engr. Vita Abba and the traditional rulers of the four autonomous communities, for his vision, foresight and timely actualisation of the project, said that the operationalisation of the State Secretariat Annex has reduced the travel distance of staff of the state’s public service zonal offices who no longer need to travel to Enugu on a regular basis for the conduct of their activities.

The governor added that the secretariat annex has also reduced cost, turnaround time and engendered efficiency in their operations.

Enugu North zonal offices of some Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) have been relocated to the newly constructed State Secretariat Annex, Nsukka, for cohesion and proper coordination of government’s administrative activities.

Dignitaries at the event include the Member representing Nsukka East Constituency in the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Chinedu Nwamba, Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Greg Nnaji, former Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Dan Shere, Chairman of Nsukka LGA, Barr. Walter Ozioko, Chairman, Civil Service Commission, Mr. Robinson Odoh, Deputy Chairman of Nsukka LGA, Mr. Sylvanus Asogwa, and former Commissioner for Housing, Hon. Ogbo Asogwa, Prof. Felix Asogwa, clergymen, traditional rulers, youth and women groups, among others
