Ahiwe would “publish quarterly and annual reports on government income and expenditure”, run open procurement based on a technology platform, deploy tech to cut waste in government and implement eGovernment for easy public access to government affairs.
He said he would set monthly performance targets for commissioners and other appointees and involve town unions in project identification, planning and execution.

His plans include “constituting the Abia Club 100 of leading businesses to co-invest on pivotal projects”.
Electricity is one of three enablers in the Ahiwe Manifesto. He stated, “Working with our development partners, we will enable private investment to deliver reliable, affordable, universal electricity access.”

The plans include delivering “fast power” projects to economic centres, schools and hospitals, support for private investment in renewable energy for underserved communities and supporting Geometric Power Limited to supply 24/7 power in the nine local governments it covers.
