Traditional rulers in Enugu North Senatorial District in Enugu State, yesterday, reaffirmed their unanimous endorsement of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for a second term.
The royal fathers, who met with governor Ugwuanyi at the Adada House, Nsukka Local Government Area, shortly before the Enugu north senatorial district mega rally of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), told the governor that they were impressed with his unprecedented achievements in the state, stressing that their Uzo-Uwani decision in 2018, on his re-election, stands.
Vice Chairman of Enugu State Council of Traditional Rulers and Chairman, Enugu North Zonal Council of Traditional Rulers, Igwe R.S.N Ezeh, thanked Ugwuanyi for his administration’s giant strides in the rural communities, especially the N10 million earmarked for each of the 458 autonomous communities in the state, to execute priority projects of their choice, under the “One Community One Project” programme.
Igwe Eze added that the Ofor which royal fathers had presented to the governor, as a symbol of their endorsement and support for his re-election, also, stands.
In his speech, the Patron of Enugu State council of traditional rulers, Igwe Osisi Idodo of Essodo, Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area, reassured Ugwuanyi that “all the traditional rulers will give you 99 percent votes of our subjects. You are not contesting election with anybody.”
The monarchs, who came out in their numbers, offered special prayers for the governor’s resounding victory at the polls, as well as successes in all his other endeavours and asked him to continue to count on their unalloyed support and cooperation.
