The South East Revival Group (SERG) has expressed satisfaction with the giant strides so far recorded by Governor Willie Obiano administration in Anambra state, saying it would not be surprised if the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) led government makes a mini-Dubai out of the state in four years.
The Pan-Igbo group in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Chief Willy Ezugwu, on Wednesday, said the activities of the state governor have been followed by the group in the last two years “and indeed Willie Obiano is working”.
“When you visit Anambra State, in just two years of the Chief Willie Obiano administration, you will be greeted by several commissioned and on-going gigantic projects, ranging from the Anambra State House of Assembly Complex to roads into the hinterlands, flyover bridges and many more.
“Don’t forget that most governors are crying of dwindling monthly allocation from the Federation Account and as a result went to Abuja for bailout funds, yet you can see the neatness of Upper Iweka; the serene environment for profitable business activities.
“For the first time in the history of Nigeria, the state governor was able to attract over $2 billion foreign investment into his state.
“Today, there is relative security in Anambra with night life restored, such that you can now go about with your handbag without fear of it being snatched in Onitsha because of Chief Willie Obiano’s zero tolerance for criminals’, the group observed.
The statement noted that Chief Obiano’s achievements in the area of security of lives and property “followed painstaking efforts to support security agencies in the state, having donated equipment to them, including vehicles, gunboats, speedboats, and water ambulances to facilitate movements across the water channels and ensure better life in riverine communities and link them with their kit and kin in the mainland.
“So, the efforts of the APGA government in Anambra towards building a Millionaire City must be applauded by all well-meaning Anambrarians.
“We, therefore, enjoin all Anambra indigenes, at home and abroad, to support this God-sent Governor, who has been able to turn around the fortunes of the state in less than two years in office, which recently earned Chief Willie Obiano the The Sun newspaper’s prestigious Governor of the Year award”, the stated.
