Jubilation as Chime returns to Enugu, keeps mum

By Tony Edike, Enugu
Governor Sullivan Chime of EnuguState, yesterday, returned to a tumultuous reception in Enugu after his extended vacation abroad.

Chime, who wore dark glasses and acknowledged cheers from the crowd that gathered at Akanu Ibiam airport, Enugu, did not speak with newsmen who were anxious to have his message to the people he left behind for about five months.

Hundreds of Enugu people including state government and local government officials converged at the airport and after receiving him at the airport, they escorted him in a long convoy to the Government House.

The Governor who had arrived Abuja, Wednesday from London, touched down at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport Enugu around 3.pm yesterday amid cheers from the crowd of enthusiastic citizens who had thronged the airport since morning to welcome him.

He was welcomed on arrival by the Acting Governor, Mr. Sunday Onyebuchi accompanied by his wife, Nneka, national and state House of Assembly members and other top government officials.

Spotting a cream white jacket, blue stripped shirt and a pair of black trousers, Chime acknowledged cheers from the ecstatic crowd that included many federal and state legislators, traditional rulers and top government officials before being driven to the Governor’s Lodge.

Another huge crowd of singing and dancing people was at hand at the Lodge, where Governor Chime and his wife, Clara took time to receive many guests. It was also celebration galore on the streets of Enugu as soon as news filtered in that the governor had arrived the CoalCity, with the people chanting victory songs. His return finally marked the end of his absence as the excited residents heaved sighs of relief.
