… Obidigwe holds thanksgiving
GOVERNOR of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano has called on the people to always remember the place of appreciation in their interactions and co-existence with others.
Gov. Obiano made the call while speaking at a thanksgiving Mass for Member Representing Anambra East-West Federal Constituency of House of Representatives, Chief Chinedu Obidigwe at St Joseph’s Pro Catholic Cathedral Aguleri in Anambra East Local Government Area.
According to the governor, the importance of appreciation in life cannot be over-emphasised, adding that “gratitude leads to beatitudes while quantum of beatitude one has determines his or her altitude in life.”
Gov. Obiano used the occasion to laud Obidigwe for the exemplary representation he has so far afforded his constituency at National Assembly, urging never to look back.
Cautioning youths to desist from drug abuse, cultism and other acts capable of ruining their future, while stressing his administration’s high premium on youth welfare, Gov. Obiano also said that the Operation Kpochapu II was always on the alert to deal with any form of criminal that may be reported anywhere in the state, not only in the on-going festive period but even afterwards.
Extoling Gov. Obiano’s style of governance, which he said was peerless in Anambra annals during a vote of thanks, Chief Chinedu Obidigwe reiterated his commitment to giving the best representation to his constituents with keen interest in attracting democracy dividends to all.
The thanksgiving mass was celebrated by Auxiliary Bishop of Onitsha Archdiocese, Most Reverend Dennis Isizor, who said it was a great joy when one remembers what God has done and shows gratitude stating that the church helps those in leadership positions to seek God’s face, look into their performance and ensure they relate well with the electorate as well as ensure they work as expected.
Other dignitaries at the event were Speaker of Anambra House of Assembly, Uche Okafor, legislators, APGA faithful, priests from various denominations, traditional rulers, among others.
