giant development strides in the state with the limited resources at
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.

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.

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.
