Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has reiterated the importance of even and balanced development as one of the best ways to mobilise the people for collective societal progress while also quelling the constant cries for marginalisation.
Ugwuanyi, who recently spoke at the Government House Enugu, during a town-hall meeting with the Oguiyi Nike and Umunevo Nike autonomous communities in the Enugu North local government area of the state, noted that the cries for marginalisation in most parts of the country, have their roots in the concentration of government projects in one area, while paying little attention to other areas.
Emphasising the commitment of his administration to continue to reflect spread and balance in the infrastructure revolution currently going on in the state, the governor reminded the gathering that such a strategy also serves to tap into the comparative potentials of each section of the state with a view to building a more virile, robust and all inclusive community of people.
“Each and every section of this state has their peculiar potentials which God has endowed them with. We cannot fully maximise these potentials and opportunities if, as leaders, we fail to take a holistic look at harnessing these opportunities and endowments for the uplift of the people and by extension, for the common good of the state,” he stated.
While appreciating the people of the community for their disposition to peace, a development he attributed as one of the planks of the prevailing safe and secure atmosphere in the state, Governor Ugwuanyi called on the people to sustain their predisposition to peace, linking that to economic prosperity
