CCN lauds Ugwuanyi on peace, good governance,


Leadership of the Christian Council of Nigeria (CCN) has described Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s commitment towards supporting and identifying with all churches in the state as an exceptional feat worthy of emulation.It also commended Ugwuanyi for entrenching peace and good governance as well as providing quality leadership.CCN made the commendations when its leadership visited Governor Ugwuanyi at the Government House, Enugu, on Wednesday, to formally inform and invite him to its 31st general assembly and 93rd anniversary celebrations which began in Enugu, yesterday.CCN President, Benebo Fubara-Manuel, commended Governor Ugwuanyi for his sustained support, stressing that the governor has always been a supporter of CCN member-churches.He disclosed that Governor Ugwuanyi has made everybody and every church his own.“I was able to talk to people of Enugu State to ask what church you (Ugwuanyi) belong to. Some said Catholic, and some said Anglican. You are just a member of all the churches and that makes us happy. We want to thank you for your good works in Enugu State; good governance to Enugu people, peace in Enugu land; your ability to carry everybody along – a factuality the bishops testified about you.”The president of CCN pointed out that it was because of the peace and security in Enugu that the state is witnessing influx of people and prayed that God exposes strange persons who have entered the state to cause disturbance and undermine the untiring efforts of Governor Ugwuanyi in securing life and property in the state.He, therefore, lauded the governor for his unrelenting efforts to maintain peace and security in Enugu State as well as provision of massive infrastructure developments in urban and rural areas of the state such as the first flyover to be constructed by the government.“We thank you (Ugwuanyi) for your infrastructure developments. We have seen the first flyover in this state. We were told it was constructed by your administration. Internal roads are being built and development projects executed in many parts of Enugu State, especially in the rural areas, and we are grateful for all the works you have done. We are here to also pray with you. To pray that God will strengthen you as you conclude your second term as governor.“We are here to pray your immense contributions will not be lost; that the administration and administrations that will take over from you will build on what you have done; would not do anything to devour and erase your footprints but will do everything to enhance the good works and would allow continuity in governance to take place for the good of Enugu people.“We are here to pray with you that prosperity will continue in this land.”The CCN leadership, therefore, offered special prayers for Governor Ugwuanyi and beseeched God to continue to bless, guide, protect and prosper the governor, and for the peaceful and successful end of his tenure in 2023.Other leaders of CCN in the delegation were the Primate of Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Henry Chukwudum Ndukuba, the Prelate of Methodist Church Nigeria, Oliver Abba, the Vice President of CCN, Israel Akanji, the Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province (Anglican Communion), Emmanuel Chukwuma, and the Archbishop of Enugu Methodist Church Nigeria, Christopher N.
