The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) Ebonyi state chapter is stepping forward to join forces with the state government. Their primary objective is to closely oversee and supervise ongoing urban infrastructural renewal projects, ensuring the utmost quality in service delivery.
While actively pursuing urban and rural infrastructural renewal projects, the state government highlighted the importance of receiving support from professional organizations, corporate entities, community associations, and individual stakeholders.
Engr. Enyinnaya Eni, who serves as the State chairman of NSE, led a delegation of members on a courtesy visit to the state Commissioner for Works and Transport. During this visit, he underscored the organization’s commitment to collaborating with the state government and promoting professionalism.
Responding to the delegation’s visit, Engr. Stanley Mbam, the state Commissioner for Works, affirmed the state’s willingness to collaborate with the professional association. He also reiterated Governor Francis Nwifuri’s call for professional bodies to contribute to government programs for the public’s welfare.
The commissioner, who commended the group for the initiative, said ‘I am pleased to welcome you home to your original base. I want to assure you that my office will always be open to welcome you and we cannot do without you. Therefore, feel free anytime to make useful contributions and you can be sure of our full cooperation at all times’.
He reminded them that their roles are very vital and that they cannot afford to be far from the government adding that ‘the Governor understands your value and will be glad to make use of your professional contributions. As for all your requests, please be rest assured that I will make your plight known to the Governor’ he said.
Engr. Eni, who visited the Ministry of Works and Transport earlier, explained that their purpose was to express solidarity with their colleague, the commissioner.
They also voiced their willingness to form a partnership with the state government through the ministry. Engr. Eni took a moment to convey their appreciation to Governor Nwifuru for appointing Engr. Stanley Mbam as Commissioner for Works and for his notable recognition of engineers in his administration.
They characterized Governor Francis Nwifuru of Ebonyi State as a social engineer who values professionalism as a key indicator of effective governance.
He said that the Ministry of Works is the home of all engineers in the state. ‘So our visit is a homecoming. We are ready to partner with the ministry as much as we are equally ready to embark on project supervision as part of our contribution to ensure good quality service delivery in the state. Hon. Commissioner you have our support to work in this office and we shall be readily available anytime you call on us.’
