More groups endorse Ugwuanyi for second term



FORMER Commissioners in Enugu State, under the auspices of Forum of Enugu State Former Commissioner (FEFCOM), has unanimously endorsed Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for a second term in office.
Members of the forum, who conveyed the message to Gov. Ugwuanyi when they paid him a solidarity visit at the Government House, Enugu, stated that the decision was in appreciation of his administration’s giant development strides, peace and security initiatives, and all-inclusive policy.
They said they were highly impressed that Gov. Ugwuanyi had kept faith with his promise of seamless transition by continuing with most of the developmental policies of his predecessor, especially the Visit Every Community (VEC) Initiative, which he has expanded by creating a full directorate with one of them as the head.
The group, which has the immediate past Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Okey Ani and his Rural Development counterpart, Dr. Eric Oluedo, as conveners, added that the governor has been ensuring prompt payment of workers’ salaries and retirees’ pensions resulting in the payment of one extra full month salary to every Civil/Public Servant in Enugu State to celebrate the 2017 Christmas”.
They disclosed that Gov. Ugwuanyi’s administration has completed the Enugu State Diagnostic Centre and has also commenced the construction of 200-bed Igboano Specialist Hospital, Enugu, noting that the initiation of the International Medical City, Agu-Ekwegbe, is very impressive.
The former cabinet members also applauded the governor for constructing five ultra-modern fire service stations across the three senatorial districts of the state after 56 years, as well as the unprecedented employment of over 4000 primary and secondary school teachers.
On politics, the ex-Commissioners said: “Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has through his political sagacity brought stability in the polity of Enugu State and has gone ahead to reach out to other political parties other than his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in his firm belief that governance is about the people and not based only on political leanings”.
According to them, “the grant of N10 million to each of the 450 autonomous communities in Enugu State for the execution of projects that are dear to the hearts of their people and the immediate release of the sum of N5million as part of the grant, is in consonance with Governor Ugwuanyi’s development thrust”.
It will be recalled that other groups like the Ebeano family, the political platform of former Enugu State governor, Dr. Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, the Association of Executive Assistants in all the wards in the state, Tricycle operators, Association of Enugu State Pensioners, Ogbete Traders Association, Enugu Market Women Association and Enugu State Science Teachers Association had endorsed the governor for a second term in office.
