President Jonathan, Ugwuanyi Will Perform, Ekweremadu Assures

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu at the weekend assured that President Goodluck Jonathan and the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu state, Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi would deliver on their promises to Ndigbo and Enugu people respectively, if elected in the forthcoming general elections.

The Deputy Senate President gave the assurances while addressing communities in Ezeagu Local Government Area in continuation of his re-election campaign and inspection and commissioning of various projects he attracted to the area under the President Jonathan Administration.
Senator Ekweremadu who inspected the 17 km Obuofia-Imeziowa-Amokwe road project, also commissioned a classroom block at Unity Secondary School Ihuonyia, Amansiodo-Oghe and three primary school blocks at Umumba-Ndeagu. He promised to renovate dilapidated primary school blocks in Umumba-Ndeagu and donate transformers to several communities in the Council.

He said: \"You would observe that there have been positive developments in Ezeagu since the inception of the current democratic era. Many roads have been built in Ezeagu and some communities now have water and electricity. But the truth is that these have not gone round and it is our belief that every community in Enugu West is entitled to good road, water, electricity, good schools, and other essentials of life\".
“Therefore, I would like to stand here before our people to guarantee that our President will perform for the people of South East; that Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi will perform for the people of Enugu state; that Dennis Amadi will deliver to the people of Udi and Ezeagu Federal Constituency; that Chima Obieze will represent Ezeagu effectively in the Enugu State House of Assembly; and that I, Ike Ekweremadu will continue to serve you humbly\".

Speaking at the rally, stakeholders from the area including the Ezeagu Council Chairman, Barr Emeka Ozoagu and Dr. Festus Uzor assured Senator Ekweremadu and other candidates of the party of the vote of Ezeagu people, emphasising that about 90 percent of voters in the area had already collected their Permanent Voter\'s Card.

Dr. Uzor noted that Enugu State was grooming Senator Ekweremadu as a prominent Igbo statesman, hence the decision to keep re-electing him into the Senate “to continue the great work he is doing for our people and the nation”.
