By John Ugo, Awka

The Anambra State Govermor Chief Willie Obiano on Thursday held a valedictory executive council meeting as his eight years tenure in office ends.

He is expected to handover to the Governor elect, Prof Charles Soludo on March 17.

Obiano received the report of the Prof. Chukwuma Soludo-led Vision 2070 committee.

The Vision 2070 committee had been inaugurated by Obiano on November 20, 2019, with a mandate to produce a report that would ensure the full industrialization of the state before 2070.

Obiano reassured that the transition will be seamless, emphasizing that he will ensure that the incoming administration will not experience any challenge.

While presenting the report, Soludo thanked the Governor for the opportunity to serve in that capacity.

Speaking on the report, Soludo said: “What makes this document outstanding is ownership. This is an Anambra plan rather than a government plan. We made extensive consultations, to come out with this report.

“The implementation of this report will begin with the coming administration.”

Meanwhile, the Chairman of Anambra State Investment Promotion and Protection Agency (ANSIPPA), Prince Ike Chioke, expressed confidence in the capability of Soludo to take the state to a higher level.

Chioke who also held a valedictory meeting of ANSIPPA at the same venue said the greatest of Obiano’s achievements, was letting Prof. Soludo succeed him.

“Obiano has many times been humble enough to also say it that he is happy that someone who is better than him will be succeeding him.

“There is no doubt about the capability of the governor-elect, and we are sure that he is coming to office prepared, and with a clear understanding of what he wants to achieve,” Chioke stated.
