Enugu State governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has assured Nigerians that the present economic hardship in the country will eventually turn to a blessing through the favour of God.
The governor gave the assurance in Ede-Oballa, Nsukka local government area of the state at the grand reception organised by the people of the community in honour of the immediate past chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State, Chief Vita Abba.
Ugwuanyi, who commended Abba for his selfless service to the party and the state at large, noted with regret that the present leaders in the country are facing a lot of challenges due to the negative development in the oil sector, stressing that “before now the story was Excess Crude Oil, but today it is Bailout Fund”.
He reiterated his administration’s commitment to step-up development in the three senatorial districts of the state in spite of the harsh economic situation in the country.
The governor called on the people of the state to continue to offer special prayers for his administration and the country, saying that what the nation is passing through will eventually be a thing of the past.
Ugwuanyi thanked members of the party for their prayers, support and goodwill, and also applauded the people of Ede Oballa for honouring their son, Abba.
