The governor who stated this in a statement by his Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C-Don Adinuba, said he has no regret relating well with the President. He attributed the peace and harmony existing in the state to the robust synergy between the federal government and Anambra state government of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
He noted that the relationship was not only with state governments, but with all political parties and their members. “The good relationship between the federal government of the All Progressives Congress and Anambra state government of the All Progressives Grand Alliance has contributed in no small measure to the unrivalled social harmony in the state which has made Anambra one of the most competitive states in the country.
“Not only do we have excellent relations with all state governments in Nigeria, we also enjoy warm relations with all political parties and their members, including candidates in the 2019 general elections.
“We don’t discriminate in the state, as can be testified by the presence in our administration of members of the Peoples Democratic Party and All Progressives Congress and a number of non-Anambra indigenes. We are proud that Anambra is today the most peaceful, the most cohesive and the most inclusive state throughout the country”.
Obiano further linked the level of cooperation among federal and state agencies in the state to his strategy to make Anambra “the first choice investment destination in Nigeria.” “I have consistently stated that investments go first and foremost to peaceful and stable places. Frankly, I think other parts of the country should come to Anambra state and see how not only how key federal agencies work together but also how national and sub national organizations cooperate fully with one another for the benefit of the people.
“The unprecedented investment flow of over four billion dollars in just four years in Anambra state is not fortuitous or a mere happenstance but a part of a well planned, deliberate strategy which took into consideration environmental factors affecting investment decisions everywhere in the world.”
He commended intelligence and security agencies in the state for providing impressive security in the state, especially during the Christmas and New Year fiesta.
