*President's Visit Excites Mbadinuju, Commends Obi for Investing over N4b in Orient Petroleum
Former Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju has commended Gov. Peter Obi for the successful one-day working visit of Mr. President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan to Anambra State. He made this commendation yesterday through a statement made available to the press.
Mbadinuju said it was a thing of joy that Anambra State had achieved such stability that our people were now happy hearing good news coming out from the State, especially the recent presidential visit to the State. "I believed most Anambra State indigenes are that happy because of many projects, mostly private-sector driven that were commissioned by the President showing that Anambra is on a serious path of economic recovery and is happily expanding her economic base", he said.

Mbadinuju is particularly happy with the exploration of petroleum and gas at the Inland Water Basin of the State that has made her qualify as an oil producing State.
He recalled the pioneering efforts of his Government towards the achievement of this feat. He also gave kudos to all those who supported his government efforts in this respect. He particularly commended Gov. Peter Obi for his dogged commitment to the project which made it succeed particularly given the whopping sum of over 4 billion Naira of Anambra money which he invested to make the whole project a reality.
He says: "One lesson those who govern our people should learn is the value of working for the common good of everyone. When I left office, those that came after me were pre-occupied with trying to dismantling the foundation that I laid. For example, they attempted to re-locate the Anambra State University to their home towns. However, when Governor Obi came to office, rather than follow the path of destruction, he recognized that governance is a continuum and he began to build on the foundations laid by his successors, including myself. For example, he continued developing the university and erecting more structures on the campuses. He also continued supporting Orient Petroleum that is now a success story."
Mbadinuju continue, "Governor Obi is also known to have followed in my security build-up and initiatives in Anambra and our State is good for it despite occasional hiccups. The Governor has also tried to open up, allowing former Governors and Anambra leaders and stakeholders to freely visit the Government House and Governors Lodge as occasion warrants."

He called on all Anambrarians and men of goodwill to support good governance rather than play to the gallery because of interests that are far from altruistic.
commenting on the improved relationship between Awka and Abuja, Mbadinuju said, "To the credit of Gov. Obi is breaking the jinx of a Governor "fighting" with President as against what we now have of our Governor working together as friends with the President. This friendly relationship has brought good gains for the good people of Anambra State."
Finally, the former Governor advised those coming after to try to build on the good foundation left behind, and continue "as in a relay race. Let there be no strife, for are all brothers."
