Anambr State Governor, Willie Obiano, has directed members of his administration to face their responsibilities with greater vigour and dedication since the “election is now over”. Obiano, in a memo to Executive Council members, made available to the media on Wednesday, said “Much as all of you were involved in the electioneering campaign and gave the House of Assembly election your best shot, this is not the time to rest on your laurels, but time to work harder for the people of our dear state who expect so much from us.” He commended the State excos for working tirelessly in the victory of the party at 2019 House of Assembly poll where APGA won 24 out of 30 legislative seats, adding that “you scored over 80%, and this is a brilliant performance in any examination.”
According to Obiano: “In view of the enormous task ahead of us, we should see the renewed mandate freely given to APGA at the weekend as a call to service, as an opportunity to roll up our sleeves in a way we have never done and worktirelessly.
“Partisan politics is over. Do not see people in other parties as your political opponents any more. You should rather see them as brothers and sisters who are contributing in their ways to the rapid growth of our state. “Our policy of constructive engagement should be your way of life as regards your relationship with members of other parties at the state level and the national level. “We will make greater economic and social progress when we deepen our political culture of inclusiveness, amity, camaraderie and solidarity which has thus far served us well. “Our ancestors and leaders like the Great Zik of Africa bequeathed to us a legacy of politics without rancor and politics without division. We have a responsibility to continue with it and hand it over to future generations”.
