Earlier, Dr Peter Akwe (PDP-Obi 1), from the constituency where the SUBEB chairman hails from, appealed to his colleagues to confirm the SUBEB Chairman, considering his positive contributions to the development of the education sector and the state at large.

“He is doing well and if given another opportunity as SUBEB chairman, he will take the education sector to greater heights,” he said.

The Chairman, House Committee on Education, Daniel Ogazi, said the SUBEB chairman was committed to the development of the education sector in the state, while calling on his colleagues to confirm him in the interest of the education sector and for the over all development of the state.
