Enugu done well in infrastructure development – Ugwuanyi

The Executive Governor of Enugu State, Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has declared that his administration has done well in infrastructure development, reports ITRealms.

Gov. Ugwuanyi in a goodwill message to the Guild of Corporate Online Publishers (GOCOP) during the first annual conference of the group at the weekend, made available to ITRealms by the chief press secretary, Uwakwe Abugu.

According to Abugu, the Ugwuanyi administration has done considerably well in infrastructure development as it has begun its plan to create more urban centres and break the jinx of having Enugu as a one-city state.

The result of this exhibition of utmost responsible disposition, he said, in handling the finances of the state which, of course, earned the governor awards and plaudits from organizations, groups and individuals.

As said by Ugwuanyi, one other major step taken so far by this administration is the reinforcement of the state’s internally-generated revenue machinery by bringing in professionals to run the affairs of the Inland Revenue Board.

“So far, it has upped the ante in revenue generation beyond the imagination of close observers of that sector of the state economy, making it possible for the state to continue to meet up its obligations at the level it has done so far,” he said.

Pointing out that, irrespective of the overriding problem of inability of many state governments to pay salaries and meet up with other responsibilities of governance, Enugu State government has continued to pay salaries and pensions between the 23rd and 25th of every month.

“Yet, our best strategy from the onset has been to run a very frugal system based on fiscal discipline at all levels of government,” Ugwuanyi emphasized.

The governor who described members of the Guild as responsible operators of the respected new media platforms across our dear nation, commended GOCOP on the theme of 2017 conference which centres on “Sustaining Growth Through Diversification of the Economy.”
