Archbishop Chukwuma Extols Gov. Ugwuanyi’s Commitment To Citizens’ Welfare


By Stanley Nwanosike

Enugu  –   Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma has commended Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State on his commitment to citizens’ welfare.

The cleric specifically noted the governor’s efforts on payment of workers’ salaries and pensions as well as implementation of people’s oriented projects.

Chukwuma, who is the Archbishop of Anglican Arch-Diocese of Enugu, gave the commendation while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday.

He said that the leadership focus of the governor had created industrial/workers harmony with the government; which had eradicated workers’ demonstrations and strikes.

Chukwuma noted that Ugwuanyi had inspired the people through his humility, peaceful disposition, closeness to God and good governance; adding that the people would surely remember him for these legacies.

“The governor has been so friendly and takes everything so easy while showing great concern for people’s affairs and welfare.

“I have never seen any governor that is as friendly and open as this governor,’’ he said.

However, Chukwuma urged the governor not to be afraid to take tough decisions that are in the overall interest of the people.

“We laud Ugwuanyi for the courage in handling the problem of the New Artisan Market, Enugu.

“Sometime ago we were so much apprehensive of what will be his stand concerning this market.

“It was becoming a menace and den of Sodom with people taking laws into their hands culminating in the killing of a policeman in that market.

“We support the closure of the market and call for its relocation,’’ he said.

He urged the people to pay their taxes to improve the Internally Generated Revenue of the state for the government to continue on its developmental and people’s oriented projects.
