The best-selling and most sought after online business and political news and articles publishers, Tectono Business Review, gathered that the governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has given one-bedroom apartment each to 100 civil servants who were successful in a ballot for the apartments.

Governor Ugwuanyi, who stated that his action was a subset of his determination to tackle the accommodation problems of low-income earners in the state, personally presented the keys of the flats to the beneficiaries.

As the recipient of apartments were rejoicing, Gburugburu, as the governor is popularly known as, revealed that his administration had shown an indisputable steadfastness, tenacity and doggedness to assist civil servants through the payment of 30 per cent equity contribution for the beneficiaries.

In his own words: “I have promised to provide a fair opportunity for every citizen to make a living and create wealth so that everyone can enjoy life in a peaceful and secure environment. The welfare of workers will always be of concern to this administration and this we have demonstrated by handing over the keys to the beneficiaries. The 100 beneficiaries were selected through an open lottery in which all civil servants from grade levels 01 to 10 were free to participate.”

Tectono Business Review also gathered that 18 patrol vans were equally presented to security agencies during the ceremony in order to enhance their operational efficiency and ability to respond timely during distress calls. Similarly, 20 tractors were given to farmers in the local governments to enhance their capacity for food production. Kudos to Gburugburu.

While speaking with newsmen, the Enugu State Head of Service, Mr. Chidi Ezema, stated that not less than 600 workers took part in the ballot that produced the winners, adding that out of the project cost of N350 million, the state government had paid 30 per cent to make the re-payment process easier for the workers. According to him, the repayment period for the mortgage arrangement was 20 years.
