The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, on Thursday disclosed that he has commissioned an international scholar and development expert, Dr. Ken Ife, who works in the United States of America, to develop a development plan for comprehensive socio-economic development of Enugu West senatorial zone.

This is also as he blamed poor performance by some political actors on their inability to separate governance from politics.

Speaking at Nenwe in Aninri local government of Enugu State during a political rally ahead of the Saturday presidential and national assembly elections, Ekweremadu, who is also Speaker of ECOWAS Parliament, inspected ongoing projects he attracted within Aninri local government area and also inaugurated completed projects.

He promised that in addition to the speedy completion of on-going construction of Oduma-Nenwe road, other roads such as Oduma-Ohaozara (in Ebonyi state) road, Nenwe-Numeh(Nkanu West LGA) road and Nenwe, water project would be executed after the general elections.

“We believe that any road that passes through any community we are representing must be asphalted, so we are determined to see asphalt road at Uhueze, Agbada, Emudo and Amorji. I have a friend called Dr. Ken Ife, he lives and works abroad, I want him to come out.

“The man you are seeing here is doing something for me, what we call the development map of Enugu West (senatorial district); we want to identify those that have water and those that do not have; those that have light and those who do not; those that have road and those that do not; we will make sure we identify those that have school and the type of school they have.

“We have scientific approach to governance, our government is not about politics, we don’t mix politics with governance; we are in government to develop our people and we believe that you cannot do that without giving them employment. So our determination is to ensure that our people have employment.
