THE gubernatorial candidate of the Independent Democrats (ID) in forthcoming general elections in Ebonyi state, Mrs. Grace Uduma-Eze, has promised to create an enabling environment for local and foreign investors to thrive in the state.

Uduma-Eze added that she would re-position the state in term of infrastructural development so that the state would compete with other states in the zone.

Uduma-Eze,who stated this yesterday during media chat with journalists in Abakaliki on why she joined the gubernatorial race, further decried poor funding of education sector in the state, noting that she would reduce the school fees in the state’s university from over N120, 000, as being paid, to N20, 000.

She added that she was vying for the position of governorship in the state not to challenge anybody, but because of the pitiable condition of the people.

Uduma-Eze said: “I am not coming out to challenge anybody. I came out because of what I saw: the people are weeping. A lot of things have happened, which also affected me. The education sector was not what it used to be. Our school fees have been increased to over N120, 000, but our children are now out of school. I will reduce it to N20, 000.

“Time is apt for women to be given an opportunity to serve the state because there has not being any meaningful development in the state for the past 7 and half years”.

“The failure of Elechi’s administration was that the governor did not assemble intellectuals to guide him in decision making and implementation of government polices and programmes. I will recognise intellectuals in my administration. Our roads will be superb. None of the projects initiated by the present administration has been completed. We don’t need their promise again. I am coming to bring real transformation in the state. Off course, you know that whatever a man can do, a woman can even do better”
