The Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi-led administration has donated two additional brand new Toyota Hilux patrol vehicles to the 82 Division of the Nigeria Army in Enugu to further aid its security operations in the state.

Presenting the vehicles to the Garrison Commander, 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Christopher A. Ataki, the governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Simon Uchenna Ortuanya, disclosed that the gesture was in keeping with the present administration’s cardinal objective of sustaining peace and security in the state.

The state government had on different occasions in the past donated security vehicles to the Nigerian army, including 100 units of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM) patrol vans equipped with communication gadgets, procured and distributed proportionally to all the security agencies in the state to aid their operations.

Receiving the vehicles at the Government House in Enugu yesterday, Brig. Gen. Ataki said: “Today is a special day not only for the Nigerian army but for the people of Enugu State.”

The Garrison Commander, therefore, expressed gratitude to Ugwuanyi for the gesture, assuring him and the people of the state that “we will continue to do our best to ensure that the peace we enjoy in the state and indeed across the South-east region is sustained.”
