Frank Nweke: What Enugu Should Expect When I'm Elected Governor

The Enugu Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Frank Nweke Jr. has outlined some of the things the citizens of the state should expect when he’s elected in the 2023 general election.

The former Minister of Information who was speaking to Enugu Professional Online Publishers (EPOP) at his Enugu residence on Wednesday, said his administration will keep it simple.

“For me, I will keep it simple, resolve the water crisis in a sustainable way, clean up our city, fix our roads and open up new areas where necessary and possible.

“I will invest heavily in technology infrastructure because my first love is the knowledge economy. So we can have a situation where you have young stars that will be here and working for countries all over the world, but you need IT infrastructure, and these aren’t things you do not need to invest in as a government.

“By simply creating the environment, by simply keeping to your word, putting in place a good land system, by reaching out and actively marketing this state, investors will come because the nature of our state, the young population, the design of Enugu and the educational institutions we have here will attract them.

“But if you have a system that doesn’t allow investors to have access to land easily, investors won’t come.

“In the process of keeping it simple, there are things that needs to be done. We have coal and other resources that can be harnessed. But the immediate succour, we need to deal with it. We need to fix our security, water and housing.

About ⅔ of the people living in the urban cities live in slums and there are things you can do immediately to improve their living conditions.”

Frank Nweke said he will replicate what he did when he was the Director-General of Nigeria Economic Council in Enugu, assuring that the economic landmark of the Coal city will take a new shape because he will provide a “very strategic leadership”.

Speaking further, the former chief of staff to Enugu State Government said his administration will be an all inclusive one as he understands the place of the masses in governance, thus he’s calling on the people to “Arise let us rebuild Enugu State, because i realise that you need the partnership and support of the people to succeed in leadership.”

He also decried lack of cohesion amongst South-East leaders adding that he feels that “other regions appears to be more sophisticated than us,” which he said has made the region appear rudderless on issues affecting them politically and otherwise.
