“I am overjoyed to witness this day when the lion hitherto/in coma awakes. The Enugu coalition of business and professional associations is slowly but surely getting back to the times when it was the toast of CIPE both here in Nigeria and the headquarters in the United States.

“May I also put on record the sterling partnership we have been privileged to enjoy under the current government of his Excellency Rt, Hon. Ifeanyi Lawrence Ugwuanyi. Governor of Enugu State. The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Commerce and industry has been a veritable bridge for this partnership and deserves our unfettered recognition for all he has done and continues to do.
