Governor Ugwuanyi pledges maximum support for new Service Chiefs

According to him, his support is to enable them successfully perform their duties of protecting the territorial integrity of the country and warding off external aggression.

Speaking during an interactive session between the new Service Chiefs and stakeholders in Enugu State, held at the Government House, Enugu, Gov Ugwuanyi, represented by his deputy, Hon Mrs Cecilia Ezeilo, expressed optimism that the engagement will deepen and strengthen the current synergy between the state government and the military over security matters.

The governor stressed that such synergy was responsible for the enviable rating of Enugu as one of the most peaceful and safest states in the country.

Gov Ugwuanyi, who congratulated the Service Chiefs for their richly deserved appointments, thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for his wisdom, courage and sagacity in giving the highly demanding jobs to the best hands.

“As a government, we would like to use this opportunity to thank the military for internal security services in our state which obviously is an additional burden to their primary responsibility of protecting the territorial integrity of the country and warding off external aggression. We join other well-meaning Nigerians in praying for your unequalled success in the very sensitive and onerous tasks of leading the country’s defence and security”

In his remarks, the Chief of Defence, Gen Irabor, who commended Gov Ugwuanyi for his hospitality and immeasurable support to the military, disclosed that they were in Enugu to reach out to their troops in furtherance of their mandate to ensure peace and security of the country in keeping with the directives given to them by President Buhari.

Stating that it is the responsibility of every citizen of Nigeria to ensure peace and security in the country, the Chief of Defence Staff appreciated the Enugu State government, the traditional and religious institutions in the state, among others, for their active participation in the event.

“I want to thank everyone, especially the government and people of Enugu state for the warm reception we received and equally the support you (Ugwuanyi) have been giving to us as members of the Armed Forces. I will like this spirit of cordiality to prevail,” he said.
