Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Governor, Enugu State.
To mark Nigeria’s 55th independence anniversary celebration, the Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, visited Holy Child Motherless Babies’ Home, Holy Ghost Cathedral, Enugu where he saw a motherless child, Master Uchechukwu Nwachukwu suffering from hydrocephalus.

Gburugburu, as the governor is popularly known as, directed the state commissioner for Health Dr. Samuel Ngwu to ensure that the child was taken to the University Teaching Hospital for the needed surgery as government would foot the bill of two million naira.

Tectono Business Review gathered that the same day, Chief Ugwuanyi visited a Cheshire home inhabited by the physically challenged. While chatting with newsmen there, he stated that he was committed to the service to humanity which had brought about his desire to meet the less privileged in the state to mark this year’s Independence anniversary.

In Gburugburu’s own words: “Today is Nigeria’s anniversary day. I have come to identify with your plights, to let you know that you are part of this government. The government of Enugu State has you in mind; my due is to serve you well, to render selfless service to people of the state irrespective of their social strata. Government will always do the needful to ensure that the dividends of democracy are felt in every part of the state.”

Chief Ugwuanyi, who is an erstwhile stockbroker and Ex-President of Rotary Club, Emene Branch, reiterated his commitment to serve the people of Enugu with the fear of God, adding that Enugu people would get the best from the present administration in line with his campaign promises.

In his response, the Chairman of Cheshire Home Skills Centre, Enugu, Mr. Vincent Uzodike extoled the governor for his kindness and commitment to the general good of all in the state. He pointed out that the governor had been into such charity work for the upwards of 15 years and above, adding that the state was in for better days.

We gathered that Rt. Hon. Chief Ugwuanyi also presented cash gifts to all the centres he visited which included the Red Cross and Holy Child Babies Homes, Mother of Christ Specialist Hospitals and Enugu Cheshire Home Skills Centre, and crowd also gathered on sighting him, singing and dancing, expressing their joy as they said that they had never had it so memorable in the recent past. God bless Gburugburu.
