Frank Nweke Jr. Visits Nkerefi Community, Promises To Address Lack Of Basic Amenities If Elected



The people of Nkerefi in Nkanu-East local government area of Enugu state, have appealed to the governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Frank Nweke Jr, to address the lack of infrastructure in the area.

They made the appeal at a town hall meeting when they played host to the APGA Governorship candidate at Nkerefi ward one and two.

The people who claimed to have been sidelined by the PDP-led administration said there is no functional social facility in the Community.

In a remark, one of the residents pointed out that the community lacks a functional health care facility, schools, and access roads, calling on Nweke to come to their aid once elected as the Governor.

While declaring support for the APGA Governorship candidate, the woman leader of Nkerefi ward 1 recounted failed promises by the present government in addressing the issues facing the community.

Responding, the APGA Governorship Candidate and three-time Minister, Frank Nweke Jr assured them of transformative leadership that will address their essential needs. He noted the need for dedicated and active governance at the local level, promising to make it a priority for his administration.

“Under my leadership, I will ensure that the funds allocated to the Local Government are not tampered with and it will be used for the development of essential infrastructure for communities. The State and the local government will work closely to ensure sustainable development in every area.”

He reaffirmed his desire for sustainable development in the state and pledged that the dilapidated roads and bridges linking the community to other parts of the states would be rehabilitated under his administration.

Also on the tour were the APGA Deputy Governor Candidate, Dr Edith Ugwuanyi, the House of Representative Candidate for Nkanu East, Dickson Orji, the House of Representative Candidate for Enugu North and South, Nonso Nnamani, the House of Assembly Candidate for Nkanu East Constituency, Hon.

“It Is The Turn Of Ndi Enugu” – Frank To Residents As APGA Storms More Markets In Enugu




Frank Nweke Jr, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Enugu State, on Thursday charged traders in Ogbete and Afia 9 markets, Enugu, to take ownership of the next government in Enugu State by voting in APGA in the forthcoming election.

Nweke who told traders and buyers that APGA’s mission was to liberate the State from the shackles of bad governance unleashed by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), reiterated the history of the APGA as one founded on the Igbo principle of shared prosperity with the great Odumegwu Ojukwu as a founding father.

In agreement with the concerns raised by the people, Nweke noted the absence of potable water, rising insecurity, non-payment of salaries and pensions, unavailability of jobs and the deepening economic crisis under the PDP-led administration.

He assured the people of his administration’s commitment to tackling the issues that directly affect them and urged them to become a part of the process by ensuring that they refuse to sell their votes to the highest bidders.

“When you sell your votes, you have given looters your own position in the government and you will lose your voice for the next four years. It is your turn to be in government. APGA will make the government house the People’s Building” Nweke said.

Several residents, traders and buyers alike present in the market spoke with hope and a firm resolve to see a new future in Enugu under APGA.

An octogenarian who said he worked together with former President Obasanjo at 58 Ibadan Street Ebute-Metta West, as the head of Electrical Engineering in his Department, said that God will remove all the obstacles from Nweke’s way if he is the Lord’s anointed.

“I was shuttling between Lagos and Abuja when Frank Nweke Jr served as Minister and for me personally, his antecedents made me want him to serve as Governor. We elders are praying that God should crown someone with conscience. I pray that God removes all obstacles from Frank Nweke Jr in Jesus’ name,” he prayed.

Ogechi Godfrey, Chinonso Uzoma and Okey Morocco expressed unflinching support for Nweke whom they said is their choice as Governor due to his simplicity, honesty and good track record.

Madam Joy, a clothes retailer, said that the market women group she belongs to had been pressured to join the PDP, but that they have remained resilient. She therefore affirmed her total support for Nweke stressing that the APGA flag bearer is their own.

Charity Njoku, a trader said she knows APGA flag bearer as a man with a kind heart and that he is the sort of person that will bring the change that many have thought impossible.

Ms. Ofoka, a fruit seller and Ginika Mbah a meat seller expressed support for Frank Nweke Jr adding that with him as Governor, a big change in Enugu State would be evident.

“Frank Nweke Jr should remember us when he gets to office as Governor. He should provide water and power for us. He is one of us, so we are solidly behind him,” said Ms. Onyekperem.
