(ASA-World), unveils its minimum benchmark for the next ExecutiveGovernor of Anambra State of Nigeria

Anambra State World-Wide Association World-Wide, (ASA-World), unveils its minimum benchmark for the next Executive Governor of Anambra State of Nigeria.


 In keeping with our tradition as a “think home brother’s keeper philosophy driven indigenes of Ndi-Anambra State in the Diaspora we are taking the stand that having the person of good character that is genuinely driven by the need to uplift the lives of Ndi-Anambra, our home State should be paramount in our Diaspora engagement with the Stakeholder’s agenda.

Anambra State Association World-Wide  ( ASA-World) is the umbrella organization of Ndi Anambra in the Diaspora World-Wide. We are a  “think home brother’s keeper philosophy driven indigenes of Ndi-Anambra State in the Diaspora registered in the United State as a 501(c) 3  charitable designate organization, with membership and affiliates in  Canada, the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, South Africa, Russia, Hong Kong- China, Japan, Ireland, Denmark, Russia, and Anambrarians residing out Anambra but living in Nigeria fondly referred to as Local Diaspora,  Nigeria.

We are a non-politically aligned group.  Nevertheless, as a Stakeholder in the happenings in our home state, we are resolute in vetting and informing the electorates on the need for a person of good right character and the qualification for the highest elected office in our home state.

Our agenda is clear. We believe that education and health are very vital for the Anambrarians as a people; bearing in mind, the current situation in our country and the challenges facing the Igbo nation. We expect the occupant of the Executive Governor of “the light of the nation” to commit and to show leadership in sustainable quality education and healthcare.

We expect the occupant of the highest elected office in our home state to pay attention to the importance of food scarcity among the grassroots and plans to improve agriculture funding within the existing microfinance banks and other financial institutions that offer credits to the agricultural sector. In other words, work to increase the current loan to the maximum amount allowable.

security of lives and properties are paramount to attracting and sustaining business in our home state. As such, we see organizing and maintaining an accountable vigilante police that will adhere to the existing state laws and legislation as important to a stable state.   

Also, Diaspora engagement is an area that many of the Diasporas are very much interested in, and believe that it’s incumbent on them to contribute and to share their knowledge whenever they are called upon. At the moment, ASA-World is engaged in free  Annual Medical Outreach to communities in Anambra State. We need an executive Governor who sees value-added to the Diaspora engagement with the Anambra Stakeholders.


Other areas of interest to the Diaspora Anambrarians are:

Money management: The next Governor must be fiscal responsibility. it’s ok to maintain the balance between being fiscally conservative and socially liberal. In otherwise, must have a basic understanding of the socio-economic relevance of their jobs to the governed.

Free and fair election: The next Executive Governor of Anambra State must be elected through a free and fair election and must have an acute sense of purpose, transparency, and accountability.  in other words, must be legitimately elected based on meritocracy rather than through self-aggrandizement (insinuated by his/her wealth), no godfathers and/or entitlement narrative welcome.

Fairness: Must be ideologically motivated to push for fairness, balance budget, and believe 100% in the rules of the law and respect it, even when it did not favor him/her; meaning expenditures must be equal to revenues. Must govern as the Governor of “Anambra State” not the governor of his hometown or his geographic area.

Understanding of culture: Must understand the balancing act between his roles as a Governor and the responsibilities of our traditional Rulers in meeting the needs of the citizenries

Value-added of the South-South, South-East corridors: Must be conscripted to work in concert with the South-South, South-East Governors and the Federal Government of the day as a strategy in developing the South-South, South-East political corridors.


Environment and Managed growth: Must adopt the principle of managed growth and be mindful that the environment is  paramount to the health and wellness of our people and the future of our human and infrastructural capital and above all;

Rise above the fray definition: Must avoid politics of taunting, insults, and mod sling by political parties, thrown at each other that have no value added to the growth and development of our great state; “the light of the nation”.

By the look at the quality of the declared Aspirants, we appear to be blessed with a pool of quality Aspirants. ASA-World looks excitedly forward in anticipation of working with the legitimately elected Governor by the people of Anambra, through free and fair election on November 6, 2021. Good luck to the Aspirants. May the people’s choice prevail.
