Plaudits for Obiano’s new awards



GOVERNOR Willie Obiano of Anambra State has continued to receive widespread commendation for winning the 2019 Governor of the Year Award by the UK-based Afri-Serves International (Media and Development) Center together with the Best Governor on Security Award by the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, recently.

The President-General of Nkwelle-Ezunaka Union (NEU), in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State, Peter Nweke, applauded Governor Obiano for the well deserved awards which eloquently attested to his exemplary, innovative, transparent and resourceful stewardship since taking over the mantle of leadership in the state.

                Sir  Nweke confirmed that the town had benefitted immensely from the present administration through the ‘Community Choose Your Project’ scheme which the first phase was used to upgrade their Civic Centre while the second phase was meant to reconstruct the two markets in the town (Afor and Nkwo Markets) with lock-up stalls to boost economic activities in the community.

He disclosed that the third phase of the scheme would be invested in health and education sectors as directed by the coordinating agency, adding that he people would forever remember the governor as a leader with passionate interest in improving their living standards and whose reign portended the greatest socio-economic emancipation of the state.

The PG also thanked Governor Obiano for including the town in his ‘Light Up Anambra’ electrification programme with the installation of street lights along the major thoroughfares in the community which was completed within two months in the last quarter of 2018.

He disclosed that the NEU executive would compile a computer data-base of all non-indigenes resident in the town for proper identification and for security purposes because of rapid urbanization and influx of sojourners in the community with attendant security challenges in the process.

According to him, all landlords accommodating non-indigenes would be required to fill the appropriate demographic forms giving details of tenants in their compounds which would be used to compile the data-base for easy reference whenever the need arose, appealing for maximum cooperation by the people with the NEU executive for the success of the initiative.

On the issue of rampant land disputes and fraudulent sale of land which has aggravated police and court cases involving indigenes of the town, Sir Peter Nweke explained that a centralised data base would be computerised to curb such fraudulent land transactions, while a special land committee already was in place to handle petitions and complaints concerning land matters in the community.

The PG further thanked the governor for awarding contract for the ongoing construction of the Onitsha Expressway/Oze Nkwelle-Ezunaka Road which would immensely boost easy communication and commercial activities in the area.
