Anambra State Government said it would spend about N1.4 billion on Millennium Development Goal, MDG, projects in seven selected local governments in the state.

Governor Peter Obi disclosed this in Awka yesterday at a stakeholders’ meeting with council chairmen and community leaders of the selected local governments.

The selected councils are Dunukofia, Anyamelum, Anambra West, Anambra East, Orumba North, Awka North and Nnewi South.

“The essence is to involve stakeholders in each of the local government to identify and to decide on projects. “The government will award the contract and take full ownership of the projects in order to achieve the desired goals,” Obi said.

The Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Prof. Chinyere Okunna, said Anambra State had excelled in service delivery and was now a reference point in the practice of participatory government.

In her contribution, the Special Adviser to the governor on MDGs, Mrs. Vivian Nwandu, said the adoption of MDG vision in the state had helped in achieving successful completion of projects across the state
