Barr Sullivan Chime, former Enugu State governor, in a post on Sunday, relishes his past and how his solid beginning solidified his successes in life.
Sullivan is a former commissioner under erstwhile governor Senator Chimaroke Nnamani. He was later to become Nnamani’s successor. Sullivan is seen as a modern governor of Enugu State because of his charisma, legacy projects and elitism.
In a Facebook post, the former attorney general and commissioner for justice quoted writer Dale Carnegie’s famous statement: “The past is where you learn the lessons. The future is where you apply the lessons. Don’t give up in the middle.”
The Wikipedia reports that, “Sullivan Iheanacho Chime (born 10 April 1959) was elected governor of Enugu State in April 2007, taking office on 29 May 2007. He was reelected on 26 April 2011.
“Chime has five children: Ada Chime, Nnamdi Chime, Tochukwu Chime, Ezinne Chime, Ugomsi Chime.”
Chime, reports our correspondent, served his governorship era as a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party. He also annointed the current governor of Enugu State, Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
Sullivan however left the PDP, and currently a staunch member of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Dale Carnegie was an American writer and lecturer, and the developer of courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking, and interpersonal skills.
