 BY KENECHUKWU OFOMAH

Governor Willie Obiano says the State has witnessed so much transformation in the period his administration had lasted because he came prepared into the State Governance.
Governor Obiano stated this when he met with Media Executives and some friends of Anambra in Lagos over the weekend.
Governor Obiano who noted that from his background as a banker, proper planning and vision is very important for the success of any venture, said on inception of office, his administration had crafted a vision to make the State a first choice investment destination and a hub for commercial activities in the country.
He said with this in mind, his administration developed the four key development pillars and their enablers, which he noted, had formed the blueprint through which his administration has touched virtually all aspects of the state economy.


He identified the Agricultural Sector as a major aspect where his government has exemplified vision that materialized in economic prosperity for the very low income earners, adding that with what is happening in the sector, there seems to be no sign of recession in the State especially for the farmers.
The governor pointed out that what had distinguished his administration from the rest was that it has established credible institutions backed by law, that will outlive his tenure and go ahead to form a viable tool for subsequent administrations, as according to him, strong individuals come and go but strong individuals endure.



Governor Obiano explained that the meeting with the Media Executives was to engage them in bringing to limelight, the transformation that is ongoing across the state.
This he noted, will ensure that investors and other partners are made to understand and appreciate the friendly environment in the state and as such, develop interest to bring their wealth to invest in the State.
The governor who emphasized that partnership is key in the realization of the state's overall development initiative, appealed to the Media executives to always verify their reports on the state so as not to scare investors away from the state.
Earlier, the Commissioner for Information and Communication's Strategy, Ogbuefi Tony Nnachetta said the present administration has exemplified good governance evident in the numerous awards the governor is receiving all over the country.
Some media executives who spoke during the meeting asked questions on some grey areas of the state governance while commending Governor Obiano  for recognizing the role of the media in the development of the state and said now that they are aware of the transformation that is ongoing in the state, they will partner with the State government to publicize its programmes and policies.
The meeting was also attended by former Presidential Aspirant, Prof Pat Utomi, Veteran Broadcaster, Dr Boniface Oforkaja, government media personnel among others.
