Frank Nweke Jr, the Gubernatorial Candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has restated his commitment to only appoint the best hands to form the next government of Enugu if elected into office in 2023.
He made this promise on Tuesday, at the opening of the 2022 Law Week of the Enugu branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) themed “The Role of Lawyers in Transitional Democracy”.
Addressing his key thrust to deliver quality leadership and governance in Enugu, the APGA governorship-hopeful said that his goal was to build a team of competent individuals with the capacity and character to deliver on every promise made to the people.
“I will not abuse the Office of the Governor by usurping the powers of their office. Instead, I will only appoint individuals with the character, competence and capacity to deliver, and have the discipline to let them do their work.
“I will not award contracts from my office as the Governor. I will create the system and structure that allows my team to work with autonomy. This will also include the Local Government Areas. Funds meant for them will not be hijacked.
“Alongside this autonomy will be radical transparency and accountability by developing a Government Performance Dashboard as a portal accessible by the public. In addition to this performance dashboard where you can view the activities of your elected and appointed officials, there will be an annual State of the State address by your governor and a quarterly Town Hall meeting where you can engage them directly and receive a report of their activities.
“We will also institute the State’s Public Complaints Commission and encourage citizens to share their concerns both digitally and via other traditional methods.” He said.
