Catholic Institute in Enugu State, Honours Governor Ugwuanyi

gburusGovernor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has been conferred with an award by the Catholic Institute of Development, Justice and Peace for his commitment to human development. The institute gave the award as it celebrates its 30th anniversary.
The governor in a brief remark, delivered on his behalf by the Deputy Governor, Lolo Cecilia Ezeilo, who represented him at the occasion, thanked the organizers for the honour bestowed on him and promised to remain a strong advocate for the welfare of Enugu State people in order to improve their socio-economic conditions.
He explained that the state government has already made appreciable progress in several areas of development in Enugu State, in line with the promises made in his inaugural address to commit his administration to the tenets of good governance, employment generation, enhanced services, infrastructure and human capital development, as well as security and justice.
He added that his administration would continue to work closely with CIDJAP and other relevant organizations and agencies to ensure the full realization of “our development agenda”.
He commended Monsignor Obiora Ike for his vision and leadership qualities, noting that the Catholic Diocese of Enugu equally deserved commendation for the support it has been giving the institute.
Earlier in his speech, the director of the institute, Rev Fr. Dr. Chinedu Anieke noted that CIDJAP as a social organ of the Catholic Church was committed to the implementation of its teachings on human development and wellbeing.
