A governorship hopeful in the 2023 election under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Ezeh Emmanuel Ezeh, said he will rebuild Nigerian Cement Industry(NIGERCEM) if elected.

This project according to him will reduce unemployment and boost the economy of Ebonyi and the southeast region in general.

Dr. Ezeh, an Oxford University-trained entrepreneur and businessman, made this known during the Ebonyi state PDP expanded State Executive Council meeting held on Tuesday.

He vowed to resolve issues surrounding the moribund Nigeria Cement Nkalagu (NigerCem) within 100 days in office if elected governor of the state.

He pointed out that Nigeria would not just be revived but would serve as the driver of the industrialization policy of his administration, to provide jobs for the teeming unemployed Ebonyi youths.

Mr. Eze further said his administration would be anchored on the people, adding that he would bring back people elements to governance.

He also pledges to restore the place of Intellectuals in governance, to bring deep and critical thinking to governance issues in the state.

He said that with the diversity of experience he is bringing to the table like his finance background, leadership training from one of the world’s elite institutions, multiple doctorate qualifications, one of which is from Nigeria’s premier institution University of Nigeria(UNN), a business career spanning multiple fields such as Media, ICT, Renewable Energy, etc. He is coming prepared.

In his words, the vision of his government will be anchored on three pillars, recovery, rebuilding, and restoration of Ebonyi state to the original dreams of our founding fathers.

“My government shall bring back the people elements to governance. The thrust of our government shall be anchored on people first.

“Issues around Niger Cement Nkalagu shall be resolved within the 1st 100 days in office. Nigerian Nkalagu shall be the driver of our Industrialization Policy.

“Our administration’s job is to get Nigercem up and in production to provide needed jobs for our people in line with our People First Focus. Our vision as a government is to be anchored on three pillars, recovery, rebuilding, and restoration of Ebonyi state to the original dreams of our founding fathers. This is not about selling our patrimony, never, we shall always think Ebonyi and Ebonyians first while ensuring we play to our comparative advantages.

“We shall bring deep and critical thinking back to governance issues in Ebonyi state and restore the place of Intellectuals in governance.”

He commended the efforts of the past administration in Ebonyi state, stating that the next governor of the state will have his hands loaded. This administration built for the future, but a critical part is missing – The Human Development part. I will bring that aspect into the basket and quickly develop the state to match the dreams and vision of the present administration.

Ebonyi indeed has been blessed with visionary leaders simply because our very first executive governor Distinguished Sen. Dr. Sam Ominyi Egwu built a solid foundation upon which Chief Martin Elechi took off from.

With the present challenges facing Nigeria and Ebonyi state now, Ebonyi requires a man of ideas. It takes a man who can create wealth to manage wealth.

Dr. Ezeh called on PDP to ensure that zoning is maintained in Ebonyi State noting that Ebonyi State was created as answered prayers from oppression and neglect. ‘We are one people’ he echoed. “We must do all to bring down the tension around equity and zoning.”

He called on professionals and technocrats to embrace politics noting the words of Haile Selessie that “evil thrives when people who should speak up keep silent.” It’s noteworthy that Dr. Ezeh is the current president of Ebonyi Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture and also the 2nd deputy president, South East Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (SECCIMA), and National Officer of NACCIMA the leader of the organized private sector (OPS) in Nigeria. He comes highly networked and promises to make Ebonyi an Outlier for Transformational leadership.

On voters education, he enumerated his ambitious project of 5m new voters from the South-East and 1.3m new voters which he said will help Ebonyi state realize the dreams of electing Sen. Dr. Pius Anyim, the in-coming president of Nigeria.

“To the ordinary people of Ebonyi state, my brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers, during my administration, you never be treated as ‘ordinary’. You shall form the thrust and focus of my administration. I am saddened that everywhere you look, you see Ebonyians being treated like dirt. The majority of hawkers in major towns in Nigeria are you, my brothers. I see you and I feel your pains. All I ask of you is to get your PVCs and be ready to vote for us.”
