Obiano Dedicates Victory To Anambra People
Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra says his victory in the governorship election does not belong to him or All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) but to all the people of Anambra State.
Obiano, in his acceptance speech entitled, 'Time to Build a New World', in Aguleri, Anambra East Local Government on Sunday, declared that "this sweet victory belongs to Ndi Anambra".
"It belongs to the wheelbarrow pushers and the Okada riders who have clearly seen in our recent political experience, a glimmer of light in the horizon.
"It belongs to the farmers in Ayamelum, Onono, Ogbaru, Omasi, Omor and Ufuma who have now realised that agriculture is the future of Nigeria.
"It belongs to the teachers and civil servants who have seen that a motivated workforce is the greatest asset of any government.
"It belongs to the illustrious sons and daughters of Anambra State who have seen the star of this great state rise in the Eastern Skies and have answered our call to bring home their Naira and dollars to put our dear state on the investment map.
"This victory belongs to all of us. My dear people, this victory is not a winner takes it all.
"In the New Anambra of my dream, everyone is a winner," the governor who won in all Local Government Areas of the State said.
He then urged other governorship candidates to join in building the new Anambra that the citizens would be proud of.
"I say to you; my brothers, we have all fought a good fight, but Anambra State is the winner.
"The interest of Anambra State is bigger than the private ambitions of anyone of us.
"Our beloved state needs our talent and our time. The time to build a better place is now.
He described the victory as "a referendum on the solid resolve of the people of Anambra to rise above average in all endeavours.
"We have demonstrated that we are indeed capable of taking charge of our lives and making difficult decisions that will brighten the future of our children.
"I have no doubt in my mind that we shall continue to lay the building blocks for a prosperous tomorrow for all.
"This mandate is dear to my heart. I see it as a historic call to inspire my people to greatness. I see it as a call to deny myself sleep that my people might sleep better.
"I will not give myself rest until our beloved state has fully assumed the status of the model state of Nigeria. This is my promise to you all".
