Anambra Head of Service, Labour Leaders, Others Score State High @26


Ndi Anambra have continued to bare their minds on Anambra State development indices, twenty six years after its creation.

In his opinion, the State Head of Service, Barrister Harry Udu, described as a success story, the journey of Anambra State since its creation in 1991.

Barrister Udu who said the public service has continued to play acomplementary role alongside successive administrations, appreciated the industrial harmony in the State and urged workers to sustain their dedication and loyalty to the governance.

Barrister Udu acknowledged the good governance enthroned by the Obiano administration, expressing delight that people come to Anambra State to learn the rudiments of government.

Reflecting on the twenty-sixth anniversary of Anambra State, the state Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Comrade Jerry Nnubia, affirmed that the State attained greater heights in the areas of education, health and infrastructural development.

The Labour leader also admitted that under Governor Willie Obiano, worker’s welfare received a boost, as evident in the prompt payment of salaries, and others largesse to the workers.

Comrade Nnubia, however, asked for an upward review of workers’ salaries to enable them cope with the present economic challenges.

For a former NLC State Chairman, Comrade Godwin Ibekwe, the growth of the State has been progressive since its creation.

Also assessing the State’s journey in the past twenty-six years, the Deputy Chairman, Awka South Local government Transition Committee, Chief Obiora Okafor, traced the committed development of Anambra from 2003 to the present regime of Governor Willie Obiano, who, he said, has taken the State to greater heights.

Chief Obiora urged the citizenry to vote massively for Governor Obiano in the forth coming governorship election.

Speaking in a similar tune, the Chairman, State Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board, Professor Steve Ibenta, said Anambra has done well in its overall performance, twenty six years after its creation.

Professor Ibenta, who spoke on the twenty-sixth anniversary of the State, said in the Nigeria context, characterized by slow development, growth and economic challenges, Anambra, in the last few years, has maintained a track record of good governance, security of lives and property, Agricultural revolution, among other visible indices of development.

He said the State under Governor Willie Obiano, in spite of the harsh economic condition of the country, can boast of the best road network in Nigeria and other achievements, which, if sustained, will propel the State, in a few years to come, to the height of the Asian tigers.

The Board Chairman urged people of the State to sustain the momentum of development by voting for Governor Obiano in the November eighteenth governorship election and to shun acts that will return the State to the dark days of vandalization, kidnapping, anarchy, and free for all political adventure.

Sharing his views, a former Chancellor of the Awka Catholic Diocese, Very Reverend Monsignor Professor John-Paul Nzomiwu, said the State, since creation, has recorded appreciable progress in the last twenty-six years as seen in the increase in the number of educational institutions, handover of schools to the Mission and establishment of the best road network in Nigeria.
Monsignor Nzomiwu said what the State needs is Federal Government’s commitment towards reconstructing federal roads in the State.

Also, Prince Chike Okafor Agilo said he will support Governor Obiano’s second term bid as he has done well in the areas of Education, Agriculture and Entrepreneurship.

On his part, a former Deputy Chairman for Awka South Local Government area, Barrister Chike Oranye, said the State has made appreciable progress since creation but asked that efforts be made to ensure that all parts of the State get equal attention in terms of development.
