The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has flagged off his re-election campaign ahead of November gubernatorial election with a laundry list of promises, including building the state's first new airport. Speaking on Tuesday while addressing the capacity crowd at the Alex Ekwueme Square in Awka, the Anambra state capital, Governor  Willie Obiano, who flagged off his re-election campaign, promised to build a new airport and increasing the wages of civil servants, adding that a bill to increase the workers’ salary is already before the state’s House of Assembly.

“For all civil servants, we have proposed a 15 per cent increment in salaries like we did in 2015 and once it is approved, your salaries will be increased,” Obiano said to deafening cheers from the crowd.
 
Premium Times reported that the governor who disclosed further that a new airport would be completed in the state within the next four years, if re-elected, said; “Soon, there will be no need for people to travel to Enugu and Port Harcourt to board flights.

“It will be done here in our own state, let’s go now and spread the news of Onye aghana nwanne ya (be your brother’s keeper) because this is our own state.”
 
Governort Obiano, the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), will contest against 36 other candidates at the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Anambra State scheduled for November 18.
 
Other top contenders at the polls include Tony Nwoye of the All Progressives Congress (APC); Oliseloka Obazee of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP); and Osita Chidoka of the United Progressive Party (UPP).
