Fiery Catholic priest and the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Emene, Enugu, Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has lauded the performance of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, describing it as an exemplary display of visionary leadership.
Reverend Fr. Mbaka also noted that it was instructive that Ugwuanyi’s administration has enthroned peace across the state and united diverse political interests, urging the people to “continue to support his administration because it has been anointed by God.”
The cleric noted that the governor’s leadership style has fostered development especially in this period of recession, and prayed God to grant him the grace to expand infrastructural growth to suburban communities to link up such areas with the urban centres.
Mbaka spoke during the Holy Mass organised to inaugurate the 2016/2017 Legal Year of the Enugu State Judiciary held at his ministry, with Ugwuanyi in attendance.
Describing the new legal year as “a year of favour”, Mbaka advised legal practitioners to have the fear of God and eschew corruption in the discharge of their responsibilities. He also enjoined the younger practitioners to imbibe the ethic of hard work and discipline that would enable them to rise to the zenith of their career, praying that the new session will usher in a turnaround in their career.
Commenting on the nation’s economy, the priest stated that there are multiple solutions to the economic recession, urging the Federal Government to be more creative and look inward to find ways of diversifying the economic to create jobs and empower the youths.
Other dignitaries who graced the event included the acting Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Priscilla Emehelu; the President of Enugu State Customary Court of Appeal, Hon. Justice George Nnamani; the former Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Innocent Umezulike; the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Enugu State, Hon.
