By Christian Aburime
Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo, former Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and leading APGA aspirant for the November 6, Anambra gubernatorial election has again commended Governor Willie Obiano for the giant infrastructural projects being put in place by his administration.
Soludo made the commendation during a site inspection tour of the multi-purpose 10,000-sitting capacity of Anambra International Conference Center in Awka, with Governor Willie Obiano and other top government officials
The former CBN Governor said the massive International Conference Center when completed will facilitate the hosting of high profile events in the state.
He described Governor Obiano as a very hard working governor who has turned Anambra state into a huge ‘Estate of Construction Site’ with legacy projects that will impact positively on the lives of Ndi-Anambra for many years to come
“By putting in place these pillars of development, Governor Obiano is not just building for this generation but also for future generation” Soludo said
He added that everything he has seen at the site is being meticulously done with great precision in execution and should be highly commended
He further described the gigantic project as one of the ‘Audacity of the big dream’ of the Obiano administration
Soludo also commended the first lady and wife of the Governor, Dr (Mrs) Ebelechukwu Obiano who was also on the tour, as a great pillar and a supportive wife in the administration of Obiano
Governor Willie Obiano in his remarks commended the contractor handling the project for a satisfactory work done so far. He however, directed the contractor to speed up the pace of the work in order to meet the envisaged deadline for the completion of the project
The Speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Uche Episeni Okafor, who accompanied the governor on the site inspection, also commended Obiano for his laudable transformational agenda in Anambra State
The International Conference Center with a minimum sitting capacity of 10,000 persons when completed is expected to house all the facilities and equipment necessary for international conferences and also, would be capable of catering for many functions, such as indoor sports, civic symposiums and a variety of outdoor events
Governor Obiano in company of Soludo also went for a short inspection of the on-going work at the Awka City Stadium being built by the Obiano administration.
During the inspection, Governor Obiano also directed the contractor to speed up the pace of work and the contractor promised to massively improve on what is on ground within the next 30 days!
It is interesting to note with the recently commissioned Anambra Passenger and Cargo International Airport and the many on-going legacy projects in the state, the Obiano administration has continued to receive encomiums and commendations from within and outside Anambra in recognition and appreciation for his uncommon transformational agenda in the state!
