Mustafa Chike-Obi to Head ANSIPPA

By Jude Atupulazi

Mr Mustafa Chike-Obi has been appointed the chairman of the board of Anambra State Promotion and Protection Agency (ANSIPPA). This follows the reconstitution of the board by the Anambra State Government.

A press statement signed by the Anambra State Commissioner for Information, Sir Paul Nwosu, and made available to Fides, said Chike-Obi, currently the chairman of Fidelity Bank Plc, had held very top managerial and leadership positions in reputable global investment banking and management firms.

He was the first Managing Director of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON). Chike-Obi holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Masters in Business Administration from Stanford School of Business.

The former Anambra State Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Mr. Mark Okoye, is now the Managing Director of ANSIPPA.

Other recently appointed members of the board include Mr Christian Udechukwu, Dr Amechi Marcel Ofomata, Dr Emeka Okeke and Mr Sam Chidoka.

The statutory members of the board from government’s stable are the Attorney General, Commissioners for Finance, Commerce and Industry, Budget and Economic Planning, and Lands and Survey.

It will be recalled that when all the boards and governing councils were dissolved a month ago, the governor assured that they would be reconstituted soon and it seems he is beginning to make good his promise.
