“I feel very proud that one of our own, the true son of Aniocha North, has been elevated to such an enviable office. There is no place Aniocha North indigene has got to without making a great impact or success. Dr. Kachikwu is a further confirmation of endowment resources in the area,” he said.

He noted that the council area has produced great resource persons who have served Nigeria greatly in all spheres of human endeavours, saying Kachikwu was one of such who has contributed immensely to national development.
