Gov Obiano Returns From US Vacation.
The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has returned from his short annual vacation in the United States Yesterday, dismissing Rumors of his alleged ill health.
Governor Obiano arrived Awka the state capital yesterday evening to the warm welcome of family, friends, colleagues and Ndi Anambra thereby dispelling malicious rumours of illness reported in some newspapers the day before.
Governor Obiano who was bustling with energy and vitality when he arrived the Governor’s Lodge in Amawbia seemed to have had a great time mapping out strategies on how to finish his first term in office on a strong note and endear himself to Ndi Anambra in readiness for the gubernatorial election that comes up later in the year.
Addressing the crowd that gathered to receive him on his arrival, Governor Obiano dismissed the story that he was flown overseas to receive treatment for an eye problem as a mere rumour that should be disregarded by Ndi Anambra.
“I went to the US for a short vacation. But I am back in Awka. I do not have any injuries anywhere. I am in a great shape. I have no problem at all with my health,” Governor Obiano declared while observing that the false story about his health may not have been unconnected with the people’s wish to see their governor again after being away for short while on vacation.
“Ndi Anambra were missing their governor. It is okay. I am back now! Dalunu,” he assured with a broad smile.
He explained that after observing a period of rest, he had returned to focus more intensely on meeting the expectations of the people and widening the circle of excellence that his administration has established in the state to ensure that Anambra assumes its full status as a pacesetter among all the states in the federation.
It would be recalled that Governor Obiano had embarked on an annual vacation in the first week of January after what was widely adjudged to be a remarkable year for him; a year that brought out his fighting spirit as he competently managed the affairs of the state in a manner that minimized the impact of the current recession on the vulnerable populations of the state.
