A new governor was installed in Abia State yesterday, 18th December 2020. He is Master Nicholas Ogunji, a 17 years old senior student at Adventist Technical Secondary School, Ohafia. Master Nicholas will be the governor of the state for only 24 hours.

As a one-day governor, he will spend some of the day in the governor’s office and on his official seat and spend the rest of the day performing the governor’s official duties within and outside the government house.

Earlier in the day, Master Nicholas was conducted round the government house by His Excellency, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu. He was later driven in the governor’s official car to Afaraukwu Correctional Center where he exercised his power as governor to set some inmates free.

The one-day governor program was introduced by Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu as a way of educating young people on governance and democratic principles. Master Nicholas Ogunji is the third youth to become a one-day governor in Abia State since Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu became the governor of Abia State.

        Interesting! Thank you for keeping us updated on happening around the country. It is rather unfortunate that rather than face governance and provide basic essential services in the state, the Governor is busy chasing shadow. The whole process of one day student Governorship is a charade of cluelessness that has characterized our system in Nigeria. All such nonsense must stop forthwith.

        The Governor should develop Abia State by providing a conducive learning environment for all the students, get the roads fixed, let there be light, equipped our hospitals and provide all that is necessary for the good of all.

        It is instructive for our Governor and others who may be doing that to know that there are better ways of teaching students about good governance and leadership style other than what we have seen displayed. If the Governor is tired of performing the duty of his office, he should constitutional handover to his deputy to perform the duty of Governorship for that one day. Thank you.
