In this our terrestrial odyssey, it is valid to agree that one does not eat his cake and have it, after all, there ought to be a price for every prize. Having known ab initio that the primary concern of setting up a government in every society is to protect lives and properties; creating a conducive and enabling environment for people to carry out their activities, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the executive governor of Enugu State have continued to invest heavily in the security sector and engage in widespread consultations to ensure that the average resident of Enugu State enjoys some relative peace. Today, as the result of all those concerted efforts is being presented for public scrutiny and verdict , I count it a privilege to be part of the epic voyage.
Today, we are proud to welcome some special sports delegations from Serbia and Turkey who are here with two football clubs: Red Star Belgrade Football Club and Antalyaspor Football Club, from the two countries respectively for some international football activities. We are also proud that such exotic delegations were led by a great priest of ours and the voice of the voiceless; Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria(AMEN) as the football scouts had to chose Enugu for their scouting activities on behalf of Adoration Football Club.
It is also expected that the sports activities would eventually become a goldmine for the discovery of some of our talented youths that would cash on the platform to travel abroad and play in foreign teams. In the words of the Sporting Director and Chief Scouts, Red Star Belgrade Football Club; Mr. Milos “… it is our hope that we will find many players in Enugu after the scouting activity.” And one does not need to be reminded that such shows have positive economic impact in addition to rebranding and stabilizing the image of our dear state in the world map. Neither do I need to engage in fecund intellectualism before I know that all these events can only be possible due to the existence of a peaceful environment made possible by GBURU GBURU’s administration.
Charactistically imbued in spiritual clairvoyance and charismatic radiance, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka during their meeting with Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi at the Lion Building, emphatically remarked that Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi remains the most peaceful governor in Nigeria and “…his name should be peace.” In the same vein , the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of UDE Sports Management Limited, and the Sporting Director of Adoration Club, Enugu State, Uche Dominic Egbukwu registered his colorful impressions of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and affirmed that GBURU GBURU is the only governor in the whole Eastern region that is devoid of scandals and controversies.
In the end, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi expressed some tangible optimism that “…if our people are discovered, we will benefit a lot.”
Therefore ,as we put on our sports regalia to embrace our foreign sports colleagues and partake in the unique sports events , we should not forget in haste that GBURU GBURU has been instrumental in ensuring that our dear state does not degenerate into the classic Hobbesian state of nature which is said to be short, nasty and brutish, and as we match out in files, we should resist the temptation of ignoring the essence of making the necessary sacrifices and compromise in building our society .
