…Says govt earned ndi Anambra’s trust in 100 days
THERE is no room for insecurity and dirty environment in Anambra State.
Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, stated this yesterday during an interactive session with media executives.
Gov. Soludo used the parley to render account of his stewardship in his first 100 days in office to ndi Anambra.
According to the governor, government’s devotion to provision of adequate security and clean environment in the 181 communities is predicated on the role the two sectors will play in his administration’s policy of transforming Anambra into a livable homeland and prosperous mega city through disruptive changes that will ultimately meet the pride of the people for ages to come.
Explaining that government used the last 100 days to put in place major initiatives that will serve as roadmap to delivering on its mandate in these crucial areas and allied sectors, the governor also said that successes recorded by his team have rekindled ndi Anambra’s trust in the administration.
The governor said that with recent rise in destruction of lives and properties in some parts of the state, since the killing of three police officers on his security detail, by gunmen, government has no option than introducing drastic anti-terrorist push backs such as curfew in eight local government areas and raids on locations being used as kidnappers and bandits.
Gov. Soludo also used the session to promise that government will not only start implementing most of policy frameworks innovated and test-run through pilot schemes in its first 100 days, but will also keep on laying more strong foundations of good governance and democratic dividends that meet global standard.
According to Mr. Governor, some of the new innovations include ramping up the coconut and palm revolution economy through youth sensitisation in the communities on the need to attract them into keying into government’s agenda to achieve a mega state, stepping up efforts to reclaim back Anambra State from degradation, massive road construction to open up communities for investors.
Gov. Soludo also said in coming days, the state fire service will no longer be controlled from Awka but local governments, putting modalities of making Anambra free from traffic congestion to enhance free movement across the state, revving up community-choose-your-project initiative to trigger infrastructural development in the grassroots, among other policies.
