Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has launched a book, capturing his administration’s policies and programme since assumption of office.

Obiano unveiled the book last Sunday at the Professor Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre in Anambra State, as part of activities marking his two years in office.

In her remark, the book reviewer, Mrs. Ogugua Ikpeze said the 588-page book captures the developmental strides of the governor in critical sectors of the state, with pictorial illustrations entitled, Willie Obiano: Turning Deficits into Assets in Anambra.

It was written by Obiorah Nzekwu with the foreword by a former Commonwealth Secretary General, Emeka Anayoku.

According to the Chairman of the occasion, Professor Chukwuemeka Ike, the exploits of the Governor in two years could be felt and seen by everybody.

The high-point of the event was the unveiling of the book. Governor Obiano, who dedicated the successes recorded in the book to the people of the state, appealed for more support to enable him do more for the benefit of all.

Earlier the governor announced that a good foundation had been laid for sustainable development in the state since the inception of his administration.

He pointed out that the development strategy of the state in keeping afloat despite the present economic crunch in the country was his ability to define his vision and mission for the state.

Governor Obiano said that the vision and mission were hinged on four pillars of his administrative blueprint – agriculture, industrialisation, trade and commerce, and oil and gas.
