Many journalists are now flocking around Enugu State Governor, Honourable Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi as well as close associates and relations to be appointed as the Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Nigerian Pilot has gathered.
It was also gathered that journalists within Enugu and beyond are in the race lobbying for the same position.
A source told Nigerian Pilot that Ugwuanyi who was in the House of Representatives for twelve years will likely pick his Chief Press Secretary from either Abuja or Lagos journalists for the position.
It was further gathered that Ugwuanyi may not be in a hurry to pick a new Chief Press Secretary but elect to retain his predecessor’s CPS, Chukwudi Achife for continuity sake.
However, before now, one of the correspondents in one of the national dailies is believed to be Ugwanyi’s choice candidate because of their affinity said to be on for a long time.
Ironically, Ugwuanyi was said to have apprised some journalists that nothing would make him choose that particular correspondent touted as the choice.
Nigerian Pilot was informed by some unconfirmed sources that Ugwuanyi might settle for publisher of a news magazine based in Lagos for the CPS position.
“I don’t think Ugwuanyi will choose his CPS from outside Nsukka,” one of the correspondents told Nigerian Pilot.
