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.
