Describing him as someone who leads from the front, Mr. Ememanka said the late Ogunji goes to where the work is and confront the challenge.

“One defining quality about Dr. Solomon Ogunji is his attitude to work.

“He leads from the front. Give him an assignment and go to sleep.

“Ogunji is a field person. He is not an office man. He goes to where the work is and confronts it head on.

“With his rather imposing physical frame, big, and at times, red eye balls and his thunderous voice, he is a nightmare to people who like to deface the environment and put up make shift shops at illegal places.

“He doesn’t just set up task forces, he leads them to work. He boldly confronts any person who is doing the wrong thing when it comes to issues of the Environment.

“He is an interesting man indeed and because most of our people hardly will comply with environmental regulations except they are pushed to, Ogunji is the perfect match in such circumstances.

“He is a huge asset to our State and this administration. Governor Okezie Ikpeazu trusts his work ethic and passion.

“Dr. Solomon Ogunji, Honorable Commissioner for Environment, Abia State.” he wrote on his Facebook page on 14th April 2020.
