“I believe that everything we’ve stated here in terms of our vision is feasible.” People have got together in countries, sub-nationals, and cities and resolved that they would change the narrative, the pattern of growth, and they dedicated themselves to it, and it happened.

Lloyd Ekweremadu; the Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Dame Ugochi Madueke; the Commissioner for Finance, Dr. Nathaniel Uramah; the Commissioner for Children, Gender Affairs, and Social Welfare, Mrs. Ngozi Enih; the Executive Chairman of the Enugu State Tourism Board, Rita Mbah; and the Chairman of the En
