A former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has described Anambra as a fast growing economy with vast enabling opportunities.
Prof. Soludo who said this at St. Mary’s Field, Nnewi, Nnewi South Local Government Area (LGA) said the present administration was driven by vision.
He noted that vision of the administration was aimed at making the state the first choice investment destination and the most preferred location to site new industries.
Soludo was addressing a mega rally of the All Peoples Grand Alliance (APGA) that stormed the community in solidarity over multifold achievements by the present administration.
“From my analysis, the administration of Gov. Obiano has stabilised the economy of this state. Very soon, Anambra will be among the 5th largest economies in the world.
“This can only be achieved by creating the enabling environment for investors to come, thereby making the state the hub for industrialisation.
“I give credit to APGA government for this vision. Obiano is a man with high level of humility, endowed with divine wisdom, full of administrative ideas and political prowess to transform the state to global height,” Soludo said.
He urged the people to embrace the vision of the present administration to continue consolidating on the already established works.
Earlier, Gov. Willie Obiano said one of his administrative policies remained to promote the welfare of the people, and promptly intervene in their various needs.
Obiano promised to sustain the economic growth of the state, which was geared toward making Anambra self-sufficient for socio economic opportunities.
Also, the Executive Producer, Anambra Rice, Akai Egwuonwu stressed that Obiano administration had increased commercial production of rice, and other farm produce.
Egwuonwu said the investment of the present government in agriculture enabled export of tubers of yam and vegetables to the U.S., and had surpassed rice consumption capacity of the state.
