Gov Obi distributes new cars to Anambra Directors

Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State on Monday distributed 58 brand new cars to Directors in the state Civil Service, the first Governor since the state was created to do so.  Governor Obi presented the vehicles at the Governor’s Lodge.
Obi said the gesture was a fulfilment of his earlier promise and demonstration of his commitment to encourage and motivate workers and assured that he would continue to provide all necessary incentives that would enable workers improve on productivity as well as continue working for the state till the last day of his government.
In his appreciation, the state Head of Service, Chidi Ezeoke, while thanking the Governor for the gesture, recalled that it was the first time a Governor provided such incentive since the Old Anambra State.
Ezeoke noted that Obi has brought smiles to the faces of civil servants and called on other Governors to follow his footsteps to assist workers to attain their full potential.
The state Head of Service explained that the vehicles would enhance the activities of the Directors being the hub of the Civil Service and expressed the hope that the State would never slide back to its difficult past.
In the separate reactions, some of the beneficiaries, including Harry Udu and Godwin Uzoigwe, said the Governor had given an unprecedented life line to the state workforce and was leaving legacy posterity would always be proud of.  He assured that they would reciprocate the gesture by working harder and diligently to achieve the set goals
Also reacting, Azuka Okeke said it was surprising to them where the Governor got all the billions of Naira he was spending for the progress and development of the state.
He, however, said it was possible due to his fiscal discipline and responsibility.
