Anambra state is growing and we are getting high-rise buildings springing up here and there, we need to develop the capacity to fight fire of that sort. The governor added that he would use the opportunity to meet with members of the Anambra community in New Jersey and update them on happenings back home. This is an opportunity to update them on what we are doing real time, what we have done in the last five years, and what we want to do in the remaining three years. I will preach to them on the need to bring their wealth and investments back home. Wealth is not all about money, it includes your contacts, knowledge, experience and skills, he said.
