By Ikeugonna Eleke

Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, has received the 3rd batch of Anambra indigenes evacuated from troubled Jos, in Plateau State.

Obiano, through an agreement brokered with transport giants, GUO, had first instructed that all students of the University of Jos who hail from Anambra, should be evacuated home. He later extended the gesture to all Anambra indigenes in Plateau State.

The evacuated Indigenes of the state dropped off at GUO bus terminal, at the UNIZIK junction, Awka.

Obiano, while receiving them, said his government had always factored in the welfare of Anambra indigenes in the diaspora, and would continue to ensure better livelihood for them.

The Governor who was represented by the Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C. Don Adinuba, said, ‘This is the third set of Anambra citizens evacuated from Jos by GUO in partnership with the state government. Government cannot wait to jeopardize their lives because of the need for prompt intervention.

‘Now you are here, your safety is assured. Your personal data and other information will be collected for other necessary action,’ Adinuba assured.
