31 Years Later : Anambra Plans to Build Government Building and Lodge

It is of utmost strategic significance for Anambra to have a modernized Government House and Governor’s Lodge, and it also fulfills the people’s desire for the state to receive a legacy project befitting its age of 31.

Anambra state, possibly the only state with such a record, will commemorate its 31st anniversary as a state on August 27 without a proper government building or a governor’s lodge.

In response to the above, Governor Chukwuma Soludo has made a proposal in the revised 2022 budget waiting for approval by the Anambra lawmakers, to construct a new government building that will raise the status of the state that was created in 1991 but has not equipped state-of-the-art facilities that would provide conveniences for state officials and their official assignments.

Having re-assured his readiness to make bold footprints in building the infrastructure sector, it has become imperative to erect a befitting facility in line with others.

Recall it was Navy Cpt Joseph Abulu administration (Military Era August 27, 1991 – December 1991) that acquired erected structures and premises housing the then Anambra State College of Education, Awka, as a temporary government administrative office.

The premises were before the advent of the College of Education used as a worksyard (camp) of Lodijiana Road Construction Company, the company that constructed Enugu-Awka-Onitsha Express Way.

The structure at the old government station Awka (now Amawbia) originally meant for the Chief Judges quarters was converted by the military government to a temporary Governor’s lodge.
