Enugu: The Enugu State Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Mr Frank Nweke Jr has reiterated his belief in the diversity of Enugu as the home of all Ndigbo, emphasizing that he would show that through the actions and appointments of his Government.
The former Nigerian minister of Information made the assertion this Tuesday afternoon when he met the leadership of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN who after listening him and advising him, prayed for God’s blessings on him.
Addressing the revered clergy men, he lamented “the decline in the state of infrastructure and governance in the state, especially in the past seven years under the present PDP led administration.
“I believe in Shared Prosperity, the best security one can have is it high walls but having neighbors who share in your prosperity instead of wallowing in want and poverty.
“I believe in Enugu’s diversity as the home of all Ndigbo. By God’s grace, I’ll show that through my actions and appointments.”
He spoke of the tremendous achievements his role model, Dr M. I. Okpara, former Premier of Eastern Nigeria, who achieved so much under eight years.
“Leadership is very key in governance, especially public governance. Just as Okpara spread projects across Eastern Nigeria based on comparative advantage and without discrimination, so shall it be with my Government.
“We have to reject the APC, which under President Buhari has shown no regard for Ndigbo, the same goes for the PDP that denied the South East the presidential ticket, contrary to its own constitution”.
He stressed that it was time for Ndị Enugu to vote APGA since both the PDP and APC have failed woefully.
In his own remarks, Bishop Dr Joseph Ajujungwa commended him for his integrity.
“We know you, you have kept your integrity even when you were in Government in Enugu under Chimaroke and when you served as Minister under Obasanjo.
“Our only worry is whether they will allow you to be elected. They don’t allow good people to get elected into office.
In his final remarks, the Chairman, PFN, Enugu State and General Overseer of House of Generals International Church, Maryland, Enugu where the meeting held, Bishop C. N. C Onyeledo urged the Governorship candidate to remember to keep his promises, if elected Governor
“Keep all you said here or I’ll be on air to speak out. All that you said you’ll do, nobody forced you to say them. If you don’t keep them, you’ll have me to contend with. Forget my slim stature” he added on a lighter note.
