Willie Obiano, Anambra State Governor has shut schools, markets and other private organizations to honour the first President of Nigeria, late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe. In 2019, Obiano declared first public holiday for Zik. He wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari to also declare every November 16 as public holidays for late Zik. Obiano said the government’s failure so far to declare Zik’s birthday as a national holiday has become a national and international scandal. C-Don Adinuba, commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment who spoke for the governor, said all government offices, except those which provide essential services, would not open, just like the private sector and open markets in the state. He said: “The Ghanaians observe President Kwame Nkrumah’s birthday as a national holiday. Angolans observe Dr Agostino Neto’s birthday as a national holiday, just the way Tanzanians do the birthday of Mwalimu Julius Nyerere. “Interestingly, it was Zik who discovered Nkrumah, mentored him, and sent him to Lincoln University in the United States of America (USA). “Zik inspired a generation of Africans, including Nigerians, into African nationalism…” Obiano also said that Azikiwe remained Nigeria’s most detribalised leader in history. “Nigeria is in dire need of transformational leaders like the late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, the symbol of national unity and progress,” he added.
