Ugwuanyi said since assumption of office on May 29, his administration had introduced a couple of new things and likewise gotten awareness of some challenges of the people.
“We wanted to check the actual number of workers in each local government area and since our visits, attendance to work has improved. We were touched by the plight of the people at the various places we visited, particularly the public schools and hospitals.
