Commissioner rates Elechi’s govt high

By The Citizen

The Commissioner for Education in Ebonyi, Mr     Ndubuisi Chibueze-Agbo, has rated the performance of Gov. Martin Elechi high, saying he has kept his electoral covenant with the people.

Chibueze-Agbo made the declaration in Ngbo, Ohaukwu Local Government Area when he hosted members of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the less privileged people in the area.

He said the event had provided him the platform to brief the people on the achievements of the state government in its transformation programme.

According to him, the transformation agenda of the administration is an indication of its commitment to fulfilling its electoral promises.

'We have a leader who believes in translating rhetoric into action and whose philosophy is using state resources to provide happiness for the greatest majority.

'Before we came, infrastructure decay was at its peak and we met an inefficient civil service characterised by corruption and mediocrity. Today the story is different.

'Our reforms and transformation agenda have repositioned and redefined governance and we are reaping the dividend of good governance.

'I make bold to say, without sounding immodest, that our governor is keeping his electoral covenant with the people,'' Chibueze-Agbo said.

The commissioner, who said that democracy remained the best option for the people, called for their continued support for the Elechi-led administration.

On education, the commissioner said the state government had established 31 boarding schools and a modern girls' technical college.

He added that the government renovated public primary and secondary schools and granted 38 overseas scholarships for Masters and Doctoral programmes.

Mr Godwin Ishiali, the Chairman of the PDP in the local government, commended the commissioner, saying that the occasion afforded the people the opportunity to be abreast of developments in the state.

Mr Harrison Onwe, the Chairman of the Ebonyi Civil Service Commission, commended the commissioner for his demonstration of love and support for the people.

Onwe, who particularly praised the commissioner for the uplift of the life of the less privileged, described the action as the hallmark of a good leader.

'I call on other political appointees to imbibe the spirit of giving and sharing with the poor and needy in our midst.

'A good leader is one who shares in the pains and joy of those he is leading; let us emulate this humble disposition of our amiable commissioner,'' Onwe said.

Mrs Chinasa Elom and Felicia Agbo who benefited from the commissioner's gifts, thanked him for his gesture and expressed gratitude to God for the materials and cash donated.
