Governor-elect Peter Mbah has inaugurated over 60 transition committee members in Enugu.

This is contained in a statement on Monday by the head of the Peter Mbah Media Office, Dan Nwomeh.

According to the statement, the committee includes internationally-recognised technocrats, good governance, transparency and accountability advocates, financial and management experts, entrepreneurs, and tech and innovation specialists.

The governor-elect said the transition committee would help articulate and fine-tune the incoming administration’s “implementable and impactful development plan” when it assumed office in May.

“The transition committee members would also streamline the State development plan in line with my ‘Social Charter’ with Ndi Enugu. The Charter aims at repositioning the state as one of the top three states in Nigeria in terms of gross domestic product per capita while addressing poverty, unemployment, and insecurity,” Mr Mbah said.

He added that Ike Chioke, an engineer, investment banker, and group managing director of Afrinvest (West Africa) Ltd, would chair the committee.

Other committee members are the country director of DAI Nigeria, an international development company, Joe Abah; the managing director of the United Kingdom Nigeria Infrastructure Advisory Facility (UK-NIAF), Chidi Onyia; the former power minister, Chinedu Nebo; Joy Ezeilo; the former inspector general of police, Ogbonnaya Onovo; and an executive director at First Bank, Christy Okoye.
