The Enugu State 2023 Gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Frank Nweke Jnr. on Thursday said his administration will enable friendly parameters of Ease of Doing Business in the state.
Speaking at the Town Hall meeting organized by the Enugu State Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, Nweke reiterated that investors need not go through strangling conditions just so as to set up business in a state thus scaring genuine investors away to the detriment of the state’s economic growth.
Highlighting the challenges currently faced in the state with obtaining legal documents to perfect land purchases, building permits, etc., the APGA gubernatorial candidate described it as a herculean task; he promised to reverse the trend for the good of the state.
“We will make the process for land acquisition easy and transparent, ensuring that investors feel comfortable coming to do business in any part of Enugu.”
Nweke further stated, “We will ensure the effective and transparent regulation of Land Administration in Enugu State with the introduction of the Land Administration Management System – LAMS, a GIS (Geographical Information Solution) and by publishing land ownership publicly.”
“Our immediate target with E-LAMS is to guarantee the speedy completion of transactions with C-of-O or Governor’s consent issued within 7 business days while aiming at delivering on another cardinal plan of improving urban planning and infrastructure development…”
The APGA gubernatorial candidate also vowed, “We will make a conscious departure from the politics of managing poverty to a new paradigm of wealth creation by harnessing Enugu’s comparative advantages towards enabling its people and businesses enjoy the best life and achieve their full potential.”
Promising to make his administration transparent, the former Minister says corrupt practices thrive in the dark; hence he will employ the use of technology, global best practice processes and ensure transparency in Enugu state.
“I am thankful to the members of ECCIMA, ECOBPA, the business community and ndi Enugu for a wonderful conversation about the practical ways we will improve the ease of doing business in Enugu State. I appreciate your questions, brilliant ideas and kind words,” Frank Nweke Jnr.
