Austin Umahi Rejects Appointment As RMAFC Secretary
President Muhammadu Buhari had on Wednesday approved the appointment of three people into three government agencies as executive officers.
Among them is Austin Umahi who was to serve as the secretary of RMAFC for an initial term of four years with effect from July 6.
However, in a statement on Thursday, Umahi rejected the appointment saying it’s for “job seekers” and retired civil servants, adding that anyone who is interested in the position should approach the Ebonyi governor.
He said, “I am honestly humbled by this show of love but regret to inform you that I declined the appointment. This is because it is best for job seekers, retired civil servants or anyone who loves the job.
“I am also convinced that at my age and work experience, it is not in doubt that I know what I want in life.
“Anyone interested in the position should not hesitate to approach our indefatigable governor to do the needful. This is because to my knowledge, the position is still vacant.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Autin Umahi had won the All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial ticket for Ebonyi south, but he relinquished the ticket for his brother, Governor David Umahi who lost his bid to be the presidential flag bearer of the party.
