Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, yesterday said that it is his utmost desire for all communities in the state to live in peace and harmony for steady progress and development of the state.
Ugwuanyi stressed that the biggest gift he needs from the people of Enugu State is peace.
The governor made the assertion when the people of Mgbowo Community in Awgu Local Government Area of the state visited him at the Government House, Enugu, to appreciate his good works and peaceful disposition as well as his considerable concern for their well-being and concerted efforts in addressing myriads of their socio-economic challenges.
The people of Mgbowo, led by the Commissioner for Science and Technology, Sir Obi Kama, visited to declare their unflinching support for the Ugwuanyi-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leadership in Enugu State, the governorship candidate of the PDP in the 2023 general election, Peter Ndubuisi Mbah, his running mate, Ifeanyi Ossai, and the candidates of the party for Enugu West Senatorial District, Aninri/Awgu/Oji-River Federal Constituency and Awgu South Constituency, Engr. Osita Ngwu, Engr. Anayo Onwuegbu and Tony Nwankwo, respectively.
Thanking them for their solidarity and support for his administration, the PDP governorship candidate and other candidates of the party, Ugwuanyi who is the leader of the PDP in Enugu State and South-east geo-political zone as well as the candidate of the party for Enugu North Senatorial District, urged the delighted people of Mgbowo to hold on tightly to their belief in the PDP, reassuring them that Barr. Mbah and Barr Ossai will build on the foundation his administration has laid, which is anchored on peace and good governance.
Earlier, the President General of Ekpulambo Mgbowo, Chief Sir Collins Okelu, stated that “Mgbowo Ward has benefited so much from your purposeful and people-oriented leadership in the state in so many areas.”
Chief Okelu listed some of the governor’s remarkable achievements in Mgbowo Ward to include “construction of ultramodern classroom blocks at Community Primary School Ezioha Mgbowo, upgrading of Technical and Vocational College, Imama Mgbowo to one of the best and most sought after in Enugu West, creation of access road from Old Road, Amaiyi Mgbowo to Enugu-Port Harcourt expressway, construction of three solid box culverts linking the three villages of Ekpulator Mgbowo, Inyi, Ezioha and Imama, and laying of asphalt on Amata Mgbowo road project attracted by Major General F. Azubuike Azinta.”
Appreciating Ugwuanyi for appointing their sons and daughters into sensitive government positions, the President General said:
“Mgbowo people owe you a huge debt of gratitude and be rest assured that this debt will be paid with our block votes in next year’s general election for the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Peter Ndubuisi Mbah and his deputy, Barr. Ifeanyi Ossai; Senatorial Candidate, Engr. Osita Ngwu, House of Representatives candidate, Engr. Anayo Onwuegbu and House of Assembly candidate, Hon. Tony Nwankwo.
“We have neither gold nor silver to give you in return for your continuous magnanimity to our people, therefore, our visit to you today is to pledge our unalloyed support to you and our candidates.”
This came as numerous support groups equally visited Ugwuanyi to declare their support and solidarity for the governor, the PDP governorship candidate, Barr. Mbah, his running mate, Barr. Ossai, and all other candidates of the party, pledging to mobilise the electorate to vote for the PDP and its candidates at the polls.
