NGO EXTOLS GOV. UGWUANYI’S COMMITMENT TOWARDS WORKERS’ WELFARE

Rt. Hon.Chief  Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Enugu State Governor
It is crystal clear that among all the state governors in Nigeria, the governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, is outstanding in terms of making the welfare of workers paramount. Yes, Gburugburu, as he is popularly known as, is known for his prompt payment of workers’ salaries and allowances in the state. This has earned the governor extolment from the Centre for Reform Education Initiative (CREI), a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO).

In a statement issued by the Executive Director of CREI, Hon. Chinwe Ugwu, which was made available to Tectono Business Review, expressed appreciation to Chief Ugwuanyi for his commitment towards improved welfare for civil servants in the state.

The statement read in part: “The event of September 1, 2015, the day the governor extended his spirit of goodwill, humility, simplicity, passion, vision and love to 100 lucky civil servants in the state, between grade-level 1-10, who won one bedroom apartment each at the Elim Estate for which his administration had paid 30 per cent equity contribution of the total cost of each flat under its housing scheme for public servants. This gesture of the governor was a dream come true and a new dawn in the annals of the state’s vision towards motivating and improving on the welfare of the workers.”

According to the NGO, it has followed closely the activities of the governor since he assumed duties on May 29, 2015 and so far he has been delivering on his promises.

The Executive Director of the NGO remembered that the governor, during his pre-election campaign, had promised to commit himself to deploying government resources towards employment generation, enhanced social services, good governance, rural development, security and justice in line with the 4-point agenda and our broad policy of continuity and consolidation.
