Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has charged his Executive Assistants (EAs) in all the electoral wards of the state to assume responsibilities and work assiduously towards sensitising and enlightening the rural dwellers on the numerous programmes, policies and vision of his administration.
The governor also asked them to be an instrument of peace and reconciliation in their respective wards to ensure continuous delivery of democratic dividends to the people of the state.
Ugwuanyi, who spoke during an interactive meeting with the elated Executive Assistants, 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 appointees as “political generals and commanders” in the rural areas, the governor told them to intensify efforts in 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 and “we are all members of one family”.
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 discriminate in his projects execution in the state”.
The enthusiastic appointees reassured him of their absolute loyalty and support as his “foot soldiers and willing tools in his hands to continue with his good works in the state, promising to deliver on other responsibilities given to them.
“Our prayer is that God will nullify every counsel, plan, desire, expectations, imagination, device and activities of the enemy against you and Enugu State,” they prayed.
