Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has congratulated his Enugu State counterpart, Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, on his 58th birthday, describing him as “a committed and selfless public servant.”
He said Governor Ugwuanyi, who clocks 58 on Sunday, March 20, has contributed in no small measure to the growth and development of Enugu State and Nigeria at large as a governor and former federal lawmaker.
Sanwo-Olu, who described Ugwuanyi as a “visionary leader” in a congratulatory message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, on Saturday, said the Enugu State number one citizen, has displayed pragmatic leadership with selflessness and dedication by rendering quality service to people at state and national level in the last 16 years.
“On behalf of my adorable wife, Ibijoke, and the good people of Lagos State, I join family, friends, political associates and the people of Enugu State to congratulate my dear brother, Governor Ugwuanyi on his 58th birthday.
“Governor Ugwuanyi’s input in the growth and development of Enugu is pragmatic testament to his visionary leadership. His developmental strides in Enugu State and national growth are noticeable in different areas of endeavours.
“His penchant for diligence is evident in his contributions toward the development of Nigeria’s socio-economic and political landscape based on his service to the nation as a member of the House of Representatives before assuming his current status as Governor of Enugu State.
“On this occasion of his 58th birthday, I wish my brother good health and wisdom as he continues to render more service to humanity, his state and our dear country,” Governor Sanwo-Olu said.
