Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has been described as the legend of democracy day in Nigeria going by his achievements in office so far.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor, Walter Ozioko who made this statement, weekend, said that Governor Ugwuanyi showed that by moving round the state inspecting projects on democracy day while others were partying and enjoying.
According to him, it is fascinating and most thrilling that while other leaders in Nigeria see democracy day as a day for enjoying different delicacies and partying in different Government lodges in Nigeria, his Excellency, Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi defined the day as a day of celebrating the gains of democracy by moving round the state even till odd hours, inspecting and commissioning projects for the betterment of Enugu people.
He further said: “What Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi demonstrated is exemplary and should be emulated by other leaders in Nigeria. The workaholic law maker turned Governor is a super leader who has shown by his good works in Enugu state that governance is not about being in power but about the governed getting the dividends of leadership.
“For five years running, Enugu state has witnessed unparalleled infrastructural development like the provisions of good road networks in all the nooks and crannies of the state, educational facilities among others. While many states have forgotten other projects and concentrated on covid-19, Ugwuanyi who is fighting covid-19 with heavy might also feels that life must go on by providing other social amenities. “
Ozioko noted that the most recent development was that an ultra modern hospital would be built in all local governments in the state courtesy of Ugwuanyi’s administration and stated that above all, security of life and properties is assured in Enugu state. “He is indeed elevating democracy to the next level in Africa. He remains a sound democrat and should be applauded for demonstrating that the people of Enugu state matter to him so much.”
