The Awgu Local Government Area Chairman since his election into office on February 29th 2020 has continued to reface the image of the council area in a government that Awgu people tagged the NEW FACE OF AWGU.

One year in office of the current administration of Hon. Pedro OKWUDILI NWANKWO “EZEOMEOGO”, is made possible and easy because God is in support of his administration, the council Chairman is so grateful to the Maker of Heaven and the Earth; the Executive governor of Enugu State, His Excellency Rt. Hon. Dr Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has thrown his weight upon Awgu LGA leadership of all tiers; the wonderful support and result-driven ideas of the Stakeholders of Awgu LGA were much instrumental to this records; the synergy existing between the Executives and Legislatures of Awgu LGA, the prayers of the Traditional Rulers and the Clergies, the women and Youths support and their involvement, the party leadership and it’s members.
