The Transition Committee Chairman of Nsukka Local Government Area, Hon. Mrs. Chinwe Ugwu has drawn the ire of residents of Enugu State and beyond after she rolled out a wheelbarrow empowerment programme.
Ugwu is one of the chairmen that were appointed last December, ahead of the Local Government election slated for February this year.
However, in a move many have described as ‘shocking and insulting’, she launched a wheelbarrow empowerment scheme on Monday, at the Council secretariat.
Just last week, some youths had besieged the Nsukka Local Government secretariat in protest, chanting solidarity songs in her favour, while also blasting the immediate past chairman, Hon. Patrick Omeje. The youths had demanded that Ugwu be allowed to contest as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, a candidate in the forthcoming election.
