Enugu @ 29: Nnia Nwodo Makes Remark On Gov. Ugwuanyi
Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has on Saturday joined the highest Igbo body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, to commemorate the 29th anniversary of the state.
Chief Nnia Nwodo, the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, while speaking on occasion, commended Gov. Ugwuanyi for his good governance and peace the people of the state enjoys.
He further commended the governor for not playing partisan politics nor segregate, but instead, he has been a leader carrying everyone along.
Nnia Nwodo used the opportunity to highlight some of the governor’s achievements despite the meager resources in the state.
He disclosed that Enugu State has always been an investment-friendly state that attracts several investors, making the state among the top six states in the country that can survive without federal allocation. He also pointed out that Enugu State is the only state in the South-East region to achieve such a feat.
“There is no other state in the country that has paid December salary two times except Enugu State. We have noticed with admiration the emphasis of your capital development. I noticed the number of primary and secondary schools in all the local government areas of the state, renovated every year under your administration. I went to spy at what your administration did at Ekulu Primary School, GRA, Enugu, it is amazing. What progresses the world today is education. I noticed the number of general hospitals and health centers springing up in the rural areas”. Nnia Nwodo said
On the recent clash in the state, Chief Nwodo commended the governor for his prompt response in visiting the scene of the incident at Emene and summoning an emergency security meeting. He urged the governor to ensure that such an experience doesn’t happen again and that justice is done.
