Enugu: APGA Guber Candidate, Nweke To Revive, Upgrade Emergency Response System In Enugu

The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) gubernatorial candidate in Enugu State, Mr. Frank Nweke Jr, has highlighted his plans for the emergency response system in the State, assuring residents of his commitment to their safety and well-being if elected governor in 2023

Nweke disclosed this recently when members of the Public Affairs Analysts paid a visit to his office for a parley to discuss his plans for Enugu State.

Noting that the rehabilitation of roads will be a priority for his administration, he acknowledged the possibilities of accidents and the need to provide a functional response system that gives people a chance of survival.

“We must upgrade our First Response System which includes communications, security operatives, road safety officials, firefighters, medical teams all working seamlessly and properly connected to hospitals for emergency response.

“This essential public service is simply a dividend citizens should enjoy for the taxes they pay.

“As a government, my administration will also work closely with non-governmental organisations and private entities to strengthen the value chain as well,” Nweke said.

He also stated that he had a media team whose training and first responsibility was the professional reportage on emergencies, keeping the public aware of incidents and best practices, and keeping the emergency services and government accountable to the people.

Nweke said the popular Ugwu Onyeama Enugu expressway and all other dilapidated roads must be salvaged and repaired to reduce the occurrence of accidents.

He said, “My plan to stop the incineration of waste on that expressway will also improve visibility for drivers and reduce the rates of accidents.

“But when they do happen, we must do all that is humanly possible to give every person a chance of survival,” he assured.
