THE Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province and Anglican Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, has endorsed Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State for re-election in 2019, saying the governor deserves a second term because of his commitment to peace, good governance, love for the poor masses and development of the church.
Chukwuma made the endorsement during his sermon at Centenary anniversary of the Anglican Church in Nkanuland, which was attended by Governor Ugwuanyi; former Governor of old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo and his wife, Patricia, among other dignitaries.
He commended Ugwuanyi for the good works he is doing in the state and his uncommon leadership style that has restored peace, unity and good governance in the state, declaring that his re-election is “assured and not contestable.”
He urged all other political parties, including All Progressives Congress, APC, to shelve party leanings to support the governor.
Gov. Ugwuanyi who was conferred with an “Outstanding Leadership Award” by the Anglican Communion, in his address, felicitated with the Archbishop, the Archdeacon and all the clergy and the laity of the Awkunanaw Archdeaconry, on the historic event and equally thanked them for the award.
“It is my prayer that God will continue to strengthen and empower this Archdeaconry, keeping it strong and progressive to the Glory of His Name,” the governor said.
