2nd Term: Enugu Transport Workers Endorse Gov Ugwuanyi


………………………..Say they are happy with his good works in all spheres of the economy


Road transport workers in Enugu State under the aegis of National

Union of Road Transport Workers have unanimously endorsed Governor


Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for re-election in 2019 for his administration’s

giant development strides in the state with the limited resources at

its disposal.


The road transport workers, who gave the endorsement during a

solidarity rally organized by the union tagged: “One good term

deserves another” held at the popular Michael Okpara Square, Enugu,

appreciated Gov. Ugwuanyi for “the unprecedented good governance he

has brought to bear in the lives of the good people of Enugu State”.


In an address presented by the state chairman of the union, Chief

Mathew Asogwa, the transport workers added that the governor in spite

of the daunting economic reality in the country and lean resources of

Enugu State has so far recorded tremendous feat in roads construction

and rehabilitation both in urban and rural areas, which they said

elongates the life of their vehicles.


They also pointed out that their endorsement of Gov. Ugwuanyi for

re-election was because of his positive impacts in the prompt payment

of salaries of all civil servants in the state; human capacity

development; health sector reforms; empowerment of youths, traders and

artisans, among others.


The union equally disclosed that the education sector was also

receiving serious attention through the construction, renovation and

equipping of public schools and recruitment of about 4000 teachers

into the primary and secondary schools including promotion of

teachers, among others.


The transporters while reaffirming their “unflinching support” for the

governor for his re-election in office stressed that “it will be a

disservice to the good people of Enugu State if we as one of the major

beneficiaries of your administration’s provision of democracy

dividends fail to show commensurate appreciation”.


“In fact, we have come to put into practice the saying that “Honour

should be given to whom it is due”. Your Excellency, the good people

of Enugu State particularly members of our great union are proud of

you for your sustained and untiring efforts at transforming Enugu

State to greater heights.


“The union wishes to assure you that we are solidly behind you and we

are going to deploy all machinery in motion to ensure the realization

of the theme of this rally “One Good Term Deserves Another.


“To this end, we have commenced enlightment and sensitization campaign

among our members to encourage them to go and register and obtain

their Permanent Voters Cards”, the union chairman stated.


Responding, Gov. Ugwuanyi, who was represented by his Chief of Staff,

Dr. Festus Uzor, thanked the members of the union for their

“unwavering” support, prayers goodwill and solidarity, assuring them

that such gesture would not be taken for granted.


Dr. Uzor also appreciated the large turnout of the road transport

workers at the event, saying that it was a testimony that they are

truly in support of the governor and his good works in Enugu State.


He reassured that the Gov. Ugwuanyi administration will continue to

provide the basic needs of the people to make life more meaningful to

them, as well as provide the enabling environment to make their

businesses thrive in the state.


The Chief of Staff maintained that the state government has opened

many rural areas through roads construction and other infrastructural

development and enhanced the security of the state, making Enugu one

of the safest states in the country.
