The Catholic Bishop of Nsukka Diocese, Most Reverend Godfrey Igwebuike Onah, has expressed delight at the commitment of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration in entrenching peace and the spread of infrastructural development in the state, through its rural development policy.
Bishop Onah revealed this during a thanksgiving Mass at Saint. Theresa’s Cathedral Nsukka, organized by a support group for Governor Ugwuanyi, Gburugburu Support Group (GSG), for his victory at the polls, describing the governor’s reelection as “a prayer answered”.
The cleric stated that the people of Enugu State are happy with Ugwuanyi and enjoined them to sustain their support for his administration, appealing against any act that could undermine the progress of the state.
He said, “we have seen good governance in His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, because he has spread infrastructural development in all the areas of the state through his rural development programmes, and Nsukka happens to be a great beneficiary of this his administration’s noble gesture”
The Bishop assured the governor of the people’s unceasing prayers considering the enormous challenges involved in governance.
The event was graced by the Deputy Governor of Enugu State, Hon. Mrs. Cecilia Ezeilo, the leader of the group, Mrs. Josephine Nwokedike.
Nwokedike said the governor is a humble, God-fearing, seasoned administrator and prudent manager of scarce resources, adding that the Mass was organized to thank God for his victory in the last polls and ask God to continue to bless his administration.
She re-affirmed the group’s unwavering support to the present administration in Enugu State and urged the people to continue to support and pray fervently for the governor and his team to do more for the state.
