THE Anambra State administration led by Governor Willie Obiano is developing a 50 -year strategic plan. 50 years development plan is how Anambra State will look like in 50 years time. That is the vision. Then what resources will it take to get there and how?

In order words, the ways and means or process, procedure and of course, the financial equity force. For our dream to be achieved, we have envision that Anambra will become Taiwan or Dubai of Africa. This implies that the living standard of people will be comparable with the living standard of ndi Anambra in developed countries.

People in Northern America, Western Europe, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan enjoy the highest standard of living.

So in 50 years time as we say, the living standard in Anambra State will be comparable with that in the developed countries. It will be as productive as these nations. More so, in terms of ICT, our area will be penetrated (ICT penetrated).

That is, there will be equity of ICT everywhere and it can become Silicon Valley or ICT headquarters in India, as well as Bangalore; a software after Silicon Valley in St. Francis school, California, where a lot of companies have shifted their businesses or turned down their ICT jobs through companies in Bangalore.

So Anambra people can do the same thing in ICT penetration where everybody has access to computers, phones and so on. That is our vision in the next 10, 20 to 50 years.  ( Adinuba is the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Anambra State)

We expect to have a strategic plan, long term plan at least from five years and above, as we are talking about Anambra in the next 50 years.

Anambra can become a city state like Singapore, though we have the smallest land mass in the whole of Nigeria, after Lagos. But today, Lagos has developed to become a city state. Anambra can become a city state with all the infrastructure well developed with huge population. Hong Kong is another example.

They do manufacturing and provide service on a grass shell ICT so you can write your programs, manufacture hardware. It can be achieved through the implementation of strategic plan we are currently developing.

In achieving it also, we need to develop a vision. A vision must have a timeline. That is what you want to do within a given period, a date and year must be stated.
