“What we did today was an important piece of our massive grassroot efforts to bring about disruptive governance to Enugu state.
“From the feedback we are getting, it has become clear to ndi Enugu that the incumbent party and its governorship candidate is incapable of addressing the pain points of everyday citizens of the state.
“How can one explain that ndi Enugu do not have potable water when we have water schemes that can provide the needed 150 cubic meters daily if well optimized?
"How did we get it so bad that things like basic sanitation and waste management have been made to look like rocket science?”
Nweke said his goal was not to regurgitate complaints, but to offer workable public policy templates and also energise his supporters to continue their mobilisation efforts to get the citizens to rise and rebuild Enugu.
APGA state chairman, Ndubuisi EnechiOnyia stated that the party APGA has distinguished itself by nominating a credible candidate.
EnechiOnyia said Nweke's meritorious service as minister of information, his values, and vision for a prosperous Enugu, as captured in his manifesto and the incumbent's poor performance, elicited widespread acceptance of APGA.
