One of Nigeria's finest Comedian and Actor, Mr. Kingsley Ogbonna, popularly known as Dauda, has been appointed Senior Special Adviser on Arts and Tourism to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State.

Dauda, a Mass Communication graduate of Federal Polytechnic Oko, Anambra State, hails from Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State.

Speaking after a meeting with Governor Ikpeazu at the Abia State Governor's Lodge in Aba, the Comic-Actor said his appointment is a call to service.

His words: "This administration in Abia State under Governor Ikpeazu is condemned to repositioning the state, and I have just been called to join the team to help the Governor to interpret his dreams for the state.

"It is a call to service, and I will give my best. Those of us who started what is known as Nollywood and entertainment in Nigeria today know that Aba played a major role in production, promotion and marketing of our works, but suddenly and somehow, Aba was no longer in the picture, but Governor Ikpeazu is poised to reverse the trend and we are here to support him and make it work.

"I thank the Governor for the opportunity to serve and I promise to mobilize and galvanize my brothers and sisters in the entertainment industry to return Aba and Abia in general to its pride of place as far as tourism and arts are concerned". Dauda said.
