Next Governor of Anambra State: Obi Assures Anambra North of Support

 [ Masterweb Reports ] - Gov. Obi has once again assured Anambra North Senatorial Zone of his Support for them to produce the next Governor. He said this yesterday during his tour of the Senatorial Zone yesterday. He said his commitment to support them was because of the promise he made to them while he was contesting. "beyond the promise, it is fair and equitable that you produce the next Governor going by the fact that since Anambra State was created, over 20 years ago, the zone is yet to produce the Governor as if they are not part of the State," Obi submitted.


Speaking further, he charged them to bring out their best for the Job, those. According to him, have enviable pedigree and requisite character to deliver quality service to the people of the State.


The visit which took the Governor to all the 7 Local Government areas of the Zone- Oyi, Anambra East and West, Ayamelum, Onitsha North and South and Ogbaru- according to him, was a routine visit designed to allow him interact directly with the people of the State."I always feel fulfilled each time I am with you and talk directly to you and get feed back from you. This is one of the ways through which I am opportune to let you know that in spite of the office, that I am still one of you, care for you, and want the best for you," Obi said.


Obi who flagged off four roads in the State on Saturday took the opportunity of the visit to re-assure the people that he would double his efforts at execution of projects contrary to the widely held views that a Governor preparing to leave office does less job. He said he had the financial war chest to execute all the projects lined up by his Government, some of which are roads, Onitsha Hotel and Convention Centre as well as similar facility at Awka and Nnewi, shopping malls for Onitsha, Awka and Nnewi , Anambra's Three Arms zone comprising Government House, State Assembly Complex and High Court, among many other projects.


The Governor tasked the people to take possession of any project sited at their places and monitor their execution closely.


At Anambra West, the Transition Committee Chairman, Mr. Augustine Chukwurah commended the Governor for being the father of the State in fact and in words. He said that the way he handled the flood crisis which affected all the Local Government in Anambra North ensued that casualties were reduced to barest minimum even as he took care of the displaced probably as no other Governor did in the flood affected communities in Nigeria.
