The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has described Governor
Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State as the best governor in the State
since the return to democracy in 1999.
Chairman of the Enugu State chapter of the PFN, Bishop Dr. Godwin

for a second term in office.
Bishop Madu described Gov. Ugwuanyi as “a good man”, who honours and
worships God and “believes and recognizes everybody”, declaring that
the PFN would do all within her powers to ensure that the governor was
re-elected for a second term in office.

In his remark, the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Ugwuanyi on
Religious Matters, Rev. Chinedu Nwoye, who was at the event, assured
that the government would continue to treat all the residents of the
State with fairness and serve them with the fear of God.
