Ugwuanyi tasks royal fathers on peace, security
• Makes First Appointment
Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has urged traditional rulers in the state to intensify efforts at enhancing peace and security in their communities.
He said this would speed up development in line with the renewed vigour of his administration to advance good governance.
Ugwuanyi, who made the appeal during a maiden town hall meeting with all recognised traditional rulers in the state after his second term inauguration, stressed the need to sustain existing peace and good governance.
The governor said some communities were yet to access the first tranche of N5m earmarked for the 458 autonomous communities to execute priority projects of their choice under the “One Community, One Project” initiative because of one crisis or another.
He advised leaders of affected communities to resolve their problems on or before the end of June, so that their people could benefit from the programme.
The governor frowned at the activities of some Neighbourhood Watch groups, saying they had deviated from their responsibilities.
