“You know that in 1969, Enugu was the capital that saw the most rapidly growing GDP in Africa and in fact, some parts of Europe. That is still possible today,” he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) approved both the direct and indirect mode of primaries for its governorship election scheduled for Saturday, September 29, in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
This was contained in a statement issued by Yekini Nabena, the APC national publicity secretary, on Tuesday, September 25, in Abuja.
Nabena, however, said that the party’s NWC banned its Adamawa state working committee from participating either as delegates or to superintendent over the governorship primaries in the state.
