Governor Willie Obiano is today marking his sixty-sixth birthday anniversary.
The birthday, which is his last in office as the governor of Anambra State, would be marked in a solemn way as he will as usual, use the opportunity to meditate, with his family, on his relationship with his maker and God’s abundant blessings to him and people around him.
While urging all Anambra people at home and elsewhere to keep remembering him in their daily prayers, Governor Obiano asked those, who have planned to present him gifts or placed advertisements in the media to donate the gifts or give the monetary value to any charity of their choice, especially the Caring Family Enhancement Initiative, CAFÉ, which runs, among other things, a home for the aged and mentally challenged people in the society, many of whom, were abandoned for several years by their respective families.
A release signed by the commissioner for Information & Public Enlightenment, Mr. C. Don Adinuba said Chief Obiano is grateful to God for blessing him with excellent health and for lifting him, the son of a missionary primary school teacher, whose wife was a fish seller to key leadership positions in both the private and public sectors where he has done his best to demonstrate authentic Christian values in the belief that any person, who serves fellow beings and society well is at the same time worshipping God directly.
According to the release, Anambra State Government is appreciative of the gestures of love and solidarity, which have come spontaneously from not just people and organizations based in the state but also those outside.
