Contractors, Politicians Conspiring Against Ugwuanyi—Coalition

Enugu Youth Coalition

By Dipo Olowookere

Some contractors in Enugu State have been accused of working in collaboration with politicians in the South Eastern state to drag the state backwards.

A group known as the Enugu Youth Coalition, in a statement, said it has on good authority that these conspirators are working to sabotage the government of Mr Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who is the Governor of the state.

In the statement, the coalition said the contractors and some high-profile politicians have a clandestine plot to influence unfavourable opinions against the government.

The group said politicians have connived with these contractors to execute unsatisfactory projects so as to use them to lambast the Governor, who they said has transformed the state.

“These contractors are working hand-in-glove with some political desperadoes to thwart the efforts of Governor Ugwuanyi to change the destiny of Enugu in the nearest future,” the National Coordinator of the group, Dr Edwin Obune, said in the statement made available to Business Post.

He further said it is morally unjustifiable and politically incorrect for some people to be part of a system and still be conspiring with some enemies in plotting the downfall of the same system over an ambition whose future is in the Hands of God.

“We have said it severally and we will continue to say it, that power belongs to God.

“We have seen instances where people who plotted and perfected plans to grab power at all cost fell by the wayside even before the time. This is because it is only God that determines destiny in the affairs of men.

“Therefore, we are warning these contractors to either remain loyal and faithful to the government by executing projects according to government standards and specifications or be shown the way out,” Mr Obune, who thundered “enough is enough!” in the statement, said.

“We also call on Ndi-Enugu not to allow the action and activities of the fifth-columnists within the system to dampen their supports and prayers for the state government because the victory of evil over good is only temporal.

“In the same vein, we advise our people to continue to stay safe until we have collectively flattened the curve on Covid-19.

“Together, we shall overcome because Enugu State is in the Hands of God!” he declared.
