Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has reassured the people of Enugu State that his administration will soon unveil its grassroots-based programme that will be all-inclusive.

The chairman announced the council’s decision to name the pavillion after the governor in recognition of his support and contributions to the development of the area.
