Enugu Youth Coalition has reacted to claims by the former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, that the governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, is planning to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Edwin Obune, and made available to Lanre News on Friday the group said Ugwuanyi is a “beautiful bride that many men would wish to have as wife” because of his unprecedented achievements and the good leadership qualities displayed so far in the state but would like Nigerians to leave him out of partisan matters because there are still many people to be lifted out of poverty in the Coal City.
While political parties are platforms for ascending to power for the sole purpose of delivering good governance to the people, we, however, believe that it is an abuse of office for anyone to abandon this major responsibility and start dissipating energy on partisan matters when there are still battles to be won against poverty, unemployment, Covid-19, youth restiveness and other challenges that confront our people on daily basis.
For us in Enugu, we see no difference between APC, PDP, APGA, YPP or any other political party whatsoever but our major concern is better deal for our people and this political maturity should not be misconstrued to mean that the governor is more interested in partisan matters than delivering good governance to Ndi-Enugu.
The governor is our illustrious son and we are satisfied with the dividends of democracy he is delivering to our people irrespective of party affiliation.
Therefore, we would not like anyone to distract him with partisan talks at the moment because the future of any politician is in the Hands of God and not in the hands of any man or political party as the case may be.
