In honour of his unprecedented developmental achievements during his stint as Transition Committee-Chairman of Orumba South Local Government area, the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) recently organised a send-off ceremony for Chief Raymond Onyegu.
This laudable act was the first in the history of the body. The event took place at the Orumba South Council Secretariat and was organised by the NULGE, Orumba South chapter and the entire staff of the council to appreciate the efforts of Chief Onyegu who was instrumental to the development of the local government area in his three years and four months administration.
Speaking at the event, Comrade Ify Mokah, Orumba South NULGE Chairman revealed that the honour given to the Chairman was in recognition of his selfless
services in the area, including attracting and funding immigration and security operations in the area, sponsoring free medical service for the local government workforce, among others.
In the same vein, Comrade Chikwelu Adigwe, State President of NULGE emphasised on the good working relationship between Chief Onyegu and the local government workforce. As a matter of fact, he described him as a politician and human manager,
whose legacies in office are worthy of emulation.
Chief Onyegu while expressing his appreciation for the kind gesture, took out time to thank the state Governor, Chief Sir Willie Obiano, Orumba South
stakeholders, and the entire people of the area for the opportunity to serve. He also attested that the local government workforce was instrumental to all he
had achieved as a Council Chairman.
In his words, “I’m leaving with a great sense of nostalgia, and will assist the incoming Chairman to achieve results”
Presentation of portrait to Chief Onyegu by the NULGE was among the highpoints of the event, even as security agencies were on ground to attest to Chief Onyegu’s achievements in promoting security in the area.
