The Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, C Don Adinuba has said that only twenty minutes will be put into his the inauguration ceremony of the Governor-elect, Prof. Charles Soludo on March 17, 2022.
He said that the era of hosting large crowd with ostentatious fanfare that is synonymous with inauguration of new governors in the state is over.
Adinuba said that Soludo would be kicking off with his work duties immediately after inauguration with a visit to Okpoko slum in Ogbaru Local Government Area of the state.
While noting that only 50 people would be invited to the event, the Commissioner added: “There is no room for an elaborate celebration because there would be only 50 persons that would be in attendance at the inauguration.
“Of course, there will be family members, party and officials who will be served finger foods, water and beverages.
“As a matter of fact, the entire ceremony would last for about 20 minutes and the governor would commence work immediately at Okpoko town in Ogbaru Local Government Area on that day.”
Confirming the Commissioner’s position, a media assistant to Soludo, Mr Joe Anatune, said that there would be no time to waste after the inauguration.
He said: “This inauguration will be different. One thing that is certain is that it will mark a change of power without the usual fanfare.”
