Abia State former Commissioner for Information Hon. John Okiyi who in a recent cabinet reshuffle few days ago moved to Trade and Investment ministry has handed over to his successor. 

According to his parting post monitored by investigatorsnews, it says;

"Earlier today, I handed over to Barr Eze Chikamnayo as the new Commissioner for Information and Strategy, with the able assistance of the Permanent Secretary, hardworking staff of the ministry, and walked across to the Ministry of Trade and Investment to resume as the substantive Commissioner." 

Hon Okiyi further stated that, "only God can clearly state how grateful I am to the staff, colleagues at the Ministry of Infornation and members of the media team as well as the staff of BCA, Government Press and Ambassador Newspapers."

According to the new Trades and Investment Commissioner, he said he will forever be indebted to Journalists and bloggers in Abia State and the Media in general across the country for showing him unprecedented support beyond his wildest expectations, praying God to bless them all real good.

Hon. John Okiyi poured encomium on Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, PhD, his wife, children, relations and well wishers saying, they have shown him tremendous love and support throughout his sojourn in public service. In his word, he said "I guess this is not yet the time to speak to that, but to say thanks a million for all your love and kindness."

The new Trade and investment boss also thanked Abia Dep. Governor Ude Oko Chukwu, PhD, whom he described as an elder brother and members of his family, as well as his colleagues in the last State executive council saying, they were immensely supportive of his previous assignment. 

Chief Okiyi went on in his eulogy, appreciating Senator T.A. Orji Ochendo and the Speaker Abia House of Assembly, Hon. Chinedum Orji and his family, other members of the State House of Assembly and Abia political stakeholders including, leaders in Abiriba, thanking them to have massively supported his work in information management. 

Still in appreciation, Hon. Okiyi continued "those who worked closely with me, I want to thank you specially and ask you to keep pushing because we are yet to apprehend. As disciplined infornation and media managers, I expect you to give equal and even more support to my successor. You guys are simply the best to work with and I will miss you all. Of course, you already know I won’t interfere with the work of my successor as that is not my style, so I encourage you to work diligently with him and avoid coming to tell me anything happening there." He added.

"To my people my people, it is still Youth O’clock even in the ministry of trade and investment, let’s keep the flag flying and achieve more together for our dear state and to the glory of God. 

Let’s just say I thank all the good people who supported us to succeed even though I can’t name them one by one for obvious reasons but most especially I thank the good people of Abia State who daily pray and supported the government of Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, he will never disappoint you" he said.

Concluding Chief Okiyi said "Permit me to stop and get to work in the ministry of Trade and Investment where very wonderful people are already waiting for us to work together and deliver on a remodeled Ariaria International Market and Ahia Ohuru Market, among others, without unduly punishing our hardworking people, let’s move." 

The former Information Commissioner has since moved to his new office and commenced operations as the helmsman for Trade and Commerce ministry □ END
