The Deputy Senate President Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has donated an electricity transformer to boost power supply in Umulumgbe community, Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State. In a statement by his Special Adviser, (Media) Uche Anichukwu, Ekweremadu said the donation was informed by the desire to bring development to his constituents and also to compliment the efforts of the state and local governments in providing critical infrastructure to the people. He made the donation on the occasion of the grand reception organised by the community in honour of the Governor of Enugu State, Rt Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and the Chairman of Udi LGA, Engr Hyacinth Ugwu, at Umulumgbe over the weekend. Ekweremadu, who commended Gov Ugwuanyi for the peace and developmental efforts by his administration despite the current economic challenges and depleted resources, however, noted that government alone cannot meet the demands of the people in terms of the provision of employment and critical infrastructure.
He, therefore, called on public-spirited individuals and corporate bodies to support government towards achieving better life for the people. “The principal purpose of government is the welfare and security of the people; we will continue to pursue that. I want to reassure the people of Umulumgbe that I will immediately deliver the transformer you require for your electricity in furtherance of my support to the community, local and the state government.
“The narrative of governance in Enugu state has changed for the better. Enugu West and indeed the entire state are peaceful and we are working together for the benefit of the government and the people. We have a governor who remembers every part of Enugu State in terms of appointments and infrastructure. It shall be well with him”, he said.
