Governor Soludo Picks Former London Mayor As Chief Of Staff

Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo, on Monday announced the appointment of a former mayor of London, Anambra-born Ernest Ezeajughi, as chief of staff.

Mr Soludo also announced the appointment of Ben Chiobi as his special adviser on security and Richard Madiebo as chairman, Anambra State Internal Revenue Service.

Mr Ezeajughi was elected mayor of the London Borough of Brent on April 16, 2019, according to Black Past, an American online “reference center” dedicated to African American history.

Before becoming a mayor, Mr Ezeajughi, a strong member of British Labour Party, was elected councillor in Britain in 2014.

He won re-election in 2018 to retain his seat in a white-dominated political environment. He was also elected Deputy Mayor of Brent, months later, according to the reference centre.

The 62-year-old chief of staff was the chairman of the British chapter of Nigeria’s All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) between 2010 and 2012.

Mr Soludo won the Anambra governorship election under the platform of APGA which has remained the dominant party in Anambra politics.
