Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has formed a cabinet with the swearing in of 19 commissioners and other members of the State Executive Council.

The governor inaugurated the cabinet on Wednesday, 116 days after his inauguration on May 29, 2019 following criticisms of his leadership.

While swearing in the commissioners, Ugwuanyi said portfolios would be assigned at the end of a three-day strategic retreat for the exco members that would start on September 26, adding that his administration was in the fast track to achieve its electoral promises within the remaining period of his tenure.

The newly sworn-in commissioners included Chief Miletus Eze, Greg Nnaji, Chijioke Edeoga, Chidi Aroh, Prince Emeka Mamah, Mr Vitus Okechi, Mr Solomon Onah, Princess Peace Nnaji, Dr Charles O.C. Egumgbe, and Mathias Ekweremadu (Jnr.).
