While congratulating Mrs. Tor on her new appointment, Ugwuanyi prayed for God’s guidance and protection, assuring her of his administration’s willingness and readiness to avail her all necessary support and collaboration to maximize the state’s opportunities in the civil and public services of the federation.
“I pray that the good Lord grants you the health, presence of mind, focus and courage to enthrone a new paradigm that will expand the frontiers of Enugu State opportunities in the Federal Civil and Public Services,” governor said.
The Federal Commissioner, eulogized Ugwuanyi for his outstanding leadership qualities and also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for reviving the commission based on “the need to maintain balance, fairness, equity and justice in the country.
