On Tuesday, the heads, managements, and staff of the Enugu State Government’s Boards, Institutions, Parastatals, Agencies, and Commissions (BIPAC) converged on the Government House in Enugu to thank Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for his good works in the state despite the nation’s challenges in the economy, security, and health.
The ecstatic Enugu workers, led by the Chairman of the Enugu State Universal Basic Education Board (ESUBEB), Chief Ikeje Asogwa, also praised Gov. Ugwuanyi for selecting and emergence of Barr. Peter Ndubuisi Mbah and Barr. Ifeanyi Ossai as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate and deputy governorship candidate, respectively.
They pledged their solidarity and support for Gov. Ugwuanyi, the PDP’s candidate for Enugu North Senatorial District, Barr. Mbah, Barr. Ossai, and other PDP candidates in the 2023 elections, promising to work around the clock and mobilise the electorate to ensure landslide victories for the PDP and its flag-bearers.
Speaking at the event, Chief Asogwa told Gov. Ugwuanyi, who was present alongside the PDP governorship candidate, Barr. Mbah, his running mate, Barr. Ossai, and the State Chairman of the Party, Hon. Augustine Nnamani, that the workers had come to “applaud you for the good works you have been doing in the state.”
He added that the visit was also “to thank you for our brothers that emerged from the last PDP governorship primary election in Enugu State, Barr. Peter Ndubuisi Mbah, and his running mate, Barr. Ifeanyi Ossai.”
Chief Asogwa, who is the Director General of Enugu State PDP Campaign Organisation, stressed that the workers were poised to ensure that Barr. Mbah and Barr. Ossai won the governorship election in the State in 2023 “to move the State to greater heights.”
“We had the good fortune to work with a governor (Ugwuanyi) who wields enormous power while remaining humble. Your Excellency, you are a master of human relationships. “You have been an unfailing source of good, and you are a national champion of peace and humility, and we are honoured to work with you,” he said.

In separate speeches, Hon. Mrs. Ugochi Madueke, Chairman of Nike Lake Resort, Enugu, and Chief Mrs. Amaka Anajemba, Managing Director of Enugu State Waste Management Agency (ESWAMA), expressed gratitude to Gov. Ugwuanyi for empowering the women of the state in various capacities, assuring him that the workers are solidly behind his administration and the PDP candidates.
They went further to thank the governor for the choice of Barr. Mbah and Barr. Ossai and pledged that they will join hands together and galvanise the women of the state to elect them into office come 2023.
They, therefore, expressed confidence that the PDP governorship candidate and his running mate, who are both lawyers, have the capacity to take Enugu State to the next level.
Responding, Gov. Ugwuanyi thanked the workers for their prayers, solidarity and support for his administration, Barr. Mbah, Barr. Ossai and all other candidates of the PDP in the state, saying: “We have not taken them for granted.”
The governor, who emphasised that God is in charge of Enugu State’s affairs because his administration entrusted the state to Him, urged the jubilant workers to continue to pray fervently “so that we finish well, finish strong, and it will end in praise.”
The Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Simon Uchenna Ortuanya, the Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor, Prof. Malachy Okwueze, the State Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rt.
