Monday, June 20, 2016

Mark Okoye was earlier today sworn in by Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State as Commissioner for Budget, Economic Planning and Development Partners


Anambra State Governor,  Mr Willie Obiano has received world praises and commendation from Nigerians in home and diaspora for appointing the youngest Commissioner in Modern Nigeria.
Mark Okoye 30 , possesses a unique combination of experience spanning governance, policy formulation, public sector financing, public budget analysis and corporate finance. 



 Prior to his current role, he served in his current capacity for twenty (20) months as Special Adviser to the Governor. According to Nigerian existing laws, Anambra State House of Assembly refused to confirm him Commissioner at the age of 28 years when his name was first submitted. Governor Obiano assigned Advisory role to him and waited patiently until he clocks 30 years,  and his name resubmitted and confirmed by the same house in keeping to the law.





 Mark also served as a senior member of the investment banking division at Afrinvest (West Africa) Limited where he was instrumental in executing numerous capital raising and financial advisory transactions. Key transactions include the restructuring of UBA Plc in line with new Central Bank of Nigeria banking guidelines (2012), US$80mm debt and equity capital raising for Kano Shopping Mall (2012), the first and largest shelf registration in Nigeria, US$2.3bn Lagos State Government bond issuance program (2011).

Trust Naija babes to start checking his availability. Well sorry to burst your bubble girls, Mark has a lovely lady in his life Oooops. The beautiful lady below is his wife Philipa.




On June, 2015 he was appointed the Special Adviser to the Governor on Economic Planning and budget. He has just been made a Commissioner with same portfolio.

He is also Nicholas Okoye's cousin.

Meanwhile Senator Ben Murray-Bruce said the President and all Governors need to go to Anambra to study the secret for effectively running a government, pay staff without owing arrears and boost their local economy.

According to him;
The President and all Governors need to go to Anambra to study the secret for effectively running a government, pay staff without owing arrears and boost their local economy! This is why I advocate for True Federalism. It will bring about the type of competition that will lead to more states becoming like Anambra.
Anambra is not an oil producing state yet it does not take loans or owe workers salary. It has made the best improvements in education in the whole nation and the state government even supports private schools financially. Look at those states that thrive in our false federalism by depending solely on federal allocation. They are broke, cannot pay salaries and are so debt ridden, banks will not lend to them any more. Anambra proves that True Federalism can work in Nigeria.
