Poised to enrich the discourse on good governance in the country, a new book, “Portrait of Performance” (“Understanding Vision Behind Obiano’s Achievements”) is set to be formally presented to the Nigerian media.

Slated for Tuesday October 3, 2017, the event, an initiative of the Independent Media Support Organisation, IMSO, kicks off at 11am at Cosmilla Hotel, Awka, Anambra State. The book, written by a seasoned journalist, Ngozi Emedolibe, a member of IMSO, takes a cursory look at the state of governance in the South Eastern region, with a particular emphasis on Anambra State, where Chief Willie Obiano has been at the helm of affairs in the past three years.

Divided into fifteen chapters, the 280-page book, is a reflection of what has been going on in the state of Anambra in various sectors in the past couple of years with an emphasis on the reality that governance should be hinged on enablers which stimulate economic growth for the general wellbeing of the citizenry, while proffering a dependable module to be adopted in the SE zone for the rapid development of the region.

The book whose foreword was written by Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, a former Governor of Anambra State, according to the author, Ngozi Emedolibe, serves not only as a documentation of facts but also a call to duty for all citizens on the need to interrogate the ambitions of intending leaders based on their actions and inactions while in other ventures other than politics.

According to the author, this will help to gauge what the performance of the candidate will be in office. “My book is a little way of sensitising the people on the need to probe people’s ambition, recognise talents and support them when there is need. I have done this, first and foremost, as a journalist charged with the responsibility of keeping records straight and secondly as a citizen desirous of a better society.”

According to the Executive Director of the Independent Media Support Organisation, Ogbuefi Harris Chuma: “At IMSO, we are committed to bringing to the fore all the feats that have been recorded in Anambra in the past 3 years under Governor Obiano, which the book has succinctly captured.”

Emedolibe, with over 15 years experience is an editor, whose body of works has enriched the arts, culture and investigative journalism sectors of the Nigerian media.
