The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, Senator Ayogu Eze, Saturday unveiled his manifesto, with a promise to prioritize wealth creation and the welfare of all the citizens of the State.
He made the declaration at his campaign office in Enugu, the state capital.
Senator Eze declared that “we are driven by a vision to lift our people to a development pedestal that will make them independent, confident and self-reliant.
“Our idea is that government can play its catalytic role of arousing a people from inertial and imbuing them with the energy and gravitas to rediscover themselves, their destiny and their mission in life, thereby elevating them to consciousness where they can rise up and take their future into their own hands.”
On his mission in governance, he said his administration would work for the people in a secure atmosphere where the government will become the true servant of the people.
“In other words, we want to return power to the people by making them the true drivers of change, schooled in the art of using the levers of government to engineer a redemptive social transformation.”
He further stated that “government shall provide the enabling environment, policy and infrastructural backbone necessary for the government and the private sector, working together where necessary, under public private partnership, to unlock the key sectors of the economy that will usher in the desired development that will positively impact the lives of the people.”
Eze outlined his 12-point areas of priority to include security, agriculture, education, infrastructure/rural development, healthcare, sports, economy, housing/urban development, transportation, independent power projects, coal, and locality administration.
On his social contract with the Enugu people, the APC candidate promised to “run a goal-oriented administration that is effective, efficient and prudent, and at the same time fully accountable to them.
“We shall communicate with our people and listen to them in a feedback channel that will promote mutual respect, understanding and productive engagement.”
Other speakers at the event, including the State chairman of the party, Dr. Ben Nwoye, a former Speaker of the Enugu State House of Assembly and Senatorial candidate of the party for Enugu North, Rt. Hon, Eugene Odo, among others boasted that the APC would sweep polls in the State in 2019.
