Igede monarch backs Tinubu, hails Omachi’s appointment as permanent secretary 

The Adirahu Ny’Igede, His Royal Highness CP Oga Ero (retd.), has commended the leadership forthrightness of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, describing the steps taken so far to stabilise the socio-economic and political environments in Nigeria as laudable.

The first class monarch gave the commendation in a statement obtained by Blueprint, Thursday, following the appointment of one of his subjects, Mr. Raymond Omenka Omachi, as federal Permanent Secretary.

The paramount ruler of the Igede nation specifically described as welcoming, President Tinubu’s efforts to unite the country as one indivisible entity, through his cross-country appointments of credible Nigerians to help fast track his Renewed Hope Agenda,  irrespective of their religious, ethnic or sectional backgrounds.

He said Mr Omachi’s elevation has given a ray of hope and sense of belonging to his people of Oju and Obi local government areas of Benue state, as well as those in Cross River state and other parts of the country, and enjoined all men of goodwill to join him in prayers for the peace and development of the country.

“It is heartwarming to see one of our sons appointed as a Federal Permanent Secretary. Mr. Omachi is one of our respected children. He is cool-headed, hardworking and humble. I have confidence in his capacity to help Mr. President’s administration to move forward,” CP Ero stated.

The monarch who retired as a Commissioner of Police before his selection as the Adirahu Ny’Igede a few years ago, used the opportunity to admonish President Tinubu on the need to secure Nigeria, in his words: “For real growth, development, peace and unity to thrive in our dear country.”

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had Monday sworn in  Mr. Raymond Omenka Omachi among seven other new permanent secretaries, who were recently appointed, after successfully scaling the Federal Civil Service selection process.

The new permanent secretaries included Ndakayo-Aishetu Gogo; Adeoye Adeleye Ayodeji; Rimi Nura Abba; Bako Deborah Odoh; Omachi Raymond Omenka; Ahmed Dunoma Umar; Watti Tinuke, and Ella Nicholas Agbo.
