Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of being responsible for the destruction that rocked the state in 2002 where the PDP allegedly burnt down public utilities in the state.
The governor who spoke on Tuesday at the Dr. Alex Ekwueme Square Awka while addressing All Progressives Grand Alliance faithful ahead of Saturday’s House of Assembly Elections recalled that the PDP plunged Anambra state into confusion and rancour due to its desperation for political power which, according to him, led to the destruction of government establishments in the state.
Obiano however maintained that it was the timely intervention of the APGA government that restored all that were allegedly demolished and destroyed by the Peoples Democratic Party.
He said that the APGA-led state government beginning from ex-governor Peter Obi and his administration transformed Anambra state such that the state slogan was changed from “Home For All” to “Light Of The Nation”.
The governor also disclosed that his regime had paid attention to grassroots development as evidently manifested in the N20m Community Choose Your Project Initiative which he said had institutionalized community-driven projects across the 179 communities in Anambra state.
He therefore urged all APGA faithful and the entire citizenry to support his government by voting massively for all APGA candidates in the forthcoming State House of Assembly Elections to enable him to continue to deliver good governance and democracy dividends to the people of Anambra state.
Obiano was equally emphatic that Saturday’s election was of paramount importance to him because he preferred a legislature dominated by APGA members rather than opposition members as the majority, stressing that such a senario would truncate his development agenda as well as reduce the velocity of his project execution across the state.
He however made a passionate appeal to party members to shun anti-party activities to enable APGA to win all the 30 state assembly seats as such development would help sustain and strengthen the harmonious working relationship between the executive and legislative arm of government in Anambra state.
