Oyi, Oct. 31, 2017 -- It was a colourful celebration as APGA faithful in Oyi Local Government Area (LGA) gathered in their numbers in solidarity to endorse Gov. Willies Obiano for his second term bid.

The event, which took place at the LG secretariat attracted dignitaries and party loyalists from communities in the LG.

Addressing the crowd, Gov. Obiano promised to continue spreading his administrative benevolence for more developmental projects in the area.

He said his administration had concluded the design of Ogbunike Cave to transform the site to `global tourism centre’, which according to him will promote business activities, attract tourists and add value to the state’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

``In my second tenure, I will re-construct all major roads in the LG and complete the installation of street lighting of the road.

``We are doing all these to transform the state and give it global attraction. So, I encourage you to support our administration to achieve our goals and objectives," Obiano added.

The Commissioner for Information and Communications Strategy, Ogbuefi Tony Nnachetta said Oyi was special in the development of Anambra State.

``We support Obiano for his sincerity and determination to improve on the welfare of our people.

``Obiano has delivered on the crucial needs of the communities. No kidnapping and shops are always on at the night times. People are moving freely, unlike what we experienced in the past,’’ Nnachetta pointed out.

Lady Bianca Ojukwu said that APGA had kept faith with the people of the state and provided necessary infrastructure for the people.

``APGA is the only party that will guarantee `Justice and Equity’ in dispensation of administrative excellence.

``It has delivered result and attracted developmental projects. It is the only party with Igbo ideology,’’ Ojukwu noted.

One of APGA stakeholders in Ogbunike and a former Governorship aspirant in APC, Ogbuefi Harris Chuma said he regretted that APC did not have the interest of Igbos at heart.

According to him this has given rise to marginalisation, intimidation, and victimisation of Ndi Igbo.

``Dumping APC is the best thing that has happened to me. Obiano has signature projects that have affected lives of the people positively.

``We want to consolidate on Obiano's agenda. We need sustainability and voting Obiano for second term is the best that will happen to the state,’’ Chuma observed.

The National Secretary Obiano Re-election Committee, Mr Kene Enefe attributed the existing peace in the state to efforts of the present government.

Enefe, observed that with maximum collaboration with security agencies, the state had experienced unprecedented inflow of investors, which had strengthened the economy of Anambra. 

The Transition Chairman, Oyi LGA, Mr Uche Okafor said Oyi had been passionate about APGA government, which had been the government of the people.

Okafor said that one of the obsessions of the present administration was to sustain the security attained, and promote the state's economy, geared toward making the state financially sufficient.
