Group Canvasses Support for Enugu Governor Ugwuanyi

A support group of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, “Governor Ugwuanyi Progressive Movement (GUPM)”, have restated their unalloyed support and loyalty to the governor as their leader and role model.

The group made this known when the Ward, Local Government, Zonal, and State Coordinators of GUPM paid a solidarity visit to Gov. Ugwuanyi at the Government House, Enugu, on Tuesday.

Members of GUPM also reassured Gov. Ugwuanyi of their solidarity and firm support for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, stressing that they will continue to follow the governor as the leader of the PDP and work assiduously towards the party’s electoral victory in 2023.

Since the group’s inception in 2016, the State Coordinator, Engr. Chris Ugwu has vowed their undying loyalty to the governor.

Engr. Ugwu expressed their admiration for Gov. Ugwuanyi’s unique leadership style in Enugu State, which is based on peace and good governance. He emphasised that despite the state’s limited resources and the numerous economic, security, and health challenges facing the nation, the governor has carried out his duties diligently and effectively. 

“Your Excellency, our coming out today is to show that GUPM Enugu State is for you and tell you that we are solidly behind you. What gives us joy in Enugu State is the peace and good governance your administration has entrenched in the state despite all the security and economic challenges.

“We don’t know how you do the magic. What we know is that you entrusted Enugu State to the Hands of God. You made Enugu State be in peace and witness development, especially in the rural areas where our people were hitherto neglected”, he said.

The state coordinator emphasised that the purpose of the trip was to reaffirm the group’s commitment to Gov. Ugwuanyi as their leader, the PDP candidate for the Enugu North Senatorial District, Barr. Peter Mbah as the state’s PDP governor candidate and other PDP candidates in the general elections of 2023.

The GUPM Coordinators for the senatorial districts of Enugu East, Enugu North, and Enugu West, Hon. John Nnam, Hon. Chris Ugwu and Hon. Remigius Udeh, respectively, supported Gov. Ugwuanyi and his PDP-led administration and reiterated their support in separate addresses.

They emphasised that the organisation has been working nonstop in favour of the governor since 2016 and will not stop doing so because they value the peace and progress in Enugu State and want the achievement to be preserved for future generations.

Mrs Ebere Irechukwu congratulated Gov. Ugwuanyi on behalf of the women, saying, “The excellent works you are doing for us in Enugu State are numerous to be enumerated.”

She promised the governor they would continue to support him and prayed to God to continue giving the governor wisdom, good health, peace, and strength so that he may continue to serve the people of the state and Nigerians in general with more selflessness.
