GOV. UGWUANYI VISITS THE BLINDS AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED

Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Enugu State Governor
The Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, otherwise known as Gburugburu, has restated his administration’s resolution to alleviate the sufferings of the less-privileged in the society and the needy in order to give them a sense of belonging in the scheme of things.

Gburugburu made this known in Enugu during the 5th anniversary and graduation ceremony for the skills acquisition students and dedication of the Resource and Recreational Centre for the blind and visually impaired, founded by a non-governmental organization, Bina Foundation.

According to the governor, who is known for his disarming humility, his presence at the event was to specifically identify with his “special friends,” the less-privileged, who he described as the true heroes of democracy, assuring them of the support of Enugu State government at all times.

He extoled the founders of the organization, Sir and Lady Chris Atuegwu, for their kind gesture towards the physically challenged people and the needy in the state and called on other rich and well-meaning Nigerians to emulate their good works to make the world a better place.

Earlier in her welcome address, the president of the Foundation, Lady Ifeoma Atuegwu, who praised the governor for his uncommon care for the down-trodden, thanked God for His inspiration which enabled her and other co-founders to dedicate their service towards ameliorating the pains and sufferings of the poor and needy.

According to her, the foundation which started in 2010 has recorded remarkable achievements for their target groups, which include the physically challenged, the blind and visually impaired, deaf and mute, the aged, motherless and abandoned babies, orphans and vulnerable children
