Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State has issued N14 million cheques to two secondary schools and a school of nursing in Adazi-Nnukwu, Aniocha Local Government Area, Anambra State to solve various problems facing the schools having earlier flagged off construction of gully erosion control project in the area.

While issuing the cheques at Adazi-Nnukwu town hall recently, Governor Obi said it was in fulfilment of his election promises to develop all sectors simultaneously both in urban and rural communities in the state.

Governor Obi said his administration was committed to making Anambra one of the best developed and environmentally friendly states in the country before the last lap of his tenure and promised that the state government would always respond to the requests of communities in the state.

He urged them to assist government in fishing out criminals within their midst. The governor expressed his administration's resolve to fight to a halt the rising spate of kidnapping and other violent crimes in the state. He reiterated that the penalty for kidnapping was death sentence.

Obi, however, announced that the state government would soon begin to take statistics of the unemployed youths with a view to providing jobs for them.

Earlier in his address, the President General of Adazi-Nnukwu Development Union, Chief Benedict C. Enemuoh, while congratulating the governor on his success at the polls in last February guber election and thanking him for his total commitment to develop Adazi and other areas in the state, appealed to him to construct a five-kilometre road in the community.

Chief Enemuoh said the outstanding roads include the one from Cemetery Junction to terminate at Girls Secondary School, Adazi-Nnukwu and another one from St Andrew's Catholic Church Junction through Ezeana Anya Road to Union Primary School and Afor centre. The community also appealed to Governor Obi to construct drainage system to control flood water from Obelendu community to Adazi-Nnukwu.
