The governor’s approval was contained in a statement by the managing director of Enugu State Transport Company (ENTRACO), Mr Bob Itanyi. Itanyi said the free transportation was in keeping with the governor’s ‘avowed commitment to the wellbeing of the citizens of the state, irrespective of where they are residing’.
According to Itanyi, “Registered indigenes of Enugu State living in faraway states in the country, such as Zamfara, Kebbi, Yobe and Jigawa, have been included in this year’s free transportation exercise.”
While stating that all protocols and guidelines for the containment of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) would be strictly adhered to, Mr Itanyi said that the time-table for the exercise would be released in due course.
In his words, “We also wish to use this medium to thank Gov Ugwuanyi for the fatherly and mature manner he has been handling the affairs of Enugu State, as well as his love, kindness and passion for the wellbeing of the people of the state.”
