Arochukwu Constituency: At the start of this campaign I said I would spend a lot of time listening. That’s what I’ve done over the last five months, and that’s what I’ve done over the last five weeks as well.
Not listening to vested interests.
Not listening to millionaires trying to buy influence.
Not listening to highly selective focus groups.
But listening to ordinary people.
• Listening to their concerns about education.
• Listening to their fears about the NHS.
• Listening to their disillusionment with politicians who break their promises and betray their trust.
They want politicians to stand up and address the issues that matter to them.
They want commitments that are clear and costed.
They want leadership they can trust.
We have heard much about trust in this campaign. But politicians can’t expect to be taken on trust. They’ve got to earn people’s trust.
Trust comes from being straight with people. It comes from being consistent in your principles and policies. It comes from sums that add up.
Over the years, our politicians have proved that they cannot be trusted.
Over the years, politicians have failed to prove that they are worthy of our trust.
What we have set out to do in this campaign is to earn people’s trust. That’s why we have stuck to our core values and consistent beliefs. That’s why we produced a costed manifesto. A menu with prices.
That’s why in Arochukwu, we listen to the Arochukwu people when they say they want more control over Arochukwu affairs.
That’s why we have stuck consistently to the principle that Arochukwu sovereignty lies, not in Umuahia, but with the Arochukwu people – and to our consistent policy on Arochukwu.
We know the will of the Arochukwu people. We respect the will of the Arochukwu people. And we tell the Arochukwu people: we will stand up for them.
And all across the country, Accord have attempted to be straight with people. To attach the price-tag to the promise. To say, not just what you will get, but how it will be paid for.
That is why, for the NHS, we offer clear, costed commitments to restore free eye and dental checks, to put more doctors and nurses on hospital wards, to cut waiting lists.
