Awka, Dec. 13, 2021 (MOI) The Permanent Secretary Anambra State Ministry of Trade and Commerce, Mr Samuel Chinedu Ike has testified that God delivered him from an ugly situation, where a cockroach lived in his ears for four months.
According to him, that may have led to him going crazy if it entered his brain.
Mr Ike, a lawyer, said “a team of medical doctors worked on my ears for the period of two months, before succeeding in flushing it out.
The live cockroach, which had lived deep inside my ears for four months, was ready to climb into his brain and that could have spelt doom.
He explained this during a Thanksgiving Service in an appreciation of God for his appointment as a Permanent Secretary.
The event was held at St. James Anglican Church. Iyi-Owa Odekpe on Dec. 12.
In an interview after the church service, the outgoing Head of Service (HOS), Barr Harry Uduh expressed his happiness at being present in this Thanksgiving Service of the Perm Sec.
He said: “the Governor has done well to replenish the leadership of the service, which has depleted over time, on account of retirements, by appointing 10 new permanent secretaries.
“There is not going to be any vacuum at all; but a smooth transition from one HOS to another HOS in January, and from one governor to governor on March 17, 2022.
“I am satisfied that the service machinery of the state is intact.’’
Exchanging views with newsmen, the Anglican Bishop of Aguata Diocese, Rt. Rev. Dr Samuel Ezeofor expressed confidence in the next government to be led by Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo.
The prelate prayed to God that Soludo would bring to bear all experiences and connections garnered both in the academics and government as a former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor, to make positive changes in Anambra State. (MOI)
