According to the CNPP, the Governor’s “strides in the political arena started when he had his first shot as an administrator in the local government and later the Federal House of Representatives.
“His performance spoke for him and soon he was elected as the chairman of the House Committee on Maritime. His performance was outstanding and His Excellency spent 12 years in the Green Chambers.
“No wonder that when it became obvious that the mantle of leadership of Enugu state got to Enugu North Senatorial Zone courtesy of the policy of the “Triangular Equilibrium” in Enugu State, he was chosen to pilot the affairs of the state as His Excellency, Rt. Hon. (Dr) Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi won overwhelmingly.
“On 29th of May, 2015,he was sworn as the Executive Governor of Enugu state. Every citizen of the state heaved a sigh of relief.
“On the 30th of May, 2015, His Excellency opened the doors of massive development and since then, he has written his name in gold”, the CNPP said.
The umbrella body of all registered political parties and political associations in the state added that the “roads, hospitals, judiciary, schools, security, tertiary institutions, rural electrification, payment of arrears of salaries owed by his predecessor, and prompt payment of salaries, among others in Enugu state are testimonies of the massive transformation that has taken place.
“Despite the the distraction by the enemies of progress, he continued with his good works.
“But no one knew that all these were being taken into cognisance by the powers that be in the nation’s capital.
“On 11th of October, 2022, the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari conferred on our Governor the prestigious honour of the Commander of the order of the Niger (CON).
“The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties, Enugu State chapter, (CNPP) sees this as a great honour well deserved.
“We rejoice with you on this great occasion. In fact, this is a “seal” of the numerous awards you have received for your good works in Enugu state.
CNPP Enugu state is saying,who Jah bless, let no man curse.
“To his Excellency, CNPP says that the cap fits you, and we pray for more, to shame the nay sayers”, the CNPP said.
Pledging its support for the Governor’s political future, the CNPP said that “2023 move to the Red Chambers”, apparently referring to the Enugu North Senatorial seat, will be “yet another cap coming”.
