President Muhammadu Buhari last week forwarded the name of the former Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly Rt. Hon Amaechi Nwoha- a lawyer by profession to the National Assembly for confirmation as a Commissioner representing the South East zone in the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC).
Our correspondent from Abuja report that the Senate, last week, during plenary, received a formal request from President Muhammadu Buhari , to confirm the nomination of a former Speaker of the 6th IMHA, Rt. Hon. Amaechi Nwoha, as the Commissioner representing South-East Zone at the National Assembly Service Commission, (NASC).
Our reporter gathered that the request was contained in a letter dated July 9th, 2021, and read during the plenary session presided over by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan.
Muhammadu Buhari, in his letter to the Senate, as obtained by 4th Estate Reporters, said Nwoha’s nomination complied with the provisions of Section 3, sub-section 4 of the National Assembly Service Commission Act, 2014.
Rt. Hon. Amaechi Nwoha , a refined , articulate and boardroom political strategist has remained resourceful and relevant in the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Imo political leadership discuss, despite having left elective position since 2011 as Speaker of the 6th Imo State House of Assembly.
As an of the most experienced former legislator in the state, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha appointed Rt. Hon. Amaechi Nwoha as his Special Adviser on Legislative Matters and Government Liaison Officer to the State House of Assembly in 2011 immediately after his emergence as Imo governor; a position he held for three years until he was appointed Chairman of the Imo State Independent Electoral Commission (ISEC); between 2013 – 2018.
Until his nomination as a Federal Commissioner by President Muhammadu Buhari, Rt. Hon. Amaechi Nwoha has remained a committed party chieftain who worked very assiduously in assisting the APC to consolidate on its gains and political grips in Nwangele LGA and across the state.
While speaking in a telephone conversation with the Publisher of 4th Estate Reporters, Njoku Macdonald Obinna, the AmaIgbo -Nwangele born lawyer turned politician, thanked the Imo State governor, His Excellency, Sen. Hope Uzodimma for facilitating his appointment against all odds. He however, promised to use his good offices after confirmation by the Nigerian Senate to serve Imo State in particular, the South-East zone and the country at large; as he sees service to the people from the prism of being one of life’s most awesome privileges.
Meanwhile, ahead of his screening on the floor of the Senate, a rather friendly Amaechi Nwoha has been greeted with a deluge of congratulatory messages from political associates, party faithful, Nwangele and Imo leaders whose content of online goodwill messages show approval for a nomination nay appointment, well deserved.
