Quotes from Gov. Obiano

“Let us wriggle ourselves from seeing things as the way they are instead of the way they are supposed to be”

The Awka Dream

My dream is that in eight years you will transform Awka like Dubai did from 1990 to 2013. Let us look to the future, the way things are supposed to be.

Strength of unity

In 1990, Dubai had only three buildings. In 2013 it had transformed. Many of you have traveled abroad so you must transform Awka. Don’t be limited to space.

Flourishing future

Don’t be worried on how it will be funded. God will provide. Dubai didn’t think about fund. Let us show the world that we have brain and ingenuity.
