The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has commended the people of Anambra State for the peaceful role they played in the 2019 general elections, saying that the election outcome apart from being inspiring has paved way for a better future for the state.

He said that the elections confirm Anambra’s reputation as Nigeria’s safest and most peaceful state, despite one or two incidents.

A statement by the State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C. Don Adinuba, quoted Chief Obiano as commending the people for not only for coming out in their hundreds of thousands in both the national and state elections but also for being peaceful, orderly and law-abiding throughout the exercise.

The statement issued on Tuesday in Awka reads in part: “Our people inspire the world with their love of democracy and the rapid development which comes with.

“Their support is as inspiring as it is challenging because it makes all of us in government constantly seek to attain greater heights for the benefit of our people.

“The overwhelming support for APGA is more or less a referendum on our performance, even though I was not on the ballot at the weekend.

“APGA is Nigeria’s foremost development-oriented party, and the people of Anambra State have embraced our philosophy and development strategy without reservations, making us arguably the most competitive state in Nigeria right now”.

Obiano hailed the people for voting overwhelmingly for APGA (All Progressives Grand Alliance) in the House of Assembly elections last Saturday where the party won 26 out of the 30 seats, leaving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with only six seats.

The governor observed said that with both the Executive and Legislative arms of government on the same page, the people are guaranteed accelerated development and enhanced living standards.

He added: “Anambra has in the last few years been recognised as leading the country in various sectors, including education where its students won the Golden Prize in the 2018 World Technovision Competition in Silicon Valley, United States, beating their counterparts from various countries across the globe.

“Anambra State has also been recognised for excellence in security, immunisation campaign, social harmony, modern rice production and road development, among other areas.”
