Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra has applauded the people of the state for voting massively for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) during the House of Assembly elections in the state.
He was especially glad for the way the people conducted themselves in a peaceful, orderly and law-abiding manner throughout the exercise, The Nation reports.
Obiano, who spoke through the commissioner for information and public enlightenment, C Don Adinuba, also described the overwhelming support for the party as a show of the APGA's performance in the state.
He said the party’s victory has further connected the executive and legislative arms of government, saying it would hasten the development and enhanced living standards of everyone in Anambra.
In his words: “The elections confirm Anambra’s reputation as Nigeria’s safest and most peaceful state, despite one or two incidents.
“Our people inspire the world with their love of democracy and the rapid development which comes with it.
“APGA won 24 of the 30 seats, leaving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with only six seats.
“Their support is as inspiring as it is challenging because it makes all of us in government constantly to seek to attain greater heights for the benefit of our people.
"With both the executive and legislative arms of government on the same page, our people are guaranteed accelerated development and enhanced living standards.
“APGA is Nigeria’s foremost development-oriented party, and the people of Anambra state have embraced our philosophy and development strategy without reservations, making us arguably the most competitive state in Nigeria right now."
