Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has said that he has no regrets relating well with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor said this in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C. Don Adinuba, in Awka, the capital, on Friday.
Obiano stated that the good relationship between the Federal Government, led by the All Progressives Congress and Anambra State Government, controlled by the All Progressives Grand Alliance, had “contributed in no small measure to the unrivalled social harmony in the state which has made Anambra one of the most competitive states in the country.”
He said, “Not only do we have excellent relations with all state governments in Nigeria, we also enjoy warm relations with all political parties and their members, including candidates in the 2019 general elections.
“We don’t discriminate in this state and this is visible in our administration as it is made up of members of the Peoples Democratic Party, the All Progressives Congress, and a number of non-Anambra indigenes.
“We are proud that Anambra is today the most peaceful, the most cohesive and the most inclusive state throughout the country.”
He attributed the level of cooperation among federal and state agencies in the state to his strategy to make Anambra “the investment destination of first choice in Nigeria”.
“I have consistently stated that investments are important for places to be peaceful and stable,” he said.
He commended intelligence and security agencies in the state for providing impressive security, especially during the last Yuletide.
Obiano said, “Frankly, I think other parts of the country should come to Anambra State and see how not only federal agencies work together but also how national and sub-national organisations cooperate fully with one another for the benefit of the people.”
