The President of Igbo Indigenes Without Borders, a socio-cultural organization with special bias for the benefit of Igbo People both at home and abroad, Dr. Benard Oshi has lauded the leadership qualities of the executive governor of Enugu State, Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and what he termed the governor’s ”tenacious dedication towards delivering his campaign promises to the good people of Enugu State!”
Speaking at a town hall meeting jointly organized by two Igbo-centric Socio-Cultural Organizations comprising of the Okpara Igbo Forum (OIF) and Igbo Indigenes Without Borders in Lagos, a fortnight ago, Dr. Oshi praised Dr. Ugwuanyi, whom he described as an “astute leader who derives immeasurable joy from providing basic and essential services to the people of Enugu State, through his massive infrastructural, manpower and community development strides!”
Dr. Benard Oshi who hails from Aninri in Enugu State, availed that “with what the governor has been able to achieve in less than four years, there’s no gainsaying the fact that he is the right man for the job.” Continuing, Dr. Oshi who is also the executive Chairman of Ben 10 Equipments, a construction equipments leasing company, and Ben 10 Entertainment Inc., an established entertainment industry big player, also announced the unalloyed endorsement of Chief Ugwuanyi for a second term by his organization, Igbo Indigenes Withot Borders, while imploring the Okpara Igbo Forum through its President Mazi Onyebuchi Obah (SAN), to do same by galvanizing his members who are from Enugu State to rally round the second term ambition of the performing governor in the forth coming gubernatorial elections in 2019.
According to Oshi, “this is to ensure the continuation of the marvelous work the workaholic governor, who is popularly and endearingly known as “Gburugburu” has been doing.” “Enugu State has never had this good for a very long time, so it behooves all of us to make sure he returns. Some of us who were born and bred outside the State have always wished for purposeful and people-orientated government, and now that we have gotten that, we need to maximize the inherent potentials in such a government to the fullest.’
Continuing in the same vein, this young philanthropist who is popularly known as Ben 10 posited that “it does not really matter who is at the helm of affairs in the state, all that the people yearn and demand for is good governance and Dr. Ugwuanyi is currently providing that In the State, so I personally don’t see any reason for a change of baton in Enugu, because you don’t change a winning team while the game is still on unless you are prepared to lose, and I don’t sincerely believe that the good people of Enugu State are prepared to lose out now.”
In parting, he implored “all Enugu State indigenes and residents who are of voting age to disregard the ranting of anti Ugwuanyi elements who are only interested in their own selfish and pecuniary benefits and come out en masse to return the performing governor during the governorship elections early next year, for the overall benefit of all Enugu indigenes and residents alike.”
