ENUGU — The Enugu State Government in collaboration with the Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, on Wednesday, distributed welding machines to welders and blacksmiths at Coal Camp Enugu.
The lucky welders are members of the Blacksmith Technical Union, Coal Camp Enugu, chosen through a lucky dip exercise organized at the venue by Government officials.
The welding machines provided by NIMASA were presented to the artisans by the Enugu State Deputy Governor, Mrs. Cecilia Ezeilo.
During the presentation, Ezeilo revealed, “The Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has directed the equipment be donated to artisans in Coal Camp, Enugu, to assist you in advancing your business”.
“The choice of welders at Coal Camp is informed by the Governor’s compassionate spirit and commitment to the wellbeing of the people, especially persons that use these machines in their day to day activities.”
The Deputy Governor therefore enjoined the beneficiaries to make proper use of the machines while urging those who did not benefit from the exercise to be patient and accept it in good faith.
Commending the kind gesture, Mr. Benjamin Ikah, Chairman of Tricycle Riders Association in Enugu State, said that the whole exercise portrays the Governor’s interest in the welfare of the lowly in the society.
Ikah then charged the beneficiaries to put the machines to good use and always uplift the Governor in prayers.
In their response, the elated beneficiaries thanked Gov. Ugwuanyi for his benevolence and commitment to their welfare.
“We never expected such gift from the Governor or any establishment and with this machine we promise to serve the public efficiently and improve our income,” they said.
