Ojeyinka has been in the Anambra state public service system since 1995, when he completed his National Youth Service Corps scheme (NYSC) in the state.

He received the award as the best serving corps member during his service year, and was subsequently retained by the state government.

Speaking on his promotion, Ojeyinka said; “I am so excited to be considered. I don’t see this as a right but rather a rare privilege because so many brilliant officers also merited the promotion.

“I thank Mr Governor, Prof. Charles Soludo for this honour, and Ndi Anambra for all their love, kindness and support in my 29 years of living in Anambra State,” he said.

“I will repay the state with increased efficiency, productivity, transparency and fairness in my work.

“I thank my colleagues to, the Head of Service, Her Honour, Barrister Mrs Theodora Igwegbe for her wonderful support. I promise to live up to the great expectations”.
