Governor Peter Obi has said in Awka that his administration is ending the 2009 fiscal year in excess of N10 billion in credits.
Speaking yesterday at St Matthewâ€™s Catholic Church, Amawbia, where he led his family and members of the State Executive Council to a Church service to mark the Christmas celebrations, Obi assured the people of the state that the state government would continue to meet their aspirations through prudent management of resources.
According to him, the rebuilding of the state is the collective responsibility of everybody and stressed the need to sustain the present stability and healthy financial status that distinguishe the state from others.
In his sermon during the service, the officiating priest, Rev. Fr. Clement Oguejiofor urged Christians to reciprocate the love of Christ to them through selflessness.
He also spoke of the need for the people to support the governor, recalling that Obi was the first governor in the state to touch the lives of the people in a special way through humility and exemplary conduct of state affairs.
He urged the people to remain vigilant and shun the antics of desperate politicians who he said, are out to exploit the state.
