Governor Willie Obiano accompanied by the Commissioner for Housing, Arc. Michael M. Okonkwo inspected the progress of work on the ultra modern Anambra 10,000 capacity International Conference Centre located in Agu Awka, the state capital.

The contractor, ZTC briefed the Governor on the level of work done so far. He said; "building structure is ready to be roofed. But the shipment of the steel structural sections from China are delayed because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The first set of shipment of the steel structural sections, however, are in the shores of Nigeria and will soon reach the site so that the roof installations will commence in earnest".

" Finishing processes are currently going on viz; screeding of internal partition walls, pulling of wires, installation of central air conditioning rough-ins, preparations for escalator positions and others".

Continuing, he said; "perimeter fencing is ongoing with desirable speed; latrite filings for proper leveling of the site is massively going on, while the setting out for the internal site drainage network construction has commenced".

After the inspection, Governor Obiano commended the contractor, ZTC, for progress made so far but urged increase in the pace of work. Moreover, he applauded the contractor's employment of day-and-night work schedule to make up the delay caused by the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The contractor assured him of his resolve to close the gap caused by the resultant effect of the Coronavirus pandemic and deliver the project very close to the desired delivery date.

Obiano’s Six Years of Purposeful Leadership


As Governor Willie Obiano marks his six years in office today, one thing that comes to mind is the saying that ‘morning shows the day.’ Obiano’s First Hundred Days in Office clearly showed him as a surefooted leader who had diagnosed the leadership illness of his people and had came to work armed with the right prescription for the ailment.

Unlike what we see these days, Obiano did not waste time in settling down to business. He knew too well, the inherent capacity of Ndi Anambra to transform their environment. However, unlike his predecessors, he was quick to figure out that Ndi Anambra would not take ownership of their state if it was left broken and unsafe. He knew that the silent pain had always been the unfettered audacity of criminals across the state…and that until the audacity was hacked away, no meaningful development would take place in the state. It was clear as daylight to him that a society which went to sleep at 4pm for fear of the underworld was a society in chains and one in which real progress would hesitate to take roots. So, he wasted no time to tighten the noose on security and that has served as a precursor to Anambra’s hopeful narrative of change in the past six years.

To be sure, anyone who is familiar with South East Nigeria would know that the Igbo are passionately attached to their homeland. The Igbo wanderlust and intense attachment to the homeland is captured in the saying that “obialu ije nwe una” and “eje ana bu isi ije.” But nowhere is this emotional attachment as strong as in Anambra State. That is why Anambra usually turns into a big carnival at Christmas. Ndi Anambra will always find their way home for Christmas. Sadly, many people could not do that for years because Anambra was unsafe. Only people who could afford a large battalion of battle-ready policemen visited home to sprite their aging parents away to safer places. But Obiano has changed that and restored the legendary Anambra pride.

Indeed, Governor Obiano did more than restore the people’s pride. He actually re-imagined the New Anambra and worked hard to bring his dream to pass. Anyone who is aware that Obiano’s stated mission in government is “to create a socially stable, business friendly environment that will attract both indigenes and foreigners to wealth creating opportunities” will not dispute that the governor has excelled in his mission. Anambra is socially stable and business-friendly today. In the past six years, Anambra has attracted a large number of indigenous entrepreneurs and some foreigners to the local business space. In much the same way, Obiano has continued to expand the frontiers of wealth creation in Anambra State right from his first week in office. The Anambra Small Business Agency (ASBA) has produced a large number of enthusiastic entrepreneurs and won the governor a Presidential Award for the support of SMEs. The ease of doing business has been boosted in a considerable way by the creation of Anambra State Investment Promotion and Protection Agency (ANSIPPA). Similarly, the recent hosting of the Nigeria Police Games was a big Christmas gift to small businesses in the state. So many restaurants, bars, hotels, supermarkets in Awka have confirmed that their businesses experienced a high patronage during the games. That is the business of government; to create a fertile ground for dreams to bloom.

Governor Obiano has also left a big imprint on Awka the state capital. Awka has evolved a 24-hour lifestyle and a booming night economy. Indeed, Obiano has successfully recreated the social environment of Anambra State and unleashed a social harmony that was once a wishful thought among the people. A visit to Anambra State on any given weekend is enough to get a fair idea of the emerging social circuit.

And who can deny that in six years, governor Obiano has made Anambra State a reference point in Agriculture? Who can deny the immense economic value of Coscharis Rice Farms and Mills or the popular Anambra Rice or the massive impact of JOSAN Rice Farms and Mills? Which worker in Anambra State is not happy with the fact that Anambra is the first state to pay the new Minimum Wage? Which black African is not proud of the five school girls from Regina Pacis Secondary School Onitsha that defeated China, US, Spain, Turkey and Uzbekistan to win the Gold Medal in Technovation at the Silicon Valley? And who can dispute that all these great achievements were recorded under Governor Willie Obiano.

And as the once colourless Sir Alex EKwueme Square transforms into a showpiece sporting complex, as the magnificent International Conference Centre begins to impose itself on the Awka landscape and finally; as the Anambra International Cargo Airport begins to emerge from its foundations at Umueri, it is increasingly becoming impossible to deny that Governor Willie Obiano has changed Anambra State in six years.

Congratulations on your 6th year in office!

I would never understand why politicians are exalted for carrying out duties which they were elected to carry out anyway, as if it's some sort of unmerited favour or privilege to the masses.

Okay.
how is this or would this impact directly on the masses that voted this man into office?
how would this touch the life of that agrarian dweller.
order than spend the money on buying tractors and other modern farming equipment for farmers to generate more revenue to play around with, this is all this nuisance we keep vote can think of.
fund that can turn around the fortune of the entire state is being tied down to remain redundant for eternity.
