Residents of the State have been urged to reciprocate Governor Willie Obiano’s people oriented programmes and policies by supporting his second term bid.
Speaking to the ABS in Awka, a trader, Chief Augustine Nnajiofor, said the Governor has given governance a human face by remaining responsive to the yearnings and aspirations of the people.
Chief Nnajiofor, noted that series of stimulus packages introduced by the Governor to cushion the effects of the current economic recession in the country have saved the people of the state from hardship and difficulties.
He observed that while other States are exploring various revenue windows to boost their internal revenue profile, Governor Obiano has sacrificed some sources of government revenue, to give relief to low income earners.
According to Chief Nnajiofor, the Governor’s various empowerment programmes have enabled many youths to become self-reliant.
It will be recalled that the Governor’s Economic stimulus packages among other things suspended the sale of consolidated emblems and the collection of hawkers permit as well as suspended the collection of wheelbarrow tax in all Markets in the state and abolished the imposition of unapproved levies on pupils and students in public primary and Post Primary schools.
