He said as a governor, all he wants to do after the inauguration ceremony is to hand over on March 17 and rest.
Daily Trust reports that Obiano said:
“I am not eyeing any other political position after eight years as a governor of Anambra State.
“I am not interested in any other political position. I want to rest. Please, let me come out from the one I am already into. I am grateful to God."
“When I came in as a governor, I was fresh and better but now, I have slimed and shrunk up because I worked day and night to lift Anambra to greater heights."
The outgoing governor noted that throughout his tenure, he had several sleepless nights and he specifically does not need anyone to tell him that he has done well.
“I am happy and I want to say I have done well. I have done well as a governor, I don’t need anybody to tell me that I have done well, I know I have done well."
The governor also revealed that within the next two weeks, an international flight from the fleets of Ethiopian Airlines would land at the Anambra international cargo and passenger airport to confirm its international status.
