Ugwuanyi restates commitment to affordable healthcare in Enugu
Community lauds gov, commissioner over land administration
Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has restated that quality, accessible and affordable healthcare delivery to his subjects will always top his administration’s eight-point agenda.
Ugwuanyi said this when he flagged off the distribution of medical supplies received from Ugo’s Touch of Life Foundation (U-TOLF), the pet project of his wife, Mrs. Monica Ugwuanyi, for mothers and children in the state.
Vitamin Angels, a charity providing lifesaving vitamins to mothers and children at risk of malnutrition, donated the commodities to U-TOLF to provide succour for vulnerable pregnant women, nursing mothers and children under five years.
Flagging off the exercise, the governor stated that his administration’s efforts in ensuring that mothers, newborns and under-five children get the best healthcare have been given a boost by the gesture.
He commended the foundation and the charity for their years of partnership in providing succour to women and children in the state.
MEANWHILE, Umunnugwu Amechi Uwani Community in Enugu South Council has canvassed support for the governor and his Commissioner for Lands and Urban Development, Victor Nnam, in their efforts to reposition the state, especially on land administration.
After their prayer rally in honour of the governor and their son, Nnam, they vowed not to watch certain individuals paint the duo in a bad light, following their insistence that those who must acquire land for development purposes in the state must follow due process.
The group strongly condemned “witch-hunting and blackmail” against the duo over the Centenary City land, which the government withdrew its certificate of occupancy (C of O) a few months ago.
In a statement, chairman of the community, Christopher Okenwa, and secretary, James Ani, decried the desperate bid by certain persons to covet lands in the community.
