ANAMBRA State Elders’ Advisory Council has reiterated its position on the rotation of the office of the Governor of Anambra State among the three senatorial districts of the state.
Commending Gov. Willie Obiano for the key achievements he has recorded in his administration since 2014, while speaking at Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, after its first meeting of the year, Chairman of the Council and Former Secretary-General of Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku stressed that it is the turn of Anambra South to present candidates for the governorship election according to the rotation arrangement,.
Apart from declaring its support for the building of Anambra International Cargo-Passenger Airport at Umueri in Anambra East Local Government Area after receiving a comprehensive briefing by government in a closed door session, the council also expressed satisfaction with pace of work at the proposed site for the airport project.
Members of the council equally took turns to commend Gov. Obiano for laying groundworks that get the airport project completed without obtaining loan for Anambra State. They also commended the state government’s efforts to ensure that Anambra State remains one of the most secure states in the country, and applauded the work of the Anambra State Cattle Menace Committee set up by Gov. Obiano since February, 2015.
It will be recalled that Anambra Elders’ Advisory Council is an advisory body, which bridges any information gap between the public and government’s policies, whose membership cuts across the three senatorial districts of the state.
