A socio-political group, Greater Anambra Initiative (GAIN), has lauded the developmental strides of the Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Willie Obiano, which according to the group, have changed the face of the state for good.
The group made the commendation during its inaugural meeting in Abuja on Monday, adding that its support for the governor is mainly hinged on the need to ensure credible leadership and sustainable development reign in Anambra State.
The National Coordinator of the group, Barrister Chike Nwosu, while accessed the performances of the Governor, said: “Obiano has achieved excellence in Security, Agriculture, Tourism and Youth Empowerment, among other sectors of the state’s economy, hence, it’s expedient the Governor is allowed to consolidate on the giant strides he has taken thus far, and also, complete the several ongoing projects in the state.”
Barrister Nwosu added: “Dr. Obiano fearlessly wrestled the Anambra State from the claws of hoodlums, armed robbers, kidnappers and clandestine individuals without any fear of contradiction, misconception, misinterpretation and misrepresentation. Today, Ndi Anambra go about doing their businesses and functions without harassment and unwholesome disturbances. Chief Obiano is absolutely very sincere about it.”
While noting the need for a constructive opposition party in the country, Nwosu said re-election of Obiano in the November 18 poll will set the state on the fast lane of development, which any successive government in the state would not be able to deviate from.
Nwosu, who observed that Ndi Igbo have been marginalised in the present administration, declared that Governor Obiano’s achievement in the state surpassed those of the All Progressive Party (APC) governed states.
