Bob-Manuel Udokwu, the Nollywood actor, has been appointed as the special adviser on entertainment, leisure, and tourism to Chukwuma Soludo, governor of Anambra state.


The appointment was announced in a statement released by Paul Nwosu, the state’s commissioner for information, on Tuesday.

Alongside Bob-Manuel, seven other appointments were announced as Christian Aburime gets the nod as the chief press secretary while Tochukwu Nweke was enlisted for the position of special legal adviser to the governor.

Chike Anyaonu was appointed the managing director of Anambra state housing development corporation, while Joe Anatune was named the head of Anambra state signage and advertising agency.


Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata becomes the chief executive officer of the state’s information and communication technology (ICT) agency, while Okey Ezeobi will resume as the general manager of the Anambra state bureau of public procurement.

The appointment makes it the third consecutive time Bob-Manuel has been named as a political appointee for three different Anambra state governors.

He was named the senior special assistant on creative media during Peter Obi’s tenure and was also tapped by Willie Obiano as an aide on the movie and entertainment industry.
