Former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Chukwuma Soludo, has described Anambra State as a fast growing economy with vast enabling opportunities.
Soludo, who made this known in Nnewi on Monday, said the present administration was driven by vision, noting that the vision of the administration was aimed at making the state the first choice investment destination and the most preferred location to site new industries.
Soludo said this while addressing a mega rally of the All Peoples Grand Alliance (APGA) that stormed the community in solidarity over multi-fold achievements by the present administration.
“From my analysis, the administration of Governor Obiano has stabilised the economy of this state. Very soon, Anambra will be among the fifth largest economies in the world.
“This can only be achieved by creating the enabling environment for investors to come, thereby making the state the hub for industrialisation.
“I give credit to APGA government for this vision. Obiano is a man with high level of humility, endowed with divine wisdom, full of administrative ideas and political prowess to transform the state to global height,” Soludo said.
He urged the people to embrace the vision of the present administration to continue consolidating on the already established works.
Earlier, Governor Willie Obiano said one of his administrative policies remained to promote the welfare of the people, and promptly intervene in their various needs.
Obiano promised to sustain the economic growth of the state, geared toward making Anambra self-sufficient in socio-economic opportunities.
Also, the executive producer, Anambra Rice, Akai Egwuonwu, stressed that Obiano administration had increased commercial production of rice and other farm produce.
Egwuonwu said the investment of the present government in agriculture enabled export of tubers of yam and vegetables to the US, and had surpassed rice consumption capacity of the state.
