Anambra State Governor Willy Obiano has declared that the State made headlines as it became the first state in Nigeria to export vegetables (Ugu and Onugbu) valued at $5million to Europe.
Obiano made the declaration in Abuja at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, while holding an interactive session with the People of Anambra living in the North central part of the country.
He stated that the state is now a socially stable, business-friendly environment attracting both indigenes and foreigners to seek wealth-creating opportunities.
