“Governor Ugwuanyi Not Probing Predecessor, Sullivan Chime”Latest News, News From The State Wednesday, November 25th, 2015
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Enugu State Government has dismissed the media report that the incumbent Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi is instigating the probe, through the State’s House of Assembly, of his predecessor, Sullivan Chime.
A press statement issued Wednesday by Governor Ugwuanyi’s Chief Press Secretary, Uwakwe Abugu, said the report was imaginary and did not in any way represent the “peace, harmony and progressive actions” being midwifed by the present administration of the state, among its political leaders.
The statement contended there was contrast in the story’s headline and its body, which it argued reported “purely legislative oversight functions of the Enugu state House of Assembly” but with no link to the Governor.
“Any discerning mind which goes through the report would naturally ask, “Whither the role or hand of the state Governor in the actions of the state assembly which decided to look into executions of some contracts in the state?”
“At the moment, Governor Ugwuanyi is engrossed in several salvage actions of his administration aimed at raising the bar of performance in all spheres of governance. His is an administration embedded in momentous actions involving flag-off of development projects, continuous engagements with various stakeholder groups, business groups with a view to ensuring that no stone is left unturned in the drive to achieve all aspects of the four-point agenda of the government” the statement said.
Abugu held being a true democrat and having served his people for a decade and two years as a National Assembly member, Governor Ugwuanyi would not use his office to meddle in the affairs of the legislative arm of government.
The statement said the general atmosphere of cordiality in Enugu’s political space since the Governor assumed office on May 29, was a direct result of his “personal and official efforts to galvanize all leaders of the state into working for the general well-being of the people”, adding that this could only be achieved in an atmosphere of peace and harmony among the critical stakeholders.
