Anambra: LP Candidate, Agbasimalo, Promises Enabling Environment For Business
The Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Anambra State forthcoming election, Obiora Agbasimalo, at the weekend vowed to create an enabling environment for business and services to thrive in the state, if elected governor of the state.
Agbasimalo stated this at the campaign ground in Onitsha, Anambra State, at the weekend ahead of the governorship elections taking place on November 6 this year.
He noted that:
The business of any government is to create an enabling environment for businesses and services to thrive as well as attract private sector investors to grow the economy and promote the welfare of the people.
My government will invest heavily in critical infrastructure like roads, power, housing, water supply, and waste management among others; not only to enhance the ease of doing business but also to make life and living more meaningful.
Agbasimalo further vowed to set the right tone for good governance and build strong, effective institutions with men and women of character, honour, integrity and self-respect directing the affairs of the state in an open and transparent manner.
According to him,
With deep sense of focus and commitment, we shall, in no distant time, change the negative perception, ethics and values of the public service to engender patriotism, competition, productivity and excellence in service delivery.
To achieve the desired result, he iterated that his government shall review and reduce the size and structure of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to remove areas of duplication, conflicts and waste to enhance operational efficiency and save money for further development.
Speaking as a youth and youngest candidate among others, he declared:
I am a youth. I have the interest of the youths at heart. I’m your servant; vote for me, and I will serve you.
Speaking also, the National President of the Labour Party, Mr. Julius Abure, commended the qualities of Agbasimalo. According to him, “He is a youth, and enlightened.
“It is good for a youth to take over from us. Our destination is prosperity. And Agbasimalo will be able to lead Anambra people to their destination,” as he implored supporters to ensure they turn their energy into results at the elections on November 6.
