Anambra Deputy Governor pledges support for Obiano

20 March 2014, 17:11

Awka - The Deputy Governor of Anambra, Dr Nkem Okeke, has pledged total co-operation and commitment to the Governor Willie Obiano,

Okeke made the pledge in Awka on Wednesday in a chat with newsmen.

He said that problems between governors and their deputies   arose when the deputies began to seek and exercise authorities they did not possess.

Okeke, who was a lecturer at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, prior to his election, said he was in government to serve the people of Anambra and not to seek unnecessary influence or to pursue personal ambition.

“I am ready to give the governor 110 per cent support to enable him actualise his vision and policies in Anambra State.

“Whatever duty His Excellency assigns to me, I am ready to carry it out.

“His Excellency has taken me as his younger brother and I want to remain as that,” he said.

He said the government would soon look into the recent attack on the Orient Refinery at Aguleri-Otu in order to resolve it.

According to him, there is a need to demarcate the boundaries to know who owns what there.

Earlier, the deputy governor had addressed members of staff of his office and warned them against all forms of truancy, including lateness to work, gossip and victimisation.

He promised to address the problems raised by the staff members to enable them to function optimally.
