Former governorship aspirant, Comrade Peter Nwosu, says he will consolidate on the achievements of Governor Willie Obiano if he becomes the next governor of Anambra state in 2021. He also said the state needed a youth to take over from the incumbent governor.
Nwosu said Governor Obiano had done well in concrete terms contrary to the opposing views of his antagonists. He pointed out that his administration would turn the fortunes of Anambra state around, and that he would introduce youthful energy and resourcefulness into the governance of the state
The Nnewi-North born business mogul and Senior Special Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on Petroleum Matters said his chances of occupying the seat of power in Anambra was not in contention because he had done a lot to secure the mandate of the people to get to the government house in 2021.
Noting that Governor Obiano has surpassed the records of his predecessors in terms of infrastructural development, Nwosu said his advent as governor would further transform the health, education, agriculture as well as other sectors of the state economy.
Nwosu who spoke with our correspondent in his office at the government house Awka yesterday, stressed the need for youthful blood to be injected into the administration and governance of Anambra state, noting that it was time a youth became governor in Anambra state.
According to him, “The politics of Nigeria started from Anambra state. Once Anambra state gets it right, Nigeria will get it right. I believe this time, Anambra state will produce a youth as governor.
“If you look around, you will observe that we are still in the old testament. The people who governed this country when they were youths are still in power. So we need a new testament. It’s time the youths took over the governance of Anambra state.
“I want to address perennials like unemployment, infrastructure, education, health and others. There is need to make such amenities available for the people to improve on their living conditions.”
He also said that the level of government presence in Nnewi-North was unprecedented as the state government was currently handling an erosion control project through World Bank intervention together with other projects.
