• Highly acclaimed International Cargo/Passenger Airport

When one of the largest airports in Nigeria – Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport – successfully concluded its maiden test flights on April 30, 2021, the feat was  described as “a dream come true.” The dream of building an airport in Anambra conceived 30 years ago was faithfully fulfilled by a man with a resolute and clear ambition.

A visit to the four major airports in Nigeria and other state airports will make you conclude that the Anambra airport is indeed a treasure bestowed upon the people. It is a symbol of a man, who stood against all odds. Having received several cautions, discouragements and backlash from people, Governor Obiano knew this was a project that had to be accomplished. Building the airport was considered a dream too big to accomplish, a mountain too great to climb, a river too deep to swim. 

  • A 12,000-seater International Convention Center

As part of the build-up to his exit from office after eight years, Governor Willie Obiano has today commissioned the ten thousand capacity International Convention Centre built tastefully and furnished to standard. With only minor finishing touches left, Governor Obiano decided to commission the project which is one of his signature projects. The commissioning of the Convention Centre was also marked with a merit award to deserving Anambra State indigenes and other non-indigenes who have partnered with the governor to make his modest contributions in the people’s collective drive to move the state forward. Obiano also recognized the efforts of his Executive Council Members in his efforts governing Anambra State in the past eight years.

  • A FIFA rated modern Awka city stadium

Governor Willie Obiano has built, not just a stadium in Awka, but a FIFA-standard stadium, located in the heart of the city, meaning that international tournaments would, henceforth, be hosted in Awka. Few months ago, this glittering stadium within state of the art modern facilities, was a piece of abandoned land where daring herders grazed their cattle. It is designed as a compact sporting facility with a covered stand, swanky dressing rooms, an electronic scoreboard, FIFA-standard pitch and Olympic-standard tartan tracks for sprinters. The facility can accommodate future expansion possibilities and still retain a large parking space.

  • An International hotel

Chief Willie Obiano is a man who thinks sustainability, in his modus operandi, he sought for one of the best hotel brands in the world—Golden Tulip — signed an MOU with this intercontinental brand, thus removing any bureaucratic incursion for ease and profitable business.

You just need to visit this hotel which is planted majestically on a 14-hectare piece of and the three-storey building has 81 standard rooms and presidential suite, a conference centre, a gym, a spa, an outdoor pool bar, a bush bar and six meeting rooms with lovely swimming pool. Other facilities are clinic and a nine-hole golf course which will soon be upgraded to 18 holes.

Manned by a competent team of thoroughbred professionals under James Ochei General Manager, the hotel has been able to absorb over 200 applicants from the unemployment market while almost all the building articles were sourced locally.

According to Lola Itayemi, a visitor to Anambra, “The only thing that consoled me when my flight was cancelled until the next day was the fact that I was going back to Golden Tulip Hotel and Resort, Agulu Lake Amobia. The blissful experience I had the previous night sweetened my spirit. There hotel has a blissful aura. It is a place where you can consummate your holiday in quietude and serenity.
