He said: “This is my first visit to Anambra since Governor Willie Obiano was reelected the governor of the state. For the past three years, you and I have developed friendship with people of the state based on our mutual belief that government must be about total commitment to improving the lives of the people.

“Anambra State is well recognised across the country as the leading manufacturing centre, which is why in one of my previous visits, I devoted my time visiting some of the manufacturing firms in the state especially notable ones in Onitsha and Nnewi.

These are zones in the state, which have carved a niche  for themselves as industrial hubs and not just industrial hubs in Anambra State, but industrial hubs in Nigeria.
