Youths from Enugu East Senatorial District, in Enugu State, under the auspices of Nkanu Youth Assembly, have renewed the quest for the governorship position of the state to return to the zone in line with the power rotation arrangement among the three senatorial zones.

Speaking during the Nkanu Cultural Fiesta in Enugu, organised by the Nkanu Youth Assembly, the National President of the association, Hon. Edeani M. Edeani, applauded Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who graced the occasion, for his administration’s youth empowerment programmes, stressing that “the governor has been very supportive to the youth”.

According to a statement issued by Amoke Louis, aide to the governor, Edeani commended governor Ugwuanyi for supporting the youth group to open a poultry farm at Awkunanaw, Enugu South Local Government Area and a rice farm at Isi- Uzo LGA, during the COVID-19 lockdown.

The association, who urged Gov. Ugwuanyi to remain committed to his earlier stance that it is the turn of Enugu East Senatorial zone to produce the next governor of Enugu State in 2023, wished that the person from Nkanu land will be “a humble, peace-loving and hardworking governor like Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi”.

The National President also appreciated other personalities who have been supporting the association to realize its set objectives and went further to propose that every November 29 should be declared as “Nkanu Cultural Day” in the state.

The maiden annual cultural event, which was organised to promote unity and the beautiful culture of Nkanu, as well as protect the socio-political cum economic interests of the zone, honoured the former President of the Senate, Senator Ken Nnamani as the Grand Patron of the association.

In his remarks, Senator Nnamani expressed deep appreciation to Gov. Ugwuanyi for the enduring peace being enjoyed in Enugu State, stating that it is “uncommon” in other states in the country.

The former Senate President stressed that the fact that the governor has ushered in an enduring peace in Enugu State, is a worthy legacy he will be leaving behind at the end of his tenure in 2023.

He therefore encouraged the governor, who was presented with a Meritorious Award of Excellence by the Nkanu Youth Assembly, as the “Icon of Peace and Youth Development”, in recognition of “your excellent leadership and inclusion of youths in governance”, to continue to provide dividends of democracy to all the three senatorial districts in the state.
