The governor Enugu State, Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, on Saturday paid an unscheduled visit to the Enugu-Ebonyi border to monitor the compliance with the Federal Government’s ban on inter-state movement of persons and non-essential goods.
The governor who met over 150 vehicles queued at the Enugu axis of the boundary, attempting to enter the state, painstakingly trekked a long distance interrogating the drivers, one by one, to ascertain their eligibility for entering the state.
Gov Ugwuanyi during the cross examination of the drivers identified over 100 vehicles conveying non-essential goods and turned them back to Ebonyi.
Recall that Gov Ugwuanyi, in the wake of the pandemic, directed all the 17 Local Government Council Chairmen “to mobilize all Development Center Administrators, Councilors, Traditional Rulers and Presidents General of Communities as well as Neighborhood Watch Groups and Youth Leaders within their jurisdiction to man the borders of their local Government Council Areas that are contiguous with other States.
