Ikpeazu, who gave the charge at Government House, Umuahia, during the swearing-in ceremony of newly appointed Commissioner and 17 Transition Committee chairmen and their deputies, noted that their presence has closed the vacuum that had existed in the LGAs, adding that their coming on board at this time is very auspicious as it is election period.
The governor informed them that he expected them to switch into action immediately and ensure that they deliver the PDP in the coming elections.
He urged them to carry the stakeholders along and avoid rancour within the ranks of the political class and also challenged the deputies to support and complement the efforts of their bosses.
Ikpeazu equally enjoined the new commissioner of Youths to bring his ingenuity and wealth of experience to bear in ensuring robust policies that would better the lots of Abia youths.
He charged him to liaise properly with the Federal Government and other relevant agencies to bring a ray of light to youths in the state.
