Royal fathers endorse Enugu gov for second term
• Confer On Him Chieftaincy Title
All the traditional rulers of the 450 autonomous communities in Enugu State have endorsed Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for a second term in office.
The royal fathers, who converged on the popular Michael Okpara Square, Enugu, for what they described as a mega apolitical rally, said their decision was in line with their people’s assessment and endorsement of the governor’s re-election in 2019.
The monarchs said they were delighted that without a dissenting voice, all “especially the religious and members of the ecclesiastical orders; the elders; the political class; the professionals; the academic; the self-employed; the pensioners; the working class; the traders; artisans and the youth” have continued to extol Ugwuanyi’s virtues and performance in the discharge of his duties.
They disclosed: “All groups of people in Enugu State across political divides have separately approved the performance of Governor Ugwuanyi and have declared him their candidate for the 2019 gubernatorial election. This is why we called this mega apolitical grand rally to declare before Nigeria and the world that we stand head and shoulder with our people.”
At the colourful event, the traditional rulers, for the first time in the history of the state, collectively conferred on Ugwuanyi the chieftaincy title, ‘Omeluoha Gburugburu of Enugu State’, in demonstration of their love for him.
