The governor of Anambra state Chief Willie Obiano since inception of his adminstration has initiated a lot of developmental and people oriented policies that have transform Anambra state within a space of two years.

Amazingly these policies have attracted investments that are fostering tangible, significant developments,as well expanding the economic frontiers of the state ,which evidently has created over 52000 direct jobs and 120000 indirect,more so it has been a creative way which has enhanced economic potential of the state ,consequently has astonishingly increased the IGR of the state.

Today due to economic crunch other states in Nigeria are borrowing money ,including the federal government in other to fund projects and pay salaries.While Anambra under Obiano’s amiable,capable indefatigable leadership, the state is busy counting investment proceeds and projects executed,leaving in testimony of the workers as he fails not, to meet the obligation to pay the workers salaries as and when due, without borrowing.

The intellectual and economic prowess of governor Obiano and his sophisticated traits in harnessing both human and natural resources of Anambra as a world class manager is extraordinary ,in fact this is the spark that made this revolution ,the people of the world are emulating today as model possible .

Many States in Nigeria have visited Anambra to learn the new approach to solve economic and developmental equation ,which Obiano invented. Recently Kogi State New Direction Blueprint Team, came to the state on a peer learning and fact-finding mission. Their aim of visiting the state is to learn about the secret behind Anambra success story under Obiano's watch.

The Kogi team visited the MD of Anambra State Investment Protection and Promotion Agency, ANSIPPA, Chief Joe-Billy Ekwunife stated this at the ANSIPPA Headquarters in Awka.Chief Ekwunife made it known to the visitor that Anambra state government is targeting two billion US dollars in investment in the next two years.

Chief Ekwunife further explained that the Agency was set up by Governor Willie Obiano to initiate and support initiatives that will enhance the investment climate in the state as well as ensure that investment processes are devoid of rigours and bottlenecks, said so far the Agency had attracted over 3.2 dollars in investment.

The ANSIPPA however noted that the Agency has been able to achieve such feat because the Governor had created the enabling environment through the provision of adequate security and other basic infrastructure. The outstanding thing about the investment ventures, he noted, was that they were designed to create abundant wealth and job opportunities for Ndi Anambra especially members of the host communities while the investors get maximum profit for their investments.

On his part, The Special Adviser to the Governor on Economic Planning and Budget and Member of ANSIPPA Board, Mr Mark Okoye said the Agency working together with line Agencies, has proved a veritable platform through which the Present Administration is consistently realizing its vision of making the state the first choice investment destination and a hub for business and industrialization in the Country.

The Leader of the Kogi Team, Bar. Moses Okezie-Okafor explained that the exercise was aimed at learning creative governance strategies that will leapfrog Kogi state development-wise by adopting practical strategies from states like Anambra that has made a landmark impact in good governance and accelerated economic growth.
