The iconic high-life musician, Chief Mike Ejeagha, has endorsed Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State for a second term in office, for providing good governance and adequate security in the state.
The Ezeagu-born indigene of Enugu State, gave the endorsement when Gov Ugwuanyi paid him a visit at his residence in Abakpa Nike, Enugu East Local Government Area.
Chief Ejeagha, who expressed delight at the govenor’s unscheduled visit to ascertain how he was faring, said he was highly impressed that the governor had transformed Enugu State for the better and also entrenched peace and security in the state, assuring him of his support for his re-election in 2019.
“Your Excellency, I was very happy the day I went to hospital at Ogwuagor, Ugwuoye by first bus stop, I saw that the roads had been tarred. Thank you very much for the security in Enugu State. We can now go out at night and come back anytime without any fear of attack by men of the underworld. You have our support and God will continue to lead you”, the legendary high-life musician said.
Gov Ugwuanyi, in his remark, told the elder statesman that he had planned the visit earlier, stressing that he came to know how he was faring and to see how the state government could assist him in his health and other needs as a revered indigene of the state.
The governor therefore, promised to be paying his medical bills and asked the family to refer his medical details to the state’s teaching hospital, Parklane, Enugu for adequate attention.
He thanked members of his family; especially the wife and daughter for taking care of him, and offered automatic employment to the daughter to enable her take care of her father, accordingly.
Gov Ugwuanyi equally visited the Parklane Hospital, Enugu, where he paid medical bills of all the children who had been discharged but whose parents could not pay their bills.
