Enugu Traditional Ruler Pledges Quality Leadership

The newly elected traditional ruler of Ogugu, one of the communities in Agwu Local Government Area in Enugu State, Igwe Aloysius Ogbonna, has promised that his administration will deliver quality leadership to the people.

Ogbonna’s emergence in a keenly contested election ended the 24 years that Ogugu had been without a leader, following the death of the former traditional ruler, Godwin Ochi.

In an interview with THISDAY yesterday, Ogbonna said his victory was an act of God and the people’s collective decision to end the lack of leadership which had resulted in the series of marginalisation suffered by the community.

According to him, “I have always wanted the opportunity to serve the people. I promise to use my time as the leader of the community to deliver good governance to the people who have found me worthy.”

He noted that he was ready to work with his opponent from Ugwuagbo–Uhuahu, Godwin Egbo, and other individuals to move the community to greater heights in terms of development.

“I must thank the Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah, and the Ministry of Rural Development and Chieftaincy Matters for making sure that the election was hitch-free and fair,” he said.
