Announcing the appointment, the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Simon Uchenna Ortuanya, disclosed that the decision was the outcome of the recent rigorous interview process conducted by UK Department for International Development (DFID) Consultants and Water Engineering Experts, for 16 candidates who applied for the post of Managing Director of the Corporation.

The SSG stated that Engr. Okwor, an indigene of Ikem in Isi-Uzo Local Government Area of the state, and an engineer by training, with over 30 years of experience in the management of projects in water, sanitation, environment and power, scored the highest points in the interview.

It would be recalled that Gov. Ugwuanyi’s administration in its sheer determination to comprehensively tackle the long-existing challenge of water supply in the state, which it inherited, recently constituted the Board of Enugu State Water Corporation, headed by a foremost consultant in the water industry and the first Managing Director of the corporation, Engr. Innocent O. Diyoke.

The state government also advertised for the post of Managing Director of the Corporation, to join the team for effective implementation of its agenda towards ensuring adequate supply of potable water in the state.
