Governor Peter Obi Set to Render Account of Stewardship Today + Photos of Days as Governor

Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State will today, (Saturday), present what he calls “End of Tenure Report” to the people of the State.
According to a release made available to the press by the Chairman of the Anambra State Elders Council, Dr Dozie Ikedife, the event, which is taking place at the Women Development Centre, Awka, is organized to enable Governor Obi render an account of his stewardship to the people who elected him into office.
“Today’s event will offer him the opportunity to answer to his real masters, clarify his approach to governance, his developmental priorities and the overall impact of his tenure.

“It will also offer him the chance to talk about some critical decisions he took as the Governor and the reasons that informed them.
“We also want to place it on record that this is yet another noble precedent being set by Mr Obi. He is telling every public office holder that there will always be a day of reckoning”, the release said.
Ikedife said the planning of the event by Anambra Elders is another innovation in good governance, showing that “we have worked well with our Governor. He is innovation-friendly, and he has always taken the lead in the introduction of new order in Nigerian politics.
“The idea of rendering account in this clime is starting with him, just as he pioneered the dethronement of a serving Governor through legal processes. He also came back from impeachment through legal processes; leading in the introduction of staggered elections, among others.
“Even though the people of Anambra State believe that he has performed creditably, the event will be an opportunity for him to interact with them and it is a good innovation for other States to copy”, Ikedife said.
Today’s event, which will be broadcast live on Silverbird and AIT television as from 10.30 am, will be chaired by Chief Emeka Anyaoku.
