Houston, Texas, December 2, 2014: The international multimedia networks and public policy organization, USAfrica, has adjudged the Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, as the Nigerian Governor of the Year, ending 2014, “based on the USAfrica Governance Index  for combining effective management, practical results and grassroots social responsibility since the blast of his Anambra Governorship whistle on March 17, 2014.”
USAfrica — with almost 23 years of professional journalism and multimedia publishing business from its headquarters in Houston, Texas — has been acclaimed by the CNN, The New York Times, international scholars and public policy leaders as the largest and arguably the most influential African-owned, U.S-based multimedia networks.
A statement issued from Houston, Texas, by the Founder & Publisher of USAfrica and the  first African-owned, U.S.-based professional newspaper published  on the internet, USAfricaonline.com, Dr. Chido Nwangwu, articulated why Obiano bagged the prestigious recognition, noting that “in less than ten months of taking over the mantle of leadership of Anambra State, the banker turned politician has, with purposeful zeal attracted investments and with the courageous heart of a bull, confronted the criminals and miscreants who had unleashed mayhem and gripped the peace loving people of the state in the throes of trepidation, fear and death…. Obiano is proving to the people of Anambra and Nigerians, at home and in the Diaspora, that here cometh a man of proven technocratic competence out to put Anambra State on its rightful place on the map of economic development of Nigeria.”
He adds that  “In the course of the USAfrica Governance Index assessment across the State and other parts of the country, we reached the conclusion that Gov. Obiano has not only done very well in impacting various sectors of Anambra but he has shown that a truly transformative leadership is possible within a relatively short period and utilizing very modest resources to push the great and sometimes boisterous Anambra State to its better heights and security. I believe security is everything!  Akpokuedike Obiano challenged and has, so far, subdued most of the bandits and their infrastructure with his battle coinage ‘Operation kpochapu’ and deployment of crime fighting assets.”
Obiano is on the cover of the January 2015 special edition of USAfrica magazine (attached) and has confirmed to USAfrica that he will attend the event for the award of Governor of the Year on Friday January 16, 2015, in Awka, Anambra State.
On April 14 this year, the Anambra State Investment Promotion and Protection Agency (ANSIPPA) was established, has attracted investments and signed MoUs which the Anambra government has projected, in statements to USAfrica,  at almost U.S$1.5 billion by January 2015.
Also, worthy of note regarding  the dexterity of the Governor to make a difference since the creation of the State almost  23 years ago, is his avowed stance to make Awka a befitting capital city and decongest the area. To actualize this lofty idea and change the face of Awka,  Dr. Nwangwu, a former adviser on Africa business to the ex-Mayor of Houston, recalls that “on May 15, 2014, Gov. Obiano established the Awka Capital Territory Development Authority (ACTDA). With diligent execution, in a couple of years, gone will be that cluttered, rusty, and forsaken look of the capital  city; replaced by a place befitting the industrious and wealthy business sector driven people of Anambra State. Obiano’s dream and work in progress is to chisel out a modern, multi-nuclei city.”
Realising that the people needed a drastic approach to several social and developmental issues confronting them, Governor Obiano had within four months of assumption began to tackle infrastructural decay, aggressively rolled out the caterpillars and engineering equipment to flag off a massive road construction network in the state, and addressed critical health, water and agricultural sectors, to name but a few.
Similarly, in Nigeria, USAfrica also recognizes the commendable works of Governors Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom and Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State.

Forthcoming 2017 BOOK: In this engaging, uniquely insightful and first person reportage book, MANDELA & ACHEBE: Footprints of Greatness, about two global icons and towering persons of African descent whose exemplary lives
Mandela-n-Achebe-by-Chido-book-frontcover-Lrs and friendship hold lessons for humanity and Africans, USAfrica Founder Chido Nwangwu takes a measure of their works and consequence to write that Mandela and Achebe have left “footprints of greatness.”
He chronicles, movingly, his 1998 reporting from the Robben Island jail room in South Africa where Mandela was held for decades through his 20 years of being close to Achebe. He moderated the 2012 Achebe Colloquium at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.“I’ll forever remember having walked inside and peeped through that historic Mandela jail cell (where he was held for most of his 27 years in unjust imprisonment) at the dreaded Robben Island, on March 27, 1998, alongside then Editor-in-chief of TIME magazine and later news chief executive of the CNN, Walter Isaacson (and others) when President Bill Clinton made his first official trip to South Africa and came to Robben Island. Come to this island of scourge and you will understand, in part, the simple greatness and towering grace of Nelson Mandela”, notes  Chido Nwangwu, award-winning writer, multimedia Chido_Nwangwu-speaking-jan11_2014specialist and founder of USAfricaonline.com, the first African-owned U.S-based newspaper published on the internet, in his first book; he writes movingly from his 1998 reporting from South Africa on Mandela. http://www.mandelaachebechido.com/

  Dr. Chido Nwangwu, moderator of the Achebe Colloquium (Governance, Security, and Peace in Africa) December 7-8, 2012 at Brown University in Rhode Island and former adviser on Africa business/issues to the Mayor of Houston, is the Founder & Publisher of Houston-based USAfrica multimedia networks since 1992, first African-owned, U.S-based newspaper published on the internet USAfricaonline.com; CLASSmagazine, AchebeBooks.com, the USAfrica-powered e-groups of AfricanChristians, Nigeria360 and the largest pictorial events megasite on the African diaspora www.PhotoWorks.TV .

    Leon ibeka, you said it all. Good work is good work especially when it is evident regardless whether it is one day or one year. People must learn to abandon their negative reckless judgment of people ln power and for once acknowledge that which is good and promising.

  3. Leon Ibeka says:

    I read with both amusement and dismay the very few negative comments regarding USAfrica’s valid , factual and NEWS choice of the roundly acclaimed / performing Willie Obiano as the Governor of The Year 2014!. I have seen Obiano’s works especially the all important and UNEQUALLED RECORD ON SECURITY, first hand; agric farms, investments, etc and I STRONGLY COMMEND USAfrica for their excellent pick!

    Yes it is not too early to pick a man or any woman whose record rich first year ( 2014) is ending in only 4 weeks!!. We should commend USAfrica’s Publisher for raising the bar and time of performance into the first year!!!. We want Governors who will ACHIEVE RESULTS , every year, and be recognized by credible media such as USAfrica!. Well done Dr. Chido for setting a higher standard!!!.

    @Cordelia Adaigbo Nwokocha made a very reckless comment by her baseless and malicious use of “Yellow Journalism”.She read ( or may be not) the USAfrica Governance Index and FACTS justifying the NEWS recognition as professionally summarized by USAfrica Publisher Dr. @Chido Nwangwu. I don’t think it is right for Cordelia to sit in front of her Keyboard in America and attack a first class multimedia executive who has been with USAfrica editors, reporters and researchers on ground in Anambra and across Nigeria and Africa!

  35. We are commanded to pray for all those in Leadership whether we approve of their accomplishments or not.We have to remember only God sets up Leaders and only Him can bring them down.Having said that we know no one can read the human mind,let us not be quick to throw the baby away with the bath water.There is always various routes to reach a destination.We are all unique ,no two are alike as designed by the Allwise God.I agree with Abraham Madu,that Dr Chido Nwangwu will never throw his weight behind a losing horse so paradventure as they will say if setting him on this Pedestal will always be an unspoken constant reminder for him to know that all eyes are on him and he can not afford to disappoint.Look at it this way when we have an unsaved one do we not unleash the Holy Spirit on them asking him not to give that loved one any rest until they turn their life around,have we not seem the Lord work on such individuals.Let us all I instead of negativity resort to fulfilling our part that is praying for him and his cabinet and the indigenes of that God proclaimed # 1 State it is not a coincidence that Anambra starts with the first letter of the alphabet.When we obey because God honors obedience we will see that the promises of God that never fails will manifest for God can turn the hearts of kings like a body of River and when that is done we will experience the reign of a Righteous King and the people will be happy.I see this honor as a reminder.Governor Obiano,and I pray God to give you grace to be able to rule God’s people in Spirit and in truth as judgement will always begin in God’s house,I pray for wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job etc and to always seek the Father as Jesus did before ever embarking on anything and for the Lord to give you discernment to be able to differentiate right from wrong and having done this you will be able to stand and like Joshua have God success when BIBLE(Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) becomes your go to guide you can never go astray God bless the Governor and his cabinet to know to do,what to do and when to do Jesus mighty and powerful name I pray amen and amen!!!

  41. @ Chido Nwangwu, is it not too early to crown this man. He is not even up to a year in office and you are bestowing on him such praise. Why not allow him spend at least half of his tenure and assess him. The media has a way of praise singing Nigerian political leaders who eventually turn out to be a disappointment. Let’s thread with caution.

  43. Premature crowning! What has he done? Not even up to 6 months in office. This man is yet to face the torse and turns of public office. He has not even gone through a budget cycle, design and execute a passed budget. Can we please stay away from praise worship of political office holders till they prove their worth.
