In envisioning and inaugurating the Anambra Vision 2070 Committee in 2020, Gov Willie Obiano took a bold step towards repositioning Anambra State for the better – to gain stability in the present and gain momentum for rapid economic growth in the future.
His resolve to bring this vision to reality ensured that the committee was headed by a visionary like Prof. Charles Chukwuma Charles Soludo, who also won the November gubernatorial election and will take over from Obiano as Governor of Anambra State on March 17.
As the transition committee that will see to the seamless transfer of government from Obiano to Soludo is inaugurated today, one cannot help but wonder at the level of passion and commitment to the growth and development of Anambra State and the wellbeing of ndị Anambra, which Obiano has demonstrated throughout his administration.
Chairperson of the transition committee, Dr Oby Ezekwesili, captured the essence of such patriotic commitment aptly when she noted that ‘the vision of the committee was to boost the effectiveness of the Governor-elect and his incoming government team to epitomize, “READY TO GOVERN” and build a liveable and prosperous smart megacity’. Dr Ezekwsili said this during the inaugural session of the committee earlier today at the Golden Tulip Agulu Lake Hotel, Agulu, Anambra State.
Soludo’s readiness to govern and his proven commitment to the “Vision”, to build a new, strong, stable and economically viable Anambra State, informed Governor Obiano’s decision to entrust the State’s future to him. With Obiano’s iconic legacy projects: the Anambra Airport, International Convention Center and the Awka Township Stadium representing early harvests of the Anambra Vision 2070, there’s no doubt that Soludo will run with the vision to give ndị Anambra a liveable and prosperous homeland.
