In a passionate charge to traders and shoppers in Afor Ogwuiga and Eke Obinagu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance warned against accepting money in exchange for their votes in the coming election.
Sharing his plans for the people while on a tour of the market, Nweke stated that politics and elections were no longer business as usual.
“Politics should be about the welfare of the people. In the case where a political party has failed to uplift you, the only option left is for you to vote them out and vote for people whose sole interest is to serve you” he said.
In response to his comments, several traders reaffirmed their commitment to voting for competence and character in the coming election, stating that their desire was to have a change in the state of affairs. One of these was Victoria Sylvanus who said they didn’t need any politician’s money.
“We have suffered enough. We want water. We want good roads. We want a good governor like you, Frank Nweke Jr. We don’t want money” she said.
Nweke stated his administration’s goal is to improve the general standard of living in the State by providing the basic things they need such as security, good water supply, good road infrastructure and in particular, to ensure that the markets are renovated for better user experience.
The APGA market tours have been ongoing for months to reach Enugu residents on their turf, listen to their concerns, and share the solutions to earn their support and votes.
