Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has expressed gratitude to Ndi Anambra for the support they gave the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the last House of Assembly elections.

The party won 26 out of the 30 constituency seats in the state House of Assembly.

Obiano commended the people for demonstrating a resolve to join hands with one another to lay the foundation for a prosperous Anambra State.

He spoke in a state-wide broadcast entitled, ‘Ndi Anambra, Dalu nu!’.

According to the Governor, in voting massively for APGA, Ndi Anambra rose as one people to affirm the words of the Anambra Anthem which say that “… in togetherness, we will build a land of progress”.

He thanked them for casting their votes in favour of the 30 candidates that stood election on the platform of  PGA.

Quoting Eric Hofer, American writer and thinker Obiano observed that “in voting massively for APGA in last

Saturday’s election, you have graciously handed to me and Nkem Okeke, the power to shape the future of Anambra State.

“You have massively renewed, re-invigorated and re-validated the sacred mandate you gave to us to build a better state for you…and we shall not fail you.

“Ndi Anambra we shall not let you down! Ndi b’anyi, oga adili unu mma o!”

Obiano took a swipe at some key PDP figures in the  state who he blamed for manipulating the results of the National Assembly election in the state which he claimed was won by APGA.
