The Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, on Tuesday stated that his second term in office will be “tough.”
The Governor in a statement in Awka by his Senior Special Adviser on Media and Strategic Communications, Mr. Oliver Okpala, said his second term would have zero tolerance for corruption.
He will be sworn in on March 17, 2018 following his victory in the November 18 election in the state.
He said, “Any commissioner, special adviser or civil servant involved in any act of fraud or corruption in Anambra State will automatically be dismissed.
“Also, any government official found to be involved in any shady deal aimed at corrupt enrichment or diversion of public funds will be shown the way out of the Anambra State Government.
“There must be a sense of commitment and seriousness in all public servants in the state who want to be part of the new revolution that will be introduced in the state to serve the people of the state better.
“There will be checks and balances in every aspect of government business now and all loopholes must be completely plugged to checkmate the activities of those who have, in the past, been sabotaging the efforts of the government to give qualitative service to the people of Anambra State.”
Obiano advised anyone who would not cope with the new order in the emerging dispensation to take “a bow or be forced out.”
