“Yet this existing tranquillity which has landed our dear party on the pedestal of true greatness is only another eloquent testimony of your dynamic and visionary leadership,” they said in the letter signed by the Co-ordinating Chairman, Ozo Ejike Okpe, and the Secretary, Chief Ibe Nnamani.
According to the party chairmen, Governor Ugwuanyi’s administration has fulfilled his campaign promises, the economic hardship notwithstanding, by paying workers’ salaries and pensioners their pensions and as well delivering massive infrastructure projects to the delight of the people of the state.
“The infrastructural transformation you machinated in all the zones of Enugu State has become way beyond what many believed was possible in this generation, a gesture that has engraved your name in indelible strokes that will last forever.
” The consistency with which you pay salaries and pensions in the face of the prevailing economic recession is marvellous, amazing and miraculous.
“Your Excellency, your administration has become the most all-inclusive one in our recent history as there hardly exists a community that is left out in the bounty of your appointments.
“Therefore, since your administration has become an administration of many firsts, we the ward chairmen of our great party in our dear state have, for the first time in our history, decided to come together in one unbreakable and impregnable bunch to promote, protect and preserve your legacies.
” We have elected to break all bounds and carry your footprints to every nook and every cranny of our dear clime. Hence, we urge you to remain calm and focused for God who gave you this first tenure will give you a second. This we have unwaveringly determined to work for, no matter what the stakes are” they noted in the letter.
