One of the leading opposition political parties in Enugu State, the United Progressive Party (UPP), has joined the league of 70 other political parties and groups to congratulate Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on his re-election as the governor of the state.
In a congratulatory message signed on behalf of the UPP by its State Chairman, Ken Onyekaonwu, which was presented to Gov. Ugwuanyi when members of the state and national leadership paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, the party told the governor that “your re-election was well deserved having spent the last four years of your life labouring hard to move Enugu State to an enviable height”.
Acknowledging that Gov. Ugwuanyi “toured the length and breadth of the state campaigning”, the UPP pointed out that “it is obvious that if indeed you have failed the people of Enugu State, they would certainly not have renewed your mandate as their governor”, stressing that “this however, well explains why your victory at the polls could be described as well deserved”.
“Your Excellency, a cycle has just been concluded, and our people have spoken through the inherent opportunity presented thereby, and their voice was made manifest in their support and votes to reelect you as the governor of our dear state for the next four years. May the good Lord guide and grant you the necessary wisdom and ability as you steer the ship of governance in our dear state for the next four years”, it stated.
Members of the delegation include the National Treasurer, Chief Flint Obiekwe; the Assistant National Secretary, Chief Don Nwabueze; the National Admin Officer, Chief David Ukeje and the Zonal Secretary, South East, Chief Nzeanochie Iweka, among others.
In a related development, the people of Nsukka Local Government Area leveraging on the euphoria of being the local government area in Enugu State that delivered the highest number of votes to Gov. Ugwuanyi in the election were also at the Government House, to congratulate him.
Led by the council chairman, Hon. Patrick Omeje, the jubilant people of the area who came in their numbers, thanked God for the governor’s resounding victory at the polls, stating that it did not come to them as a surprise.
Speaking, Hon. Omeje attributed the governor’s landslide victory to his sterling leadership qualities and remarkable achievements that have positively touched the lives of the people.
