Obiano gets INEC’s Certificate of Return


Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, who was announced winner of the state’s governorship election last Saturday, has been issued a certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

His deputy, Dr. Nkem Okeke, and Mrs Nkoli Mmegbuanaeze of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), who was also elected on Saturday into the House of Assembly to represent Idemili North State constituency as a replacement for her late husband, Hon. Francis Mmegbuanaeze, also received their certificates of return.

An obviously excited Obiano in his address assured the people of Anambra State that himself and his deputy were poised to work for the state, more than what was experienced in their first four years.

The governor said he would ensure massive development in all areas of the state, so that by the time he would have completed his eight-year term, the state would wear an entirely different look.

Obiano, who spoke after receiving the certificate, said: “I’m happy to have picked my certificate of return, which confers on me the assignment of governing Anambra for another four years. I thank God who performed the miracle that made my 21 over 21 victory possible.”
