Our broad governance objective is to grow the economy of Enugu State by making it a leading destination for business investment and leisure. This far-reaching objective would be achieved by applying a governance philosophy based on the following main principles:
Because government is a continuum, we will take ownership of all projects and programmes initiated and currently being executed by the government. The projects still under construction at handover will be completed for the benefit of Ndi Enugu.
To facilitate effective achievement of the goals of government under this administration, we aim to collaborate with all key stakeholders, especially the following:
- Private Sector – In attracting investment and sharing information to ensure the optimisation of Government policies.
- Generational and Professional Groups – As key drivers of participatory governance and development.
- Development Partners – In attracting investment and programmes
aimed at achieving positive impact on the affairs of the State.
Transparency and Accessibility
We will foster a sense of belonging and unity in Ndi Enugu through seamless and regular sharing of information as well as setting up mechanisms to measure the impact of Government’s actions and policies through feedback channels.
In addition, we shall ensure the publication of monthly State accounts as well as annual audited accounts on a timely basis. We shall also institute a Budget Evaluation and Monitoring Committee that will have members from non-governmental organizations, to accurately capture revenues generated and monitor how monies are spent.
We shall develop, codify and publish an Enugu State Citizen’s Charter, which shall define our promises to Ndi Enugu regarding fiscal responsibility, public financial management and economic development.
Enugu State’s GDP currently stands at $4.4 billion annually. The three top states in the country today by GDP are Lagos State with $37 billion, Rivers State with $27 billion, and Delta with $22 billion. In the next four to eight years we plan to grow our GDP from $4.4 billion to $30 billion.
