The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano has assured the people of the state that 2018 would bring immense prosperity to the footsteps of individual families and communities.
In a New Message signed by James Eze, his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Governor Obiano assured that the key to unlock the prosperity of the state is neatly embedded in the 2018 budget which came under the instructive heading: Budget of Value-for-Money, Economic Diversification and Job Creation.
According to him, his administration had made sure that the basic needs of families such as job creation and income diversification were adequately covered in the 2018 budget and expressed confidence that a faithful implementation of the budget would prove to be the ultimate socio-economic game changer the state needs.
"We shall tackle unemployment and create more economic elbow room for Ndi Anambra. This can be seen in the 43 percent increase in the budget from N116.5bn in 2016 to N166.9bn this year," he explained further pointing out that the people of the state had so much to look forward to in the New Year.
"Ndi Anambra, I know that we are coming out of a difficult year. It was a year that challenged everyone of us individually and collectively. But there's always a silver lining behind every cloud. Ndi Anambra this year shall be better than the outgone year," Governor Obiano further assured.
He urged the people to approach the New Year with prayers and hope as the country's most difficult periods are all behind them now as they crossover into another year.
"Ndi Anambra, we shall not allow the string difficulties the nation faced in the last few weeks of December to dampen our enthusiasm as we step into the New Year with hope and optimism. Nigeria has survived many difficulties and time has shown that we always overcome our challenges. I wish you a Happy New Year," Governor Obiano declared.
He said the estimate illustrates his administration’s resolve to continue to deliver the dividends of good governance to the people of Anambra. The governor, while analyzing the budget, said the Value-for-Money entails that the state would “carefully assess all activities and make difficult trade-offs to ensure we focus solely on implementing projects and programs that provide commensurate value to Ndi Anambra .
