From Jude Chinedu, Enugu

The newly-elected executive of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Enugu State chapter, has pledged to synergise with the state government and other stakeholders to entrench good governance in the state.

The state chairman, Obioma Nnamani, who also doubles as chairman of BOOT Party in Enugu State, said this during the hand-over ceremony by the past executive led by Edwin Alor

He said that IPAC as an advisory would live up to our function by ensuring a high level of transparency and accountability in all its dealings.

“At the same time, we are going to ensure that the political parties have a good working relationship with INEC, ENSIEC and as well have synergy with the state government in the overall interest of the good people of Enugu State.

“The advice that I have for IPAC members is for all of us to join hands together as one family to pilot the affairs of the council to greater heights. We recognise that we have our collective strengths when we come together. We have to leverage that in order to move IPAC forward,’’ he said.

On his part, the Special Adviser to Governor Peter Mbah on Political Matters, Frank Anioma, advised the body to maintain its position as a watchdog to hold the government accountable at all times.

He said: “My advice, like I said when I was talking to them, is for them to continue from where the immediate exco left. They should be making their voice heard in Enugu State. They should always collaborate with the incumbent government of Enugu State.

“They should have the slogan of the body which is good governance at the back of their minds as they do anything. So that they will continue to maintain and call the government to account for its actions.”

In his handover speech, the immediate past chairman, Edwin Alor, appreciated all members of his executive and the house for their patience, understanding and support that helped them succeed.

He further urged them to forgive all his errors and looked forward to a greater and a more formidable IPAC in Enugu State.
