Four leading governorship candidates in Enugu State ahead of the 2023 general elections will hold chats with electorate during the 2022 Frontier Discourse Annual Public Lecture Series and Awards.
The event is organised by The Pacesetter Frontier Magazine.
According to the secretary of the Host Organizing Committee, Uchechukwu Lawrencia, the participating governors had acknowledged their invitations.
In her words “The topic for this year’s lecture is ‘The Purpose of Power: Ambition for Common Good and our Culture of Silence and Endurance’. We tagged the guber candidates’ session ‘Enugu Guber Candidates Connect to the Electorate’, to get the governorship candidates to tell electorate what they would offer if elected.
“This is not a governorship debate. We want to help the electorate make choices. The four major parties are the All Progressives Congress, All Progressives Grand Alliance, Labour Party and Peoples Democratic Party.”
