The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Tuesday gave an insight into how his second term would likely be, saying it would be “tough.”


Obiano will be sworn in on March 17, 2018 following his victory in the November 18 election in the state where he polled 234,071 votes to defeat closest contestant Tony Nwoye of the All Progressives Congress, who scored 98,752 votes.

In a statement issued on Tuesday in Awka by the governor’s Senior Special Assistant
on Media and Strategic Communications, Mr. Oliver Okpala, Obiano said his second term would have zero tolerance for corruption.

He said, “Any commissioner, special adviser or civil servant involved in any act of fraud or corruption in Anambra State will automatically be dismissed.

“Also, any government official found to be involved in any shady deal aimed at corrupt enrichment or diversion of public funds will be shown the way out of the Anambra State Government.”

The statement added that the governor handed down the warning to commissioners and other top government officials at a meeting in Awka.

Obiano reportedly maintained that with his re-election, governance would not be as usual.

He said, “There must be a sense of commitment and seriousness in all public servants in the state who want to be part of the new revolution that will be introduced in the state to serve the people of the state better.

“There will be checks and balances in every aspect of government business now and all loopholes must be completely plugged to checkmate the activities of those who have, in the past, been sabotaging the efforts of the government to give qualitative service to the people of Anambra State.”

The governor reportedly advised anyone who felt he would not cope with the new order in the emerging dispensation to take “a bow or be forced out of service.”
