Governor Willie Obiano says, in the nearest future, nothing will be impossible for the state to achieve with the way wealthy Ndi Anambra are heeding to his call on think home philosophy.

Governor Obiano expressed gratitude to the philanthropist for his decision to embark on the project which he noted, practically demonstrated his large heart and love for his people.
According to him, in this era when government’s resources are fast dwindling, the way forward for progressive societies is the partnership between government and the private sector in sustaining efforts at improving the living standards of the people.
The Governor said what he has been able to achieve for the state through his huge investment in fighting insecurity, is a secure and stable environment that encourage development, adding that for his administration, no input made in protecting the lives and property of Ndi Anambra is too much.

In a brief remark, the President General of Agulu, Mr Andy Orakwelu thanked the Governor for his numerous developmental strides in the state and noted that it was due to the Governor’s commitment to developing Anambra State that made people like Mr. Orji commit their resources in assisting government to develop the state.
