The visit is interestingly the first time in the history of the state that such would happen being that no government in the South East of Nigeria has
appointed an aide to serve in that capacity.
Welcoming the student bloggers, Aniagoh expressed happiness for the visit stating that the administration of Chief Willie Obiano remains the most youth friendly government in Nigeria.
He said, “Your visit is dear to me; it confirms the widely held opinion that this administration is the most youth friendly government in our dear country”.
“A government that has not only engaged thousands of youths through its people oriented programmes like Daily Sweepers, Road Maintenance and Traffic Management Agencies, etc but also has over 40% youths in its team.”
“A government that has created thousands of jobs through direct investments, indirect employment windows and skill development programmes… It gladdens my heart to see young people like you and I taking part in the democratization process. Kudos to the action governor, Chief Willie Obiano,” he added.
On his appointment, Aniagoh explained that, “Gov Obiano understands the need to effectively engage the online community. He wants Ndi Anambra everywhere to be part of this government and equally get to know about new developments herein as it happens.”
“Today, we have Anambra Scorecard, an online live programme, where Ndi Anambra on the Social Media engage the government… Only a sincere and hardworking governor would subject himself to an unedited scrutiny on the cyberspace,” Aniagoh concluded.
Speaking on behalf of the student bloggers, the proprietor of Campus Amebo, Kachikwu Kachikwu observed that the appointment of Aniagoh as an SSA on Social Media underscores Governor Obiano’s appreciation of the importance of the New Media in social development noting that choosing Aniagoh is tantamount to putting a round peg in a round hole.
Speaking further, Kachikwu said that their visit is to find ways to partner with the government in order to rightly and promptly inform the large students community that Willie is Willingly Working.
According to him, “Chief Willie has unprecedentedly changed the face of Anambra State in less than 2 years. He has turned Awka to an emerging mega city; he has given us a safer environment to study; and he also appointed a Special Assistant on Students Mobilization/Welfare among other laudable feats.” Therefore, “We are more than ever willing to lend our support to the government and use our various platforms to highlight the great changes in the new Anambra under Chief Willie Obiano.”
In his vote of thanks, Ugokwe Chinasa, a publicist with UNIZIK FM thanked Aniagoh for giving them a warm reception while reiterating their vow to support Governor Willie Obiano whose giant strides have left Ndi Anambra happy and students happier.
