We’re determined to change governance in Enugu State – LP
The Labour Party (LP) in Enugu State says it is determined to usher in a different governance structure in the state.
The state Chairman of LP, Mr Casmir Agbo, said this during a one day retreat organised by the party for the 14 LP members-elect to the State House of Assembly.
Agbo said that as the majority in the assembly, the party stood the chance to chart a new course for the state.
“With you as the majority in the house, you must show example. You must show why our people trusted us and gave us the mandate.
“Do not fight anybody but you must take your rightful positions and lead my example,” he said.
Mr Chijioke Edeoga, the governorship candidate of the party in the state, said the retreat was organised to chart the way forward for the new legislators.
He said, though the party was sure of reclaiming its victory at the tribunal, there was need for the party to put the legislators on the right part.
He advised them to shun greed and respect the wishes of the electorate who toiled to vote them into office.
“You are there because someone paid the price. You are there because someone sacrificed for you to be there.
“So, you must make the difference, so that people will not see you as the same, and our victory will be blown away in a jiffy,” he said.
Edeoga said that when LP reclaimed its mandate in the state, he would invite technocrats, who are ready to work to form the government.
A guest Lecturer, Prof. Jude Udenta of the Department of Political Science and Administration, Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT), advised the members-elect to have unity of purpose.
He said that for the legislators to succeed in the house, they should unite and take over all the legislative positions to make it easier for them to achieve their objectives.
The Labour party won 14 out of 24 assembly seats while PDP won 10 seats.
