The All progressives Congress (APC) has vowed to wrestle power from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State in the 2019 governship election.
The opposition party in the state said PDP has failed the citizens in virtually all sectors of the economy.
Speaking over the weekend at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium Enugu, while formally declaring his intention to vie for the Enugu state governorship position in 2019, under the platform of APC, a former Attorney General, and Commissioner for justice in the state, Barr Ifeanyi Nwoga, pointed out that some critical sectors such as education, health, water and sanitation infrastructure, among others have been in a shamble under the watch of the PDP led government since 1999.
Nwoga, who promised to fix the sectors if elected, assured that his administration would introduce free tuition levy for indigent students of the state as well as embark on aggressive infrastructural development in all the three senatorial districts of the state.
“Our people have been taking for granted for too long, so , if it pleases God, and man, (you people), I will be contesting for the governorship of Enugu State in 2019 under the platform of APC. I will run an anti-corruption led government” he said to his supporters..
“I have not come here to run down or castigate anybody, but to address issues as they affect our people, because APC do not believe in hate speech,” Nwoga stated.
The APC chairman in the state, Dr Ben Nwoye while addressing the mammoth crowd, stated that with the declaration, the dynamics of 2019 politics in the state has changed.
He disclosing that Nwoga has brought to three the number of governorship aspirants that have indicated interest to contest under the party’s platform, a development he noted has not happened in the last five years.
Nwoye, who applauded the aspirants’ bold steps and courage, called on electorate in the state and South-east Nigeria, to embrace APC for the political interest of the region.
He said the party has the necessary structures to send PDP packing from the lion building government house and other political offices in 2019.
