Enugu - The governor-elect of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has unveiled a four-point agenda for his administration.

He said: "I renew the message of peace, hope and development of our dear state and the principles of seamless continuity and consolidation.

"I reaffirm my commitment to seeing through the legacy of the present four-point agenda and once again commit to all our campaign promises in the 17 local government areas of the state.

"I am deeply humbled by that mandate reposed in me and I hereby accept it with all sense of humility and gratitude."
