Peace, stepping stone to rapid development, says Ugwuanyi
Eha-Alumona endorses gov for second term
Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has emphasised the importance of peace in the progress of Enugu State, saying it is a stepping stone to rapid development.Ugwuanyi declared himself as a governor for everybody, irrespective of class, religion or political leanings.
According to a statement, the governor spoke at a civic reception and endorsement rally for his re-election in 2019 by the people of Eha-Alumona in Nsukka Local Government Area.
He commended the chairman of the state’s Internal Revenue Services, Prince Emeka Odoh, who is also an illustrious son of the community, for his outstanding performance in office, which he said was responsible for the significant increase in the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of the state.
Ugwuanyi said it was because of the increase in the state’s IGR that his administration was able to pay June salaries of the workers without receiving the federal allocation for the month.
The governor also applauded the people of Eha-Alumona for the peace and unity in the community, reassuring them that his administration would continue to take measures that would address their needs and impact positively on their lives.
The Secretary of the Central Planning Committee, Rodrick Ugwu, said the community commended Ugwuanyi “for the wonderful transformational job you are doing in Enugu State.” “We are witnesses to the massive infrastructural revolution that your government is implementing in Enugu State.”A chieftaincy title and an ‘Ofo’ (a symbol of authority) were conferred on and presented to the governor by the community after he was unanimously endorsed for a second term in office.
