Igwe Achebe added that the resounding victory recorded by Gov. Ugwuanyi
at the polls was a re-affirmation of the confidence the people of
Enugu State reposed in him “by giving him the mandate to lead them for
another four years”.

He stated that the victory “shows that his previous four years was
done very well”, saying: “We thank God for that and hope that he will
build on his achievements in the last four years to give him room for
stronger days in the next four years”.

The committee chairman disclosed that the traditional rulers were in
Enugu for their quarterly meeting where they deliberated and took
decisions on issues of great importance to the people of the zone and
Nigeria. Igwe Achebe thanked the governor for his hospitality and other
necessary support provided for the successful hosting of the event.

The Obi of Onitsha also expressed gratitude to Gov. Ugwuanyi and other
South East Governors for their leadership role in closing the “little
gap in communication” that had existed among the traditional rulers,
in the interest of South East.

The Enugu State workers in a congratulatory message by the Chairman
and Secretary of TUC, Comrade Igbokwe Chukwuma Igbokwe and Comrade
Benneth Asogwa, maintained that Gov. Ugwuanyi’s victory “speaks
volumes of your good works in Enugu State”.

The body told the governor that “your administration will continue to
put smile on the faces of Enugu State workers as you will do more to
improve the welfare of workers in the state”.

The workers, therefore, prayed God to continue to bestow the governor
with “His Divine Wisdom and strengthen you as you carry out this
onerous task of governing Enugu State”.
