Enugu — Enugu State Government has said the Federal Government-initiated Good Governance Tour of the 36 states of the federation should be sustained periodically to ensure that governors accounted to the people.
Acting governor of the state, Mr. Sunday Onyebuchi, stated this, yesterday, while receiving the Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, and his 105-man entourage that paid him a courtesy visit before inspecting both federal and state governments' projects in Enugu State.
"So I believe the good governance tour programme is a good one which I think should be sustained periodically, which in its own way, will make the governors of the states know that there is a forum where they need to give account to the people.
"We believe by the time we listen to you, we will be able to learn how we are doing well and how we are not doing well and how we can improve on how we are doing things," Onyebuchi said.
He said Enugu State accepted to host the good governance tour team because "we believe that it is not just enough for the people of Enugu State who see what we do, who enjoy the services we provide; it is also important that people outside the state know that Enugu State is the place to come and invest.
"It will also afford us the opportunity of having our people tell us how they feel about what we are doing, and then give us the opportunity to improve on the way we do things."
