The Speaker of Ebonyi State House of Assembly has charged Development Centre (DC) Coordinators in the state to remain committed and steadfast in grassroots development, urging them to deal directly with their community members to know their challenges and see a way of proferring solution to it.
Hon. Nwifuru expressed this while addressing 64 Development Centre Coordinators in Ebonyi State, who came visiting him earlier on Tuesday, bearing bountiful good wishes and solidarity messages, ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The visit was an avenue for the Gubernatorial Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ebonyi State, to rub minds with the DC coordinators, and chart the way forward as it concerns 2023 elections.
Addressing the coordinators, the Speaker commended them for their visit, kind wishes and support.
He encouraged them, as grassroots mobilizers, to always deal directly with their people in the village and identify with them, instead of staying in town without recourse to issues at home.
He further charged the coordinators to go about their duties with every sense of dedication and love. He implored them to be of good assistance to the incoming local government chairmen, to ensure they learn the terrains very well and deliver. He assured them of proper reward for their work, going into the campaign and beyond.
While encouraging them to remain steadfast in their works, Hon. Nwifuru reminded them that their positions even that of himself, are a privilege from God. Not because they’re the best persons for the assignments, but out of God’s benevolence. As such, they must deliver their mandates to the best of their abilities and not envy anyone along the line.
Responding on behalf of the DC Coordinators, the Vice Chairman of the forum and Coordinator of Ohaozara West Development Centre, Hon. Patrick Enyi, praised the synergy that exists between various arms of government in the state, an understanding which has seen tremendous development in Ebonyi State.
He pointed out that Mr. Speaker’s qualities of accommodating young people around him, is key to proper grassroots politics and development.
Hon. Enyi noted that they’re aware of the project in sight, and are on hand to identify with him.
He went on to pledge their unalloyed support for the Honourable Speaker, as they have never failed in any of their projects and shall continue to make the state proud.
