Obiano Gets 1.1bn Donation To Boost Agric And Security
The donation is coming barely 48 hours after the Court of Appeal in Enugu upheld the election of Governor Obiano.
After the court judgment, the governor begun to pay courtesy visits to well-meaning people of the state irrespective of party affiliation to support in building a better state.
The donation was made in one of such visits to the political leader of Ukpo community, Prince Arthur Eze.
The governor, who was in company of the deputy governor, Dr. Nkem Okeke, the national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Victor Umeh and other dignitaries, urged the people of the state, both home and in the diaspora, to emulate the gesture and support his administration.
At the home of the political leader of Ukpo in Dunukofia Local Government Area, Governor Obiano told Prince Arthur Eze that his administration’s agenda were hinged on agriculture, oil and gas, trade and commerce, and industrialisation with security as an enabler, which is an indispensable aspect.
He called on him and his people to, regardless of their political leaning, help and support his administration towards building a better state for the future of the children of the state.
In his response, the political leader of Ukpo community commended the effort of the governor and his political will in practically ridding the state of crime and criminality which had enveloped Onitsha and its environs in less than four months in office.
For the national chairman of the APGA, Victor Umeh, it was a commendable stride which would go a long way in transforming the state while believing that the governor will make judicious use of the funds.
