During an interactive session with Mazi Excel Nwaneri-Ochiama, the Fresh Democratic Party (FDP) gubernatorial flag bearer, he disclosed about governance in Imo state and why we should vote for him as the next Governor of Imo state.
Speaking to Newsmen in Owerri, Mazi Excel revealed that the beauty of Democracy, is respect for rule of Law.
For the past Eight (8) years, Imo has witnessed an autocratic system of Government, what should we expect from your administration if elected?
“You see the beauty of Democracy, is respect for rule of Law. The only difference between the military administration and the democratic system of Government is respect for rule of Law and due process. In the military system of Government, you can’t go to the court. There are things you can’t think of doing. Because you will be messed up, you will be killed the next minute. But the beauty, if we say we are practicing democracy then we are making a big mistake by drifting back to the military system of Government
I can assure Ndi- Imo that due process will be our watch word, that rule of Law will be respected 100% and will be statedly adhered to. I have said it in different forms that my administration is the only administration that would have the clergy among it.
Now when I mean the clergy, I mean every denomination will be represented for example the Catholic Church, the Anglican Church, the Pentecostal fellowship of Nigeria, the Disabled will all be represented in the Executive cabinet, the head of market would be in the cabinet, the teachers will be represented, so if any issue comes up In an executive meeting we can boldly have a say in every decision being made by my government.
I think this is this the best way. The reason for which we have an adviser is to listen to advises that come from them. Whats the need of hiring someone and giving them portfolio of special adviser or whatever if you cannot take their opinions, their opinions don’t matter.
So I think in my administration we are going to be putting the best foot forward and having respect for rule of Law and insuring that we will take Imo to the next level. It’s going to be an all encompassive Government and holistic system of Government. Where everyone will be carried along and where everyone will have a say in the Government. Thank you”.
