Anambra LP candidate promises good governance

23 October 2013, 07:44

Awka - The deputy governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Anambra, Dr Emeka Eze, has said the party will turn the state around if voted into power.

Eze told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Tuesday that the party would ensure adequate security, sustainable industrialisation, commercial agriculture and massive employment.

“First of all, we will run a transparent, accountable, truth and just government. We will tackle insecurity from the two perspectives of manpower and infrastructural deficiencies.”

“We will revamp the education system, increase the quality of education, reduce the cost of education and empower the youth by ensuring that they make positive use of their strength and talents,”  he said.

Eze said that agriculture would be mechanised, food storage facilities would be provided with massive rehabilitation of roads for easy access to farmlands.

“We will enthrone infrastructural development like reconstructing and beautifying the capital territory, building an inland container terminal as well as having an international airport.”

“Finally, we are going to do a lot of work in the Diaspora, where our people living outside the state will feel the impact of the governance,” Eze said.
