Recession Effects Will Not Touch My People - Gov Obiano

Chief Willie Obiano has reassured Ndi Anambra that no one shall feel the  impact of the present economic recession in the new year. 

The Governor disclosed this in his new year, 2017 message to Ndi Anambra.

He promised that the state economy would remain robust and viable in the new year, saying this would be guaranteed by the strategic steps his administration was taking in injecting a lot of resources into the system.

These, he noted, include the economic palliatives announced last year to give the very low income earners in the state some financial respite, the N20 million per community choose-your-project initiative, and the numerous investments being attracted across the various sectors amongst others.

Gov Obiano assured that as soon as the 2017 budget was approved, Communities in the State would begin to benefit from another round of the N20 million per community choose-your-project development initiative.

He pointed out that his administration had in the year's budget estimate which it presented to the House of Assembly, multiplied the amount it budgeted for Agriculture in the past year by five times in its bid to re-energize the sector to play its expected role in creating an alternative for IGR for both the State Government and the people.

Chief Obiano also said the increase in the Central Bank of Nigeria 's financial support to Micro Small and Medium Enterprises in the State from N1.5 billion to N3 billion will ensure that more agro-based industries will spring up to support the food sufficiency vision of his administration and expressed happiness that Ndi Anambra were beginning to key into the vision of the state to revolutionize Agriculture.

While wishing Ndi Anambra a happy and prosperous new year, Gov Obiano urged them to be proud of who they are and have faith in God and his administration as according to him, he will not relent fulfilling his social contract with the people.
