Governor Willie Obiano has announced that the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) government in Anambra State supports President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term bid ‘100 percent’ but will vote for APGA candidates in the legislative elections.

Obiano announced this at Ukpo, headquarters of Dunukofia Local Government Area during his working visit to the council.

He said APGA will continue to support Jonathan and work for him, but that the party will vote-in its own candidates as legislators to represent it at the national level and bring home the largesse attached to their offices.

Obiano made the clarification to the teeming APGA supporters who trooped to the local government to received him and government officials.

He said he has continued with the projects inherited from his predecessor, Peter Obi, because it is the same APGA administration, but will add more to what the former government did. He promised to complete all projects and do more.

In his address, Chairman of Dunukofia Council, Chukwudi Okeke, thanked Obiano for the attention he pays to the local government and pleaded with him to look into other roads yet to be constructed and to include the local government among erosion disaster areas.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Nanka in Orumba North Local Government Area, Obiano promised to turn the erosion site into tourist garden and banned further sand excavation in the area, as his government has put every machinery in place to make it a tourist attraction site.

He described the sight of the erosion as ‘beautif’’ hence his administration would turn it into something meaningful, even as he said it is a disaster because of threat to the lives and property of the two affected communities of Oko and Nanka.

Obiano warned that his government would not take it lightly with anybody seen excavating sand in the area, as the person would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
