The state’s executive council on Wednesday lauded the governor for the ‘gesture’ which they tagged an act of ‘humanity in him and willingness to provide leadership’.

The Information and Strategy Commissioner, , noted that the object of car gifts was primarily to inspire the judges and promote their job.

The commissioner said what was instructive was Governor Uzodinma’s ingenuity in providing funds for buying the vehicles from the state’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) bank.

Emelumba further apprised that the governor saved the state from needless and wasteful financial waste.

He noted that the government procured the vehicles at the cost of N22million per vehicle compared to the budgeted N37million per vehicle by the ousted government, saving almost 500million from the cost of the 23 vehicles.

According to him, the Council also discovered with dismay that some Permanent Secretaries did not make use of the official vehicles provided to them by the State Government for the day-to-day operation of their official duties, thereby presenting the State in a bad light and denying civil servants the magnanimity of the current administration.
