Obigwe, Okafor, others bag Obiano’s state awards



THE actualisation of the Umueri International Airport has been adjudged the best legacy of the Governor Willie Obiano administration.

  The traditional ruler of Omasi, Igwe Benjamin Okeji gave the indication while speaking to the press in Awka.

The royal father noted that the governor has also instituted other legacies of note such as the International Convention Centre, the street light across communities, the Awka Township Stadium, among others.

  Igwe Okeji urged Professor Soludo to use his CBN vast experience to lift the state to enviable heights and to tackle the issue of insecurity in the state.

  The traditional ruler of Enugwu-Ukwu, Igwe Ralph Ekpe, urged the Soludo administration to address the issue of insecurity which if controlled, will serve as a pedestal to actualise his development blue print.

  Igwe Ekpe listed other expectations of his administration such as  to improve the schools, hospitals, ensure security in the transport sector and to look into the challenges facing travelers, among others.

  The royal father suggested that traditional rulers in the state be given their constitutional 5% financial take home to run their communities, provided with adequate security, included as members of the customary courts, financially supported in Ofala and “Iwaji” ceremonies .

  On his part, the traditional ruler of Umuawulu, Igwe Joel Egwuonwu, also gave kudos to the Obiano administration who has given the state a world class international airport which he has personally used on his trip to Abuja.

  Igwe Egwuonwu urged that Professor Soludo should work towards surpassing the achievements of Governor Obiano using his superlative track record as former CBN Governor as a stepping stone.

  The royal father urged that efforts be made to usher in government presence in Umuanwulu, which has not received a fair share of democracy dividends since the creation of Anambra State.

  On his part, the Chairman of Akpu Village in Ukpo, Johnson Ezedinachi, urged the Soludo administration to work out a laudable programme to develop his village, Akpu, in terms of overall development and by extension to his community, Ukpo.

  Dr. Ezedinachi, a former Awka ZonalCchairman of the Nigerian Medical Association, used the forum to ask for the fortification of the primary health care system in the state with a particular reference to the sustenance of the state health insurance scheme policy which has potentials of saving the lives of the indigent in the society who cannot access health care services in the state.

In their contributions, the Anambra State Chairperson, League of Women Voters, Dr Ego Uzoezie and a university don, Very Rev. Monsignor John Paul Nzomiwu, expect the Soludo administration to improve on the achievements of Governor Obiano.
