The government of the United States of America has commended the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano for putting in place a security arrangement that guarantees the safety of the residents and visitors to the state.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to the Governor’s Lodge in Amawbia on Thursday, the US Consul General, Mr. John Bray praised Governor Obiano for providing a very secure environment and an impressive network of roads.

According to him, “First of all, this is my first visit to the South East. I heard about the South East a lot. We met with some of the security officials in the morning and we met with the governor. I am very, very impressed with the quality of roads in the state. Believe it or not, they are not like this everywhere in Nigeria. I am also impressed with the improvement in the security environment which has come into place with the current government.”

Consul General Bray further recalled that he first heard about Anambra a couple of years ago when some American citizens had a variety of problems in the state and expressed confidence that with the arrangements Governor Obiano has put in place such challenges would be a thing of the past.

Describing his visit as a fact-finding trip, Mr. Bray further revealed that his visit would bring him face to face with members of the civil society and some opposition figures in the state.

Also speaking, the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano explained that his discussion with the American team covered various developmental areas including education and scholarship.

He further revealed that another meeting had been scheduled in the near future where both parties would look at the finer details of the proposed collaboration that would accelerate the development of Anambra State.

It would be recalled that just last weekend, Governor Obiano was decorated as The Governor of the Year 2015 by the publishers of The Sun Newspapers in a colourful ceremony in Lagos, confirming his position as Nigeria’s best performing governor in the outgone year.

The organisers of the award praised him for his crime-bursting efforts and for catapulting Anambra into a frontline state in less than two years.
