...Pledges absolute loyalty, support for governor’s political decisions in 2023

Thousands of jubilant members and supporters of the resilient Ebeano Political Family in Enugu State, on Saturday, unanimously endorsed Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi as their leader in whom they are well pleased.

The members of the political movement gave the endorsement, when the founder who was a former governor of the state and Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, led them to pay a solidarity visit to Gov. Ugwuanyi, at the Government House, Enugu.

Describing Gov. Ugwuanyi as one of them and an unassuming, peace-loving, visionary and worthy leader who has kept the vision and philosophy of the movement alive, the Ebeano family pledged their unalloyed loyalty and support to the governor in his choice of a political successor.

The Ebeano family maintained that Gov. Ugwuanyi deserves the same political privileges enjoyed by his predecessors in the choice of their successors as well as other positions.

Speaking at the colourful and well-attended event, the founder of the Ebeano Political Family, Senator Dr. Nnamani, reassured the governor that they will fully mobilize and rally support on his political decisions in 2023, stressing that “where you are going is where shall go”.

Sen. Nnamani who disclosed that Ebeano signifies “balancing of interest, applying leverages to guarantee interest”, added that Gov. Ugwuanyi is “a man of destiny, with political savvy and sagacity, who is far above others”.

Recalling how Gov. Ugwuanyi brought him back from political retirement, Sen. Nnamani pointed out that the Ebeano movement is not a political party but only playing a complementary role to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state to actualize its lofty agenda.

Addressing the mammoth crowd, Gov. Ugwuanyi, who was delighted at the event, said that “today’s visit to show solidarity is akin to a family reunion as I see many friends and associates of old, political associates, business friends and indeed my peers in the streets of Enugu growing up”.

The governor added that the solidarity was “a spontaneous freewill demonstration of your support with the sole aim of affording our administration the peace, focus and conducive operating political environment to consolidate our modest achievements and deliver more dividends of democracy to Ndi Enugu”.

Gov. Ugwuanyi who paid glowing tribute to Sen. Nnamani for the unique role he played in his political career, said that “I therefore proudly acknowledge God’s faithfulness using this family at the beginning of my political odyssey and I say – to God be the glory”.

Reiterating his resolve to continue to serve the people of Enugu State diligently, the governor noted: “The event of today is a most humbling experience; it challenges us to a deeper reflection and further reinforces our commitment to serve Ndi Enugu”. 

He therefore assured the people of the state that his administration will always work for their great good.

“In 2015, it pleased God, and through the instrumentally of the good people of Enugu State, I was elected governor of the state and re-elected in 2019 to serve our people. Our second term re-election was a referendum on our first term performance which saw Ndi Enugu giving us 95.54 percent of total valid votes cast in 2019 gubernatorial election; a phenomenal and unprecedented expression of support across party lines, religious divide and cultural distinction. This underscores the quantum of confidence reposed in our leadership by Ndi Enugu”, Gov. Ugwuanyi said.

Other speakers at the event, such as the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Edward Ubosi; Rt. Hon. Dr. Pat Asadu of the Federal House of Representatives; State Chairman of the PDP, Hon. Augustine Nnamani; Chief Frank Nweke Jnr. and Dr. Dan Shere, who is the Coordinator of the group, eulogized Gov. Ugwuanyi’s uncommon leadership roles in unifying all political interests as well as reinvigorating the philosophy of the Ebeano political movement, which gave birth to virtually all political actors in the state today.
