Obiano Calls For Collective Efforts Towards Building A Better Nigeria

The Governor made the call during a Eucharistic service at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Awka, in commemoration of this year’s Armed Forces and Remembrance Day Celebration.
Governor Obiano represented by his Deputy, Dr. Nkem Okeke who described security as every body’s business charged all to always contribute to the strengthening of the security apparatus of the State and Nigeria at large.

The Governor while commending Officers and Men of the security agencies in the State for all their efforts in ensuring adequate security of life and property in Anambra, called on officers and Men of the Nigeria Armed Forces to be more committed to duty to ensure a safer and stronger Nigeria, and encouraged Nigerians to always support the security agencies to enable them serve the country better.   

Earlier in a homily, the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Reverend Paulinus Ezeokafor whose message centered on Christ’s baptism, charged Christians to always portray Christ through their daily lives.

He called on Government at different levels to place priority on security of life and property which he said is the cardinal function of the government.

 Bishop Ezeokafor commended Governor Willie Obiano for his effective security network in Anambra State which he noted has restored the confidence of investors to Anambra State and called on other Governors to emulate him. 
The service also witnessed the presence of the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Mr Uchenna Okafor, State Head of Service, Mr Harry Uduh, Managing Director of Awka Capital Territory Development Authority, Venerable Amaechi Okwuosa, President Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Anambra State Chapter, Chief Damain Okeke-Ogene, Managing Director of Anambra State Synage and Advertisement Agency, Chief Jude Emecheta, among other government functionaries.

The service featured renditions by the choir, and special prayers for the State Deputy Governor, Dr. Nkem Okeke who will clock sixty today .
