Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has said his decision to run for a second term in office is to make the state self-sufficient.

Obiano made this known in Abuja on Friday, August 11, 2017when he submitted his governorship nomination form at the national headquarters of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.

The governor also said that his target remains touching the lives of residents of the state after his eight years tenure.

Obiano said, “In agriculture, the state is doing very well and has attained self-sufficiency in rice production. We consume 320,000 metric tonnes and now we produce 375,000 metric tonnes per annum, from 80,000 metric tonne when we assumed office.

“What I want to leave behind as my legacy when I leave office after eight years is to ensure that Anambra State is self-sufficient in its revenue sources so that we will not have to be waiting for Abuja to run the affairs of governance.”

The governor also expressed confidence at the possibility of clinching victory at the poll saying his government had achieved 66 per cent target in internally generated revenue.
