In his new year message, titled, “It is well with Enugu State”, Sen. Eze said that Enugu State will experience a new lease of prosperity and even development when his government takes off in May 2019.
He assured the people that his government will restore the people’s confidence in governance by embarking on a number of people-oriented programmes and projects.
Promising to create jobs through innovative re-engineering of the agricultural and housing sectors, Sen. Eze told the people to come out in their numbers to cast their votes for President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC.
He promised to pay Enugu workers a living wage that will be commensurate with their contributions and sacrifices in building the State, and assured pensioners that they would not be left out.
He also promised to restructure the education sector by making education compulsory up to the secondary school level, adding that said “vocational education will receive a pride of place as a means of empowering the people and restoring our artisanal advantage that has been eroded by neglect over the years.”
Sen. Eze also promised to rebuild the health sector of the State, adding that he would make healthcare free for women and children.
“Healthcare is fundamental to the wellbeing of any society. To prosper, the citizens of any society must be healthy and clear headed. We shall focus on rebuilding our health institutions and introducing innovations that will make a Enugu a compulsory stop for health tourism in Africa”, Sen. Eze noted.
He asked the people to shun violence and rigging during the coming elections but instead to stand firm and ensure that their votes count at the end of the day.
He thank the people of Enugu State for declaring en masse for the APC, vowing that Enugu will soon become one of the reference states in Nigeria, in the area of development and good governance.
