Akpo PG commends Anambra’s grassroots-oriented leadership



PRESIDENT-General, Akpo Development Association (ADA), Nze Henry C. Dim has commended Gov. Willie Obiano’s style of leadership as he works with traditional rulers to reach the grassroots.

  The PG, who made the commendation while interacting with newsmen at Akpo, said that provision of SUV cars to traditional rulers was a demonstration of appreciation to what they have been doing and called on him to do more.

“Traditional rulers are closer to communities just as presidents- general.So, government’s recognition of their efforts and appreciation will go a long way in checking youths’ restiveness, drug abuse, vandalism of government installations, rituals, robbery and  kidnapping.”

  The PG, then, commended the choice of Innoson brand of SUVs.  According to him, it is an encouragement to local manufacturing companies and a boost to standardisation.

  “Anything that is worth doing is worth doing well. Manufacturers should learn from Innoson. Do it well and well-meaning people will recognise you.”

Nze Dim said: “Obiano’s style of leadership of carrying along the traditional rulers and presidents-general is the brain behind Anambra State being the safest state in Nigeria.

  “He that is putting on a shoe understands where it pinches. Criminals are members of families, these families make up communities.Therefore, to stop criminality, leadership of communities ought to be joined with government.So, Obiano has got it correctly, there is no doubt about this.”

On the issue of political zoning, the PG said; “it is a settled matter.It is an initiative that has made Anambra State an epitome of success in Nigeria. Even though politics is a game of numbers, yet zones with less numerical strength are given opportunity; this ensures peace in return.

  “Anybody, no matter how highly placed, that is working against zoning arrangement is a selfish political gladiator that has no interest of the masses at heart,” he said.

  “If zoning has given us a peaceful political atmosphere in the past, why will any reasonable person work against it,” the PG added.
