Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, the premier Igbo sociocultural organization, has praised Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for adding his state to the list of oil-producing states.
According to news reports, the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) in Abuja approved the proposal of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration for Enugu to join other States in having oil producing status as a result of a meeting held there late last year.
Governor Ugwuanyi had told a delegation of the University of Nigeria, Alumni Association (UNAA), Nsukka Branch during a solidarity visit at the Government House, that: “As I am leaving office, I am happy that the money that will be coming to Enugu won’t be what I witnessed. It won’t be what we suffered.”
In a statement made available to Newsmen on Wednesday, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the national president of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, responded by saying that Governor Ugwuanyi’s persistence was to blame for the development.
The Enugu State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, doggedly pursued this goal until it was achieved, according to Okwu, who claimed that the Igbo youths were happy about it.
“What this means to the economy and development of Enugu State is monumental. It is a victory for the entire people of Enugu State, including those yet unborn.
“We the entire Igbo youths laud the governor for his unwavering push and never give up spirit which gave birth to the success story we are celebrating.”
Okwu added that these achievements and several others have justified our endorsement of the Governor for the Enugu North Senatorial seat.
“Our stand has always been that the Senate is for experienced people who can quietly work and attract developmental projects to their senatorial districts and Governor Ugwuanyi is one of such persons,” he further stated.
