From education to health and from infrastructure to power, Chief Willie Obiano, the governor of Anambra state is said to have done well.
But will his good works retain the state for his political party, All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA in the next governorship election? This is the major question that many political actors are trying to answer in the state. Please join the conversation for the sake of Anambra state and Nigeria in general.
Chief Willie Obiano (born August 8, 1955) is a Nigerian banker, technocrat, politician and the fourth Democratic Governor of Anambra State.
Governor Obiano began his banking career in 1981 at the First Bank of Nigeria before he left to join the services of Chevron Oil Nigeria Plc as accountant and rose to the position of Chief Internal Auditor.
In 1989, he was one of the auditors that audited Texaco Refinery in Rotterdam, Netherlands. In 1991, he joined the Fidelity Bank as Deputy Manager and head of Audit unit and rose to the position of Executive Director on October 2003.
He left the Banking System to join the Nigerian politics and contested the November 16, 17 and 30 Anambra State gubernatorial elections on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA. He won the election and was sworn in on March 17, 2014 to succeed Peter Obi.
