“The Forum further notes your other giant strides and Legacy achievements in office, especially in the area of urban and rural renewal initiatives, modernization and upgrade of the tertiary institutions owned by the State before your assumption of office and your establishment of new ones and the prompt payment of workers’ salaries over the years. We note also your sustained efforts in infrastructure provision, education, health, and poverty alleviation initiatives. We indeed commend the prudence and fiscal responsibility you have brought to bear on the management of the lean resources of the State”
The Forum commended Governor Ugwuanyi for “your valuable contributions to its progress, the much-needed reforms in our party PDP and the country generally. We recall with nostalgia how you expertly handled the zoning issue in PDP as Committee Chairman.”
