He said: “When I came in as governor in 2014, I read out a speech to you, promising to take the State to a greater height.

“Today, I can tell you that I have touched a dream, and I leave history to be the judge, and I’m sure I will be judged kindly.”

Meanwhile, as Prof Chukwuma Soludo prepares to take the oath of office on Thursday, Obiano, on Tuesday evening, showed him around the Government House, acquainting him with the various offices.


“I wish you well, and we will support you, to help you succeed,” Obiano told the incoming governor after the short tour of facilities in the seat of power.
