Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi
It would be recalled that Gov. Ugwuanyi, in his first term in office, paid the first official visit by a sitting governor to the Onuiyi residence of the foremost nationalist and great son of Igboland, Dr. Azikiwe, in the University town of Nsukka, since after his death in 1996, where he promised renovation of Zik’s Lodge at Enugu, to serve as a monument and tourist attraction.
Gov. Ugwuanyi was led round the renovated and well-equipped edifice by Zik’s son, Mr. Uwakwe Azikiwe, who incidentally is the governor’s Special Adviser on Special Duties – an encounter that reawakened memories of the sage’s political activities during the First Republic.
The governor was also accompanied by the State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Hon. Augustine Nnamani, among others.
Enugu State is in the hands of God. ##
