Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has been urged to work in concert with other South East Governors, traditional rulers, presidents-General and other community leaders to end the sit at home order by none-state actors.
This was contained in a communique issued by the Anambra State Elders Advisory Council after a meeting held at the Governor’s Lodge Amawbia. Chairman of the Advisory Council and former Common Wealth Secretary Grneral, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, while saying that the council commended the level of security in the state, noted that the sit-at-home order had been detrimental to the people of the state in particular and South East in general.
Chief Anyaoku noted that they were impressed with the signature projects embarked by the Governor Obiano led administration, especially the airport and the international conference center. The Council, however, stated that they shall continue to review the impressive development projects being inspired and executed by Governor Willie Obiano with a view to expressing their judgment thereon at their next meeting.
The council also called on the people to come out en masse to exercise their franchise by voting for the best candidate in the November 6th governorship election in the state. Chief Anyaoku explained that the council urged all candidates and their supporters to refrain from personal abuse and focus their campaigns on issues relevant to the peace and development of the state.
