Former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, has described Anambra State as one of the fastest growing state in the country.
The former leader, whose administration created the state in 1991, stated this in Awka, the state capital, during a maiden edition marking the history of the state.
Represented by Chief Simon Okeke, a former Police Service Commission Chairman, Babangida noted that the state indigenes have contributed so much towards national development.
He enjoined anambrarians not to relent in their “creative and resilient spirit of making something out of nothing.”
In his address, governor Willie Obiano of the state described the achieving greatness of the people of state as encouraging.
He further noted that the state would continue to honour the excellence of her distinguished citizens.
