Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano has said that his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) will reduce the price of rice to N9000 if elected to head the Federal Government.

Obiano made the statement during the inauguration of the ‘Governor Willie Obiano Support Group’ on Monday, September 19 in Awka, Punch reports

“Anambra is a case study for good governance. If APGA will be given the opportunity to rule Nigeria a bag of rice will reduce N9,000,” Obiano said through his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Chinedu Obidigwe.

“What Anambra has done in agriculture, which resulted in the state having its own brand of rice (Anambra rice) would be replicated at a bigger scale should APGA win the presidential election.

“The state has used scarce resources to resuscitate the state’s economy, leading to infrastructural development and timely payment of workers’ salary,” he added.
