The Host Organizing Committee for the 2022 Frontier Discourse Annual Public Lecture Series and Awards of The Pacesetter Frontier Magazine has announced plans to host a conversation for governorship candidates as a part of the public lecture.

The announcement was contained in a brief statement by the secretary of the Host Organizing Committee, Uchechukwu Lawrencia.

Stressing that it wasn't a debate, Lawrencia said the governorship candidates to participate in the discussion are those of Enugu State, drawn from four of the major political parties in the country. She noted that they all have been contacted and are hoped to be in attendance.

In her words "Throughout the country, we are in a season of elections and conversations geared towards electing credible leaders.

"As you will recall, the topic for this year's lecture is 'The Purpose of Power: Ambition for Common Good and our Culture of Silence and Endurance', and what we hope to achieve through this discussion which we have tagged 'Enugu Guber Candidates Connect to the Electorates', understanding that the Media is ideally empowered to facilitate such discussions, is to get the governorship candidates tell the people the purpose for which they are seeking for power through elections.

"This is not a governorship debate. We want to help the people of Enugu state, our host state, decipher who among the candidates possess the ambition to be governor for the common good of the people.

"The four major parties that we plan to host are the All Progressives Congress, All Progressives Grand Alliance, Labour Party and Peoples Democratic Party.

"We have communicated the planned discussion to their respective governorship candidates and with the exception of one gubernatorial candidate, we can say that so far, the outcomes of the discussions are positive. We are therefore looking forward to a fruitful governorship candidates discussion", she said.
