*Anambra Set To Become Cleanest State In Nigeria
All things being equal, Anambra state is set to become the cleanest State in Nigeria. This was disclosed by Governor Peter Obi yesterday during the commissioning of different types (according to function) Refuse Disposal Vehicles, compactors receptacles, ANIDS School buses, at totaling over 500 million naira at the premises of Innoson Motor manufacturing company, Nnewi yesterday.
Obi commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his interest in private enterprises as shown by his accepting to commission the motor plant, when he paid a State visit to Anambra State in 2010. He called other Nigerian investors to emulate Dr. Innocent Chukwuma, who is behind the plant. He appealed to wealthy Anambra citizens to invest their money in such project rather than use it to cause confusion in the state. Obi said that he deliberately decided to perform the commissioning at the premises of Innoson to showcase to the nation and other countries of the world, especially in the West African Sub-Region, that such things were now manufactured in Anambra State, Nigeria. “come and buy your wide range of needs at Innoson, rather than travel abroad for the same purpose”, Obi said.

Obi, who disclosed that the State would buy more of such vehicles said that ANIDS School buses were meant for some schools that did not benefit from the over 150 buses given to schools earlier. For the refuse disposal trucks, he said that the commissioning represented the change on tactics for the disposal of refuse in the State. Gov. Obi said that part of the tactics was the formation of a new Anambra State Waste Management Agency (ASWMA) and the appointment of an environmental chemist, Dr. Anthony Okoye to head the Agency. “As long as refuse are not seen on Anambra Streets, his work is secured, otherwise the contrary will be the case. Now is not the time for platitudes, but for action and more action”, Obi thundered. Obi also said that the Agency was a bit delayed in taking off because he wanted to provide them with the tools to work with as represented by the event of today. Speaking during the commissioning, Dr. Innocent Chukwuma said that he had received tremendous goodwill from Governor Obi and that he did not regret investing in Anambra State. He called on other investors to come and invest in the State and enjoy the support of a Governor who understood investment in its totality.
Speaking earlier, the State Commissioner for Environment, Dr. Mike Egbebike, who recalled the sacrifices the Governor make for the good of the state, said that the Governor was committed to environmental cleanliness, not just to health, but to create the environment that would allow business to blossom.
On her own part the State Commissioner for Education, Dr. Kay Onyechi said that due to revolutionary approach of Governor Obi to education that the sector had changed completely to what it used to be. According to her, Anambra school system now boost of school buses, well equipped science laboratory, computers and other modern learning aids. She said that what was amazing in all these was that he channeled some of the things donated to him for private use into schools.
