Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has advised his Executive Assistants (EAs) in all the electoral wards of the state to be more proactive in sensitising and enlightening rural dwellers on the programmes, policies and vision of the state government.
The governor also asked them to be instrument of peace and reconciliation in their respective wards.
In an interactive session with the Executive Assistants Ugwuanyi emphasised the importance his government attaches to them as his representatives at the grassroots, stressing that the position is sensitive and vital to the success of its rural development agenda.
Describing the EAs as “political generals and commanders” in the rural areas, governor Ugwuanyi told the appointees to intensify efforts towards their responsibilities as the link between his administration and the rural dwellers, to guide and inform them of the workings of government.
The governor, who thanked the EAs for their selfless service, equally urged them to continue to work as a team and remain steadfast in the task ahead, noting that his administration is all-inclusive and grassroots-oriented.
Earlier, the EAs, through their address presented by the State Coordinator, Samuel Ozougwu, appreciated God for using Ugwuanyi to accommodate them “as integral part of the machinery for the delivery of good governance to the people of Enugu State”.
They commended the governor for his uncommon leadership style anchored on peace and development, stating that he has redefined politics in the state and has “no boundary or segregates in his projects execution in the state”.
