My People Were Neglected For 8 Years In Enugu – Ekweremadu by odiks: 7:43pm On Oct 15, 2016
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.

Please don't dabble into what you know not.

If by "his people" you meant Aninri people, I can tell you that Ekweremmadu has virtually transformed the entire area with mega Federal projects especially roads done by Class A contractors like Setraco and the likes. Aninri is seamlessly linked to three States of Abia, Enugu and Ebonyi, making evacuation of agro-produces easier than ever before.

If on the other hand, by "his people", you meant Igbos, let me educate you, just a little. By his action, as the leader of South-East caucus at the National Assembly, Ekweremmadu was able to convince all his colleagues in National Assembly to 'pool' all their constituency allowance and have it applied for Enugu Akanu Ibiam Airport runway extension and procurement of landing gears and other equipment that led to the airport being certified for international flights. In others words, Ekweremmadu worked to see that that ban or curse on having International Airport in Igboland was lifted. Igboland South East was the only geo-political Zone without International airport.

If you press me, I give you more.

Please dear leave Ike Oha NdiIgbo.

Lol @ " my people". When a Nigerian politician says " My People", you know he's about to lie.

I am not from Enugu, but I know from folks from that axis that Chime was one of the silent achievers during the last administration.

He worked and never made noise, just like Obiano did in the past. But Obiano has started talking maybe because elections are getting close.

Ask Ekweremadu what he did for the peopke since he joined politics...

This is bad politics. This kind of statement will make the aninri people think that the Ngwo people, Nsukka people are their real issue and might lead to hatred amongst brothers from the same state.
