ENUGU – GOVERNOR Sullivan Chime of Enugu State has promised more amenities for the people when re-elected into office, just as he rounds off his local government campaign tours Friday.
Speaking to a huge crowd at the headquarters of Igbo-Eze South Council, Monday, the governor reiterated the commitment of his government to take development to the grassroots.
Said he: “While thanking all of you for this massive turnout and the kind words of all the speakers, I want to restate that we remain ever committed to developing both our urban and rural areas. That’s why we’re doing the (Nsukka-Ibagwa-Ogrute-Ette) road and that also explains why the Iheaka-Uhunowerre-Ibagwa-Itchi-Unadu-Alor Agu road is in our budget for this year.
“When I hear our people thank me for the villages that we gave water, electricity and other necessary amenities, it is, to me, a bigger challenge that we have more to do.
Our commitment is that every community in our state will have water and be linked to the national grid before we leave office.
“We’re running for a second term because we have unfinished businesses with our people, and that is the resolve to take amenities to our people wherever they live; it is the resolve to create the enabling environment for our people to prosper and for investors to come into our state and help employ our youths.”
Governor Chime also reassured the citizens that his administration would continue to provide security for both urban and rural dwellers, while sustaining the programmes and projects that have improved the standard of living of the people.
He made this remark during his tour of Enugu South Local Government Area, Tuesday. “Today, the city of Enugu is well lit at night and we have traffic lights at some strategic junctions. These are little provisions that no government should celebrate because they are basic duties any government must provide. Our promise is to provide more of these services that will improve the lots of our people.”
The governor rounds up his campaign rallies of the councils tomorrow when the train terminates at his Udi Local Government Area after today’s rally at Igbo-Eze North.
