Gov. Obiano Promises More Dividends After Swearing-in For 2nd Term
Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on Saturday promised to deliver more dividends of democracy after his swearing-in for a second term in office.
The governor took the oath of office administered by the Chief Judge of Anambra State, Justice Peter Umeadi, shortly after his deputy, Dr. Nkem Okeke had done the same at a ceremony heralded by 21 gun salute.
In his inauguration speech, Obiano said that his re-election was a victory for Anambra people, even as he promised to work hard for the development of the state.
“I stand today to declare a new season of service to Anambra people. We are reaching the skies and I thank you for choosing me and my deputy, Dr. Nkem Okeke. I bow to the leadership of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for fighting for our victory at the November 18, 2017 elections. I also accept the decision of the people in good faith,” he said.
Dignitaries at the event include Governors Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Enugu and Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State and Darius Ishaku of Taraba State.
Others are the Oni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II and the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adeyemo Adejugbe Aladesanmi III.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was represented by the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr. Chris Ngige, while former governors of Anambra, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Chinwoke Mbadinuju, and Mrs Virgy Etiaba were also in attendance.
Former Information Minister, Labaran Maku, President General Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, Senators Andy Ubah, Victor Umeh, and Joy Emordi also graced the occasion at the capital, Awka.
