The Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Kalu and Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde have sent felicitations to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi as he clocked 58.
In separate statements by their spokespersons, they described the celebrant as a compassionate politician and seasoned public administrator.
Orji Kalu particularly noted the giant accomplishments of Ugwuanyi as the helmsman in Enugu.
He said that the good deeds of the governor have earned him large and cult-like followership in the political space.
Meanwhile, Governor Seyi Makinde said the celebrant like his other colleagues in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had shown that there is still hope for Nigeria.
“And it is important to celebrate him and pray for long life and more grace for him.
“Gburugburu as he is called is one politician I always commend for his love for his state and his passion for a better Nigeria.
“He embodies the concept of a detribalised Nigerian who has displayed pragmatic leadership with selflessness and dedication.
“Brother, not only are you a shining light among the PDP Governors, who by their sterling performances in office have shown that Nigeria can be better, you are an active player in the effort to rescue the country and bring about the Nigeria of our collective dreams.
“As you add another year, it is my prayer that God continues to sustain you and enable you to do more for humanity,” Makinde stated.
