“In truth, no other state in Nigeria has been ravaged by erosion on the same scale as Anambra. If the images that we generated from our aerial photography are anything to go by, then the world must come to our rescue before it is too late.
“Indeed, we are raising this alarm in the hope that the attentive world will give Anambra State a chance to survive as a geopolitical entity that deserves its continuous membership of the human race.”
On progress the state has recorded in fighting erosion and keepin the environment clean, the APGA-elected governor said:
“As you may all remember, we demolished a 30-year-old mountain of refuse that was several stories high in Okpoko last year. We have also succeeded in cleaning up the eyesore that used to be the refuse dump on Onitsha-Owerri Road. Indeed, Ndi Anambra, our records speak for us! However, there is still a lot of work to be done to improve upon our present level of efficiency.”
