Political Parties in Enugu Pass Vote of Confidence on Governor Ugwuanyi, Laud Achievements

The Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), the umbrella body comprising
all the political parties in Enugu state has commended Governor
Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for his administration's accomplishments so far in
Speaking during a courtesy visit to the Government House, Enugu, the
group led by its chairman, Barrister John Nwobodo, assured the
governor of its support and cooperation to ensure the administration
succeeds, noting that its members were open to collaboration with the
state government as such would promote more development and inclusiveness.
The organisation also urged the governor to consider the completion of
some "uncompleted projects" such as the International Conference
Centre started by the Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani administration, pointing
out that their completion would boost the state's economic fortune.
Nwobodo explained that the visit is an opportunity to commend and
applaud the milestones the governor has recorded and its "robust
delivery on effective governance notwithstanding the meager resources
accruable to the state due to the drop in price of oil."
He expressed the group's commitment to embrace a new political culture
of tolerance and accommodation, adding that they are placing the state
above personal or party interest "because first of all we are
indigenes of Enugu State before we joined political parties as
political parties will come and go and we shall remain indigenes of
Enugu State."
Governor Ugwuanyi thanked the leaders of the political parties for the
support and solidarity they have accorded his administration since its
inauguration despite obvious political differences.
The governor noted that it was based on his vision to ensure a more
peaceful and prosperous state, that he declared his willingness to
cooperate and partner with all political stakeholders in the state on
assumption of office.
"Your response to that invitation has been more than positive and
encouraging," he said to a resounding applause. "It demonstrates
maturity and a deep interest in the promotion of peace, unity and a
sense of common purpose which are prerequisites for rapid and
sustainable development in any society."
He expressed optimism that their visit is an opportunity to
consolidate the relationship and also a platform to interface on
issues that affect the state. "I thank you for your kind compliments
on the modest efforts we have made - and are making - to improve the
lives of our people," he said, assuring them that his administration
will not relent despite the economic difficulties facing the country.
