“This is the time to pay you back with our votes”, Enugu Kenyatta Timber Dealers whose sheds were gutted by fire on March 5, 2018, told Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, after recalling how he wiped their tears by rebuilding their burnt shops and providing each of them with the sum of N100,000 as grant to re-establish their businesses.
Gov. Ugwuanyi and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) train were at the Kenyatta Market, and other markets in Enugu, such as Eke Otu in Amech Awkunanaw, Garki, and Coal Camp, in continuation of their intense door-to-door campaign ahead of the March 9 governorship and state assembly elections canvassing vigorously for votes.
The people’s governor told the jubilant and excited traders and supporters to take the message that “PDP is the way to go” to their families and neighbourhood, stressing that “a vote for Gburugburu is a vote for all the candidates of the PDP in Enugu State”.
Responding, the traders and residents of the state who trooped out in their numbers dancing and chanting solidarity songs told Gov. Ugwuanyi that he does not need to come and campaign to them, as he already has their votes and support.
