My People Were Neglected For 8 Years In Enugu – Ekweremadu

The Deputy President of the Senate, Chief Ike Ekweremadu, said former Gov. Sullivan Chime’s administration in Enugu state, neglected the people of Aninri Local Government Area for eight years.

Speaking on Saturday in Aninri during the flag-off of nine rural projects funded by the state government, Ekweremadu said that the Chime’s tenure was the darkest in the lives of Aninri people.

He said that during the period, the state government had no presence in the entire council, adding that projects executed in the area were by the federal and local governments.

“Eight years ago all development projects in this area were done by the federal and local governments, but we now have a governor that is ready to work for our people.

“Between 2007 and 2015, no indigene of Aninri was employed in the state civil service and from statistics, we have the least number of civil servants in the state,” he said.

The deputy senate president said that the local government area had only 400 workers in the state service, adding that no permanent secretary was from the area.

“This neglect of our people for eight years was that bad but God has raised someone who will raise us.

“For instance, at the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), we only have four staff members from Aninri while Udi, Awgu and Oji River Local Government Areas have 360, 85 and 60 staff, respectively, in the institution,” he said.

Ekweremadu said that it was the governor of the state, Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who drew his attention to the anomalies, and said that the governor had taken steps to redress the ills.

“The governor has appointed our son as permanent secretary and another one as director of works in IMT. The state commissioner of works is also from Aninri and more are coming,” he said.

According to him, it is gratifying that our people are now feeling the impact of the state government and we will continue to support the governor.

Ekweremadu appealed to the people of the area to unite and move the place forward, adding that greater things were ahead.

    my people don’t let us get this man wrong, because indirectly what he meant was that for 8 yrs he has being eating from federal govt now he plans to eat from the state govt, if not for the fact that apart from eating/ looting govt money, they don’t know how to do any other meaningful thing, how can someone be a duty Senate President for years, still has eyes for governor, untill their belle burst.

      can he even point out to what and what he has done with all the constituency allowances he got for that 8yrs, which projects has completed to impact positively in lives his people. They were not made to give account of what they have done with all the money collecting as running cost, and what are doing that is s costing them millions of naira every month.

  • Ismaila Abdulrahman Oct 16, 2016 at 7:58 am Ismaila Abdulrahman

    Its a shame on the Deputy Senate President to say his people were neglected for 8 years in Enugu. After all, he made them to be neglected. Was he not at the helms of affairs in this country for the whole of those years? He should tell his Enugu people the role he played but failed towards alleviating their plights. Its a shame uttering this statement. Enugu people, over to you.

      Nche Kwube why not leave insults and face reality. Every tribe has their flaws. I think we should face things that move us forward. I was in enugu last year and it was the same thing I asked people. Many were bitter saying they are yet to feel the impact of the deputy senate president. This comments to me means he is eyeing the state house in 2019 election I guess.

    • Cyprain Nkem Vincent Oct 16, 2016 at 10:53 am Cyprain Nkem Vincent

      None of you read the full text… Ike himself was commending the action of the new governor of enugu state, thereby lamenting the way last administration under sullivan chime suffered our people in aninri local government of enugu state where Ike come from, and you are here making noise.
