Enugu PDP guber zoning: Nkanu People’s Assembly honours Ugwuanyi
Urges him to remain focused
The people of Nkanu land under the auspices of Nkanu People’s Assembly, yesterday, honoured Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State with the prestigious award of ‘Ekwueme of Nkanu land’ in recognition of his performance in office in spite of the nation’s economic challenges, as well as his adherence to established rotational zoning arrangement of the governorship position among the three senatorial districts of the state.
Presenting the award to Ugwuanyi at the Government House, Enugu, the National Secretary General of Nkanu People’s Assembly, Prof. Osita Ogbu, on behalf of the President General, HRH Igwe Ezeudo Nwobodo, and other members of the group, told Ugwuanyi that posterity would recognise the good works he is doing in the state.
Members of assembly thanked Ugwuanyi for the emergence of their son, Peter Mbah, as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu.
They said that they are highly delighted that the governor, in spite of “so much pressure,” kept faith with established rotational zoning of the governorship position, stressing “that after his tenure it will go to Nkanu land.”
Ogbu said: “This is why Nkanu People’s Assembly is giving you the award and we are calling you the ‘Ekwueme of Nkanu land.’ We love you today, we love you tomorrow and we will continue to love you.”
Describing Ugwuanyi as “the most security conscious governor in Nigeria and the greatest friend of the people,” Ogbu applauded the governor for his peace initiative, humility, open door policy and commitment to participatory democracy.
The group, therefore, urged Ugwuanyi to remain focused and committed, expressing confidence that the governor, through his political sagacity, will accomplish all the good works he has started.
