The Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, on Friday said that the good relationship between his government and the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government contributed immensely to the social harmony in the state.
Obiano attributed the level of cooperation among federal and state agencies in the state to his strategy to make Anambra State “the first choice investment destination in Nigeria.”
He maintained that investments go first and foremost to peaceful and stable places, adding that the harmony between the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and that of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) government in the State has made it one of the most competitive states in the country
The governor stated this in a press statement made available to journalists in Awka by his Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C Don Adinuba.
While insisting that he has no regrets relating well with President Buhari, Obiano said: “Not only do we have excellent relations with all state governments in Nigeria as well, we also enjoy warm relations with all political parties and their members, including candidates in the 2019 general elections.
“We don’t discriminate in the state, as can be testified by the presence in our administration of members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and APC and a number of non-Anambra indigenes.
“We are proud that Anambra is today the most peaceful, the most cohesive and the most inclusive state throughout the country.
“Frankly, I think other parts of the country should come to Anambra State and see not only how key federal agencies work together but also how national and sub national organisations cooperate fully with one another for the benefit of the people.”
The Governor further hailed the intelligence and security agencies in the state for providing impressive security in the state, especially during the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
He said that the unprecedented investment flow of over $4billion in just four years in Anambra State is not fortuitous or a mere coincidence but a part of a well-planned, deliberate strategy which took into consideration environmental factors affecting investment decisions everywhere in the world.
