The Imo State House of Assembly has confirmed the appointment of Hon. Jones Uzoka as Chairman of Imo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (ISOPADEC).
We recall that the position of ISOPADEC Chairman had become vacant following the nomination of the occupant of that office Hon. Kama Nwauwa by President Muhammadu Buhari to Represent Imo State at the Board of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Hon. Chief Jones Uzoka was a Majority Leader of the 3rd Session of Imo State House of Assembly during the administration of Chief Evan Enwerem and also a former Board Chairman of ISOPADEC under the Ikedi Ohakim administration.
Hon. Jones Uzoka hails from oil rich community of Orsu-Obodo in Oguta LGA. Swearing-in ceremony is expected to take place early next week.
