Ekweremadu’s zone opts to purchase Ugwuanyi’s 2019 Nomination Form

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi
The people of Enugu West Senatorial District, have opted to purchase the Peoples Democratic Party’s 2019 governorship nomination form for Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, in reconfirmation of their earlier endorsement of the governor’s re-election.

Deputy Senate President,  Ike Ekweremadu, who represents the District in the National Assembly, conveyed the unanimous decision of the zone to Gov. Ugwuanyi at the inauguration of Gburugburu Movement Awgu Local Government Area and endorsement rally/civic reception in honour of the governor by the enthusiastic people of the council, who defied heavy rains to participate in the rich and colorful event.

Senator Ekweremadu reassured Gov. Ugwuanyi of “the total support of the entire Enugu West Senatorial District”.

Ekweremadu disclosed that nobody from the district would contest against the governor, stressing that Governor Ugwuanyi has performed creditably well in office; entrenched peace, security and political stability in the state, and deserves a second term, accordingly.

It would be recalled that the people of Enugu North Senatorial District had in their recent endorsement rally for Gov. Ugwuanyi, equally agreed to purchase his party’s nomination form, in appreciation of his remarkable achievements in office.

In a related development, the people of Nkpologu in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area, hometown of the Senator representing Enugu North Senatorial District, Senator Chukwuka Utazi, also at a civic reception in honour of Gov. Ugwuanyi unanimously endorsed him for a second term in office for his unprecedented achievements in the state.

The jubilant people of the community said the governor deserves a second term in office, stating that despite the fact that Enugu State is “being classified among the weak states in terms of revenue base” , the governor through his sheer dexterity and administrative ingenuity has placed the state “high among the high earners in internally-generated revenue, as the FIRS recently acknowledged”.

In an address delivered on behalf of the people of Nkpologu by Sir. Ofordile Okafor, SAN, the community added that in spite of the state “being in the lower rungs of beneficiaries from the Federation account, Governor Ugwuanyi has ensured that salaries are paid before the 25th day of every month, a no mean achievement, in an economy struggling to stay afloat”.

According to the community, “While other states are retrenching and reducing their workforce, Governor Ugwuanyi is employing, especially teachers and specialized services, to improve the quality of the personnel in the service delivery sectors of the state”.

The people also appreciated the governor for his educational policies, which they said ensured “the return of the multi-campus structure of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology to Nsukka and Nkpologu”, pointing out that he has also carried out massive infrastructural developments across the nooks and crannies of the state.

It would be recalled that the governor had commissioned the ultra-modern civic centre in Enugu-Echi Ihe, Awgu Local Government Area, constructed with the first tranche of N5 million each recently released to the 450 autonomous communities in the state to execute development project of their choice.

Gov. Ugwuanyi had recently launched a grassroots development programme tagged “one community, one project”, which earmarked N10 million for each community in the state to carry out a project of their choice according to their peculiar needs to ensure that there is government presence in all the communities in Enugu State.

The ultra modern civic centre in Ihe was constructed with the first tranche of N5 million of the N10m.
