Abia State Governor, Chief Theodore Orji, has won BusinessDay States’ Competitiveness and Good Governance Awards as the best performing Governor in education and youth empowerment in 2014.

The awards, which took place at the prestigious EKO Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, makes it the second time that the Abia State Governor will be wining the prestigious awards.

Recall that he was adjudged as the best performing Governor in the country in Security and Health at the maiden edition of the awards in 2013.  

BusinessDay States’ Competitiveness and Good Governance Awards is highly competitive as States are allowed to make entries and the winner of any category is determined by assessors, who visit the States to verify the claims.

That Governor Orji won the prestigious awards, organized by BusinessDay, the foremost business media organization in Nigeria, will not come to Abians and friends of Abians by surprise, because of the commitment and zeal with which the Governor is piloting the affairs of the State.

Governor Orji at the inception of his second tenure in office vowed to uplift the standard of living of the people and the image of the State. Consequently, this quest to bring good life to the people spurs him to invest in sectors that impacts positively on the people and that include education and youth development.

The Governor Theodore Orji-led administration in Abia State, understands the importance of the youth in the economic development of the State, which prompted him to introduce the “Youth Empowerment Programme,” geared towards creating strong dependable youths with high morals.

The State Government has continued to deepen this laudable and innovative programme, which has drastically improved the lives of so many youths and families in the State.

Developing the education sector is top priority of the Governor Theodore Orji-led administration in Abia State and providing conducive environment for learning is a commitment his administration owes to every school age child in the State.

The essence is to provide equal opportunity to citizens of the State to excel and contribute to the economic development of the State.

This is already manifesting as Abia Students emerged second in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE)  in 2013 and 2014.
