Woke who served as Chief of Staff to the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike when he was governor of Rivers State was last week appointed by President Bola Tinubu.

He succeeded Olufemi Odumosu as the MD of OORBDA.

But the groups in the Southwest where the agency is domiciled have rejected Woke’s appointment.

The Osun Pro-Tinubu Group, PATS 4 BATS “Passionately condemned the action taken by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” saying the “Appointment undermines the principle of regional inclusivity and demands a reconsideration of the decision to ensure fair representation within the authority.”

Also expressing their discontent at a gathering in Abeokuta, Ogun State, the CSSDG spokesperson, Adeyemi Akande, said “The appointment of Chukwuemeka Woke as MD is a blatant disregard for our regional representation. Past appointments have always been based on ethnic considerations, ensuring the appointed MDs are well-versed and understand the nuances of our region.”
