An industrialist, Ekene Uzodinma has picked the United Progressive Party (UPP) nomination form for Enugu State governorship election.
National Chairman of the party, Chekwas Okorie, presented the forms to him at the National Secretariat of UPP in Abuja yesterday.
Uzodinma expressed confidence that he will win the forthcoming gubernatorial poll in Enugu State on UPP platform.
He said he is on a rescue mission to save the longsuffering people of Enugu State from inept, visionless and purposeless leadership that has impeded development of the State since 1999.
He pledged to transform Enugu State if voted into Office in 2019 governorship election in the State and implement a development scheme called “The New Enugu Project (TNEP)”.
He said TNEP is aimed at creating and charting a common course to a glorious future which will be fair to all Enugu people and Nigerians at large.
Uzodinma said he has developed a blueprint for governing Enugu State and assembled a think-tank that will ensure rapid advancement of the State.
A grassroots politician and administrator, Uzodinma said the good people of Enugu State are tired of the prevalent status quo and have decided to take their destinies in their hands and return power to the people.
He frowned at the endemic irresponsibility and non-responsive leadership of the PDP-led government in Enugu State and called on the electorate to vote for UPP candidates in all positions in 2019 general polls.
Uzodinma said he has developed five strategic master-plans that will restore Enugu State as commercial and tourism centre in Nigeria as obtainable in the Eastern Region of the 1960s with Enugu as its capital.
