Anambra Stakeholders Commend Obiano's Giant Strides

The governor of Anambra State Chief Willie Obiano has said that under his leadership, Ndi Anambra would not feel the negative effects of the economic recession being experienced by the country presently.

The governor stated this at his country home, Aguleri in Anambra east council area of the state during an event to mark Christmas Eve with the family.

The ceremony, in celebration of God's grace and mercy on the first family, was also used by the Governor to meet and fraternize with key stakeholders in the state as prelude to Christmas.

The stakeholders who included former Vice-president, Dr Alex Ekwueme, the Deputy Governor, Dr Nkem Okeke and his wife, Oby; former Special Adviser to the President on Inter-Party Affairs, Senator Ben Ndi Obi, Senators Annie Okonkwo and Emma Anosike, the National Chairman of APGA, Ozo Victor Oye, former Minister-Mrs Josephine Anenih among others.

It was indeed a fun-filled evening as guests were thrilled with sonorous Christmas carols by a Choir led by an Associate Professor of Music, Dr Ngozi Okonkwo and performances by comedians like Sacramento and Mc Parrotmouth.

The Governor said Ndi Anambra will not experience the present economic recession because of the relevant steps his government has been taking to keep the state's economy viable.

These, he noted include prompt payment of workers' salaries, leave allowances, sustenance of seasonal largesse, introduction of economic palliatives, the N20 million per community choose-your-project initiative, among others. All these he noted were aimed at pumping money into the system as required for any economy to reverse recession.

The governor who revealed that his government is working to bring the state to a level where it can conveniently meet its statutory responsibilities without depending on the Federal allocation, assured that he would continue to avail Ndi Anambra servant leadership with their support.

In his remarks, the former Presidential Adviser, Senator Ndi Obi who is the National Secretary of the People's Democratic Party(PDP)Caretaker Leadership, acknowledged that Gov Obiano has operated a system of governance that extends handshake to stakeholders across party lines and said his decision to support him is to guarantee the realization of his laudable vision for the state development.

In their respective remarks, a renowned industrialist, Chief Patrick Chidolue and a construction expert, Chief Benneth Emeka said Anambra has every reason to celebrate the yuletide in grand style in view of the visible transformation that it is experiencing, noting that Gov Obiano has proved himself a strong and reasonable leader.

Other persons who spoke at the event including the Chairman of the State Signage Agency, ANSA, Chief Jude Emechetta and Chief Okey Nwankwo described Christmas as a season of love and said the first family is exemplifying good christian attributes of love and magnanimity through the event.
