Oil producing State: Ohanaeze applauds Gov. Ugwuanyi’s tenacity

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, has praised Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for listing Enugu as an oil producing state.

DAILY POST previously reported that the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) ratified Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration’s request for Enugu to join other States in enjoying oil producing status following a meeting late last year in Abuja.

Governor Ugwuanyi had told a delegation of the University of Nigeria, Alumni Association (UNAA), Nsukka Branch during a solidarity visit at the Government House, that: “As I am leaving office, I am happy that the money that will be coming to Enugu won’t be what I witnessed. It won’t be what we suffered.”

Reacting, the National President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Wednesday, said the development was a result of Governor Ugwuanyi’s doggedness.

Okwu said the Igbo youths were delighted that “the Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, relentlessly pursued this goal until it was achieved.

“What this means to the economy and development of Enugu State is monumental. It is a victory for the entire people of Enugu State, including those yet unborn.

“We the entire Igbo youths laud the governor for his unwavering push and never give up spirit which gave birth to the success story we are celebrating.”
