A former military Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, on Saturday in Awka commended Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra for his efforts in ensuring improved security in the state.
Abubakar made the commendation when he paid a courtesy visit to the governor, noting that Anambra stood out as one of the best states in the country in the area of security of lives and property of residents.
He called on the people to support Obiano to enable him to complete the impressive plans that he had for the speedy development of the state in other sectors.
“From the time Obiano took over the mantle of leadership in the state the people of this state have witnessed a great transformation.
“ Anambra stands out as one of the best states in Nigeria in the area of security.
“I also observe that from the moment we crossed the boundary into this state, there are visible signs of development.
“Your Excellency, I want to congratulate you and the people that made this possible.
“I urge the people living in this state to continue to support you so that they will continue to enjoy the great atmosphere of security in this state, “ he said.
Abubakar said that his visit to the state was to inaugurate a project built by one of his friends, Dr Ben Aghaji, in Nnewi before he decided to pay the governor a courtesy call.
He further commended the governor’s efforts at improving the state’s economy beyond what he inherited from his predecessor.
Responding, Obiano said he was elated at the unannounced visit of the former head of state.
He described the visitor as a great Nigerian leader who midwifed the present democracy in the country and wished him well.
