The colourful ceremony took place at the newly commissioned International Conference Centre, Awka, Anambra State
While presenting the 200-page report to Governor Willie Obiano, Prof Chukwuma Soludo gave a detailed background on how the committee came about the report which is expected to provide a plan which successive governments in Anambra State can rely upon for strategic direction of policies and programmes in developing the State
Prof Soludo, however, before making the formal presentation of the report told Governor Willie Obiano that the committee embarked on extensive consultation with many stakeholders’ groups, market and trade unions including church denominations, political appointees, traditional rulers, Anambra Elders Forum, and several other stakeholders.
He said a window of opportunity was also extended to all Ndi-Anambra to send in their ideas and suggestions
He emphasised that the report can truly be said to be an Anambra-owned report, stressing that successive governments irrespective of political party affiliation can also say it’s an Anambra owned plan
He thanked Governor Willie Obiano for giving everyone the opportunity to serve as a member in the Committee. He also expressed his appreciation to all the members of the committee for utilising their time and energy in serving selflessly in the committee
Soludo further assured Governor Willie Obiano that the implementation of the committee report will begin with the next administration, which incidentally, will be headed by him as the Governor-elect
Governor Willie Obiano in his brief remark thanked all the members of the committee for doing a great job in coming out with a plan that will seamlessly guide future administrations in the quest of fast-tracking growth and development in the State
It will also be recalled that the Anambra Vision 2070 Committee was inaugurated on the 21st of November 2019 by Governor Willie Obiano and the committee was charged to draft a 50-Year Perspective Plan for Anambra State as a future plan to drive development and growth in the State.
