Your Excellency, I am very happy for the good work you are doing in Anambra State. I appreciate your efforts to invest in what we know that works. May the Good Lord guide, protect and give you knowledge and wisdom with which to impact positively on the lives of our people which will ultimately put smiles on their faces for delivering on your campaign promise.

I am writing this mail to you on behalf of Ogwuaniocha people in Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State, who have suffered decades of neglect in many ways by previous and the current administration. Ogwu-Aniocha, my town, has remained one of the food baskets of Anambra State. For instance, Umu-Nekpu, Umu-Ngasi, Umu-Ezeoma, Umu-Eleke and Oblo communities do convey on daily basis an average of 100 tonnes of food items through Ihiala and other parts of the state, instead of Atani, the headquarters of Ogbaru, because of the impassable nature of Atani road, among other roads that need your urgent attention and action.

I urge you to come over to Ogwuaniocha to see for yourself the near squalor those who voted for you in the last governorship election, with the hope that you will extend the dividend of democracy to them are facing and help us with some of these things my people need. What we need now and quickly, too, are: good road from Atani to Ogwu-Aniocha, functional cottage hospital with state-of-the-art facilities and seasoned medical doctors to man it, electricity, and pipe-born water supply to the five communities, making up the town. These are what any responsible government that has the security and welfare of its people at heart should do.

I must commend you notwithstanding contrary views for your efforts in the area of health, education, infrastructural development, etc, which is mainly concentrated in the urban area and your initiative among other people who contributed in making Anambra an oil bearing state not minding the current dispute about the rightful owners of the oil well. As we continue to count on you as a good leader to provide the above amenities for us, we pray God will help you to remember rural dwellers who have been expecting you to provide basic social facilities for them.
