Indigenes of Anambra State residents in the United States of America (USA), under the aegis of Anambra Diaspora Forum USA (ADF-USA) say they are ready to invest in the development of Anambra State if the right governor emerges.
The group also said it is ready to get involved in politics to ensure that the right person emerges as governor of Anambra State.
The group in a statement signed by its president, Prof. Toochukwu Madubuko, made available to Newspot in Awka said it will no longer turn a deaf ear to the politics of its home state because its members live comfortably in America.
“The reason we are doing this is because we all have loved ones back home. We take care of them, we visit them sometimes. Our hearts are there so why not play a little part reshaping the land we love. We are fortunate to experience life in a developed country, so our thoughts and opinion matter. It is our duty to help guide our loved ones and help to elect a true leader for our beloved Anambra State.
“As we sit in the comforts of our homes in the diaspora, we are enjoying the hard work from men and women whose visions for their communities, state, and country came to fruition. Those were leaders who yearned for a better world.
The group mentioned various areas in which the next governor of the state must be adept to be able to lead the state and also make a meaningful impact.
“The areas include information and communication technology, vocational education, skills acquisition, sports development, metallurgy development and mechanized agriculture.
“These are areas our members are ready to invest in in the state to develop for the world market. Our members are willing to come home to invest and develop these areas for mutual advantage. But we must first get the leadership right. The right leadership is in itself a huge boost and good security for investment”, Prof. Madubuko said.
