The attention of Women in Government in Oji River, has been drawn to the deliberate falsehood and blatant fabrications dished out on a Program sponsored by Save Oji River Initiative on Urban Ratio on 21/08/2021.
The aspersions targeted at our gender sensitive, peace loving and hardworking Governor, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Dr Lawrence Ifeanyichukwu Ugwuanyi on the said Radio Program, is as unfortunate as it is deceptive.
At no time in the history of Enugu State has women had it so good as in the administration of GBURUS especially women of Oji River LGA.
Among other juicy appointments graciously extended to indigenes of Oji River, our women were favoured with appointment of as Commissioner in Enugu State Civil Service Commission, Managing Director of ESWAMA, Chairman of Nike Resort Hotel, Senior Special Assistance to the Governor, Permanent Secretary, etc.
The hallmark of good governance is found in the protection of life and property of citizens, development of human capital and infrastructure abd equitable distribution of democracy dividends.
His Excellency has done excellently well those areas.
Enugu State is about the most peaceful and safest in the country. This is achieved as a result of the ingenuity employed by His Excellency in the management and deployment of the scarce resources of the state to targeted critical areas, such as security, health, education, human capital development.
The achievement of the Ugwuanyi administration in the last over six years are very glaring and solid for the falsehood of Save Oji River Initiative, its agents and other unscrupulous agents to obliterate.
The Women in Government in Oji River, the entire women in Oji River and indeed Ndi Oji are solidly behind His Excellency in his unrelenting effort and uncommon devotion to make Enugu State better.
The Chairman of Oji- River Local Government Area, Barr. Frank Udemezue, is working interdim with the programmes and aspirations of the State Government. Oji-River people are saying “e dey work e dey show” Work in progress. At the appropriate time, the Chairman and the Council members, shall address the issues raised by SORI, when appropriate.
I advice and pray that, all hands must be on deck to make Oji River the envy of other Local Government Areas.
Enugu State is safe in Hands of God Almighty.
Prayer! is the key and United we are, the stronger.
Hon. Lady Joy Odike
