Anambra Executive and Legislative arms of government are making diligent efforts towards forging a stronger bond. The two organs of the state government are working towards achieving the “One Anambra Agenda.”
The government has made the mandate clear to the state’s population. In line with this, the top functionaries of both arms of government are meeting in Agulu, Anaocha Local Government Area. They were attending a two-day bi-governmental arms retreat.
Governor Chukwuma Soludo addressed the media on the retreat’s sidelines. During his address, he emphasized that the government’s basic agenda is to enthrone a liveable and prosperous smart mega city.
According to the Governor, only one ball exists in the field. He stated, that it is the project Anambra, irrespective of party differences. He also pointed out that the determination to make the state work is unflinching.
While speaking on the huge Anambra agenda with a deadline, deploying the Vision 2070 Report, the Solution Manifesto and the Transition Committee document, Governor Soludo also stressed that it is an agenda with limited resources.
He also asserted that Anambra people are in a hurry to witness the transformation of the state from largely being a departure lounge to a place where people will love to live, work, relax and enjoy.
He reeled out the five pillars of his administration to include security, law and order, economic transformation, human capital and social agenda, governance and value system, as well as the environment, stressing that relative to his government’s resource-based constraints, appreciable progress is being made by prioritizing the use of those resources.
The Tony Blair Foundation also helped facilitate the meeting with real sessions and thematic discussions.
Speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly Somtochukwu Udeze led other members to the retreat with all members of the state Executive Council in attendance. The retreat has the theme “Strengthening Leadership Collaboration for Effective Governance and Delivery of the Anambra Agenda”.
