…Pictures of the Secretariat He Built Without Noise, Propaganda and Arrogant Grandstanding
The immediate past governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime, recently completed his eight-year tenure on May 29.
Perhaps, one of the legacies that will live after him is, the peace and security he ushered in, on arrival at the Lion Building, and which he sustained till 2015. Before his ascension, Enugu residents lived with uncertainty. There were rampant killings and robberies that took nightlife and development away. Residents were in fear and slept with one eye opened. It was common sight before his arrival to see several apartments barricaded with iron bars, and streets becoming empty as early as 7pm.
The security boost by the governor was the tonic needed to launch the state on the path of development and economic growth.
The state was able to have street lights functioning again. Several urban roads were opened to reduce traffic jams. Chime’s administration was able to maintain some level of sanctity on the roads with constructions, and traffic lights installed at designated junctions. Orderliness was also achieved with the ban on the operation of commercial motorcycles. Though, many have criticised his administration, they are no doubt, reaping the impact, as there are less accidents on their roads.
One of the enduring legacies of the Chime administration is the recently completed construction of the new workers’ secretariat in Enugu. The project is expected to give a new lease of life to the state’s workforce. Workers can now boast of Internet facilities and work with relative ease, unlike previous chaotic arrangements where they barely give their best, due to poor working conditions.
This is the new state secretariat built by the immediate past governor of Enugu State, Mr. Sullivan
The ELITES gathered that Chime built the secretariat without noise, propaganda or arrogant grandstanding, that usually characterizes such projects when embarked on by other state governors.
