Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has appealed to the European Union (EU) Delegation Ambassador to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and to the Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS), Michel Arrion, to bring intervention programmes to the state in the areas of flood, power and girl child education.
The appeal was made during the visit of the Ambassador to Anambra State, to seek out new areas of collaboration with the state government, as well as find out how the existing EU programmes in the state have been faring.
Governor Obiano noted that already, EU intervention programmes were on in two Local Government Areas and reported that they were thriving very well. He requested for its extension to other Local Government Areas.
The Ambassador on his part, announced the EU’s plan to undertake a five-year period programme in the state.
Mr. Arrion also appealed to the state and the various communities where EU projects are located to take ownership of them for sustainability.
The Governor had on Wednesday mapped out 28 camps where Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) will take refuge in the event of the impending flood announced by the government.
