Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano has applauded the members of the Anambra State House of Assembly for the mature way they handled the misunderstanding that arose in the House on Tuesday.
Speaking from Paris where he is on an official tour with President Buhari, Governor Obiano commended the Speaker of the House, Hon Mrs Rita Maduagwu, the principal officers and other members of the House “for rising to the acid test of true democracy and peacefully resolving the mild misunderstanding that erupted among them saying that the matter would have degenerated to something unpleasant if handled by a less competent crop of leaders.”
The Governor expressed confidence in the ability of Anambra lawmakers to always resolve their differences in the truest tradition of representative democracy and forge stronger ties that would accelerate the development of the state.
He also expressed contentment with the assurances by the Speaker and the Principal Officers of the House that whatever grey areas that might be still lingering in the House would be amicably resolved in the next few days.
Speaking further, Governor Obiano assured that Anambra remained Nigeria’s most peaceful and safe state and that his administration would continue to work assiduously to ensure that the state maintained that status.
