Cab operators in Enugu State, under the auspices of Coal City Cabs/Taxi Operators Union, have expressed gratitude to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for his administration’s sustained efforts in cushioning the effects of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic on the people of the state, especially the less privileged and groups, through distribution of palliatives.

 

The cab operators who spoke through their Chairman, Comrade Samuel Ajogwu, also commended Gov. Ugwuanyi for his untiring efforts towards containing the spread of the virus in the state.

Describing Gov. Ugwuanyi as “our father who cares for his children”, Comrade Ajogwu said that it was heartwarming that “our dear Governor, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi in the midst of his infrastructural development across Enugu State; in the midst of his efforts in checking the spread of this COVID-19, deems it necessary to provide us with these food items as palliatives”.
