Anambra: ‘The Youths Are Angry’ – Ex-IPOB Leader Sends Message To Soludo



Chukwuma Charles Soludo - 2021 Elective Governor of Anambra State

A former deputy leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Uche Mefor, has reacted to the recently concluded governorship election in Anambra State.

In a congratulatory message to the newly elected Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Charles Soludo, Mefor urged the politician to advocate for Igbo youths in his governance.

The former governor of the central bank of Nigeria emerged winner of the 2021 governorship election in Anambra state on Wednesday morning.

Soludo defeated his counterparts from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the Young Progressive Congress (YPP) after he garnered total votes of 112,229 almost double of the candidate behind him.

In a statement on his Facebook page addressed to Soludo, the former IPOB leader said he is hopeful that the new Anambra leader will work hard for the development of the state.

Mefor’s address entitled; ‘THE STAKES ARE HIGH….THE STAMINA REQUIRED FOR THIS GAME MUST BE SUPER ELASTIC’, reads: “Congratulations, Prof.Soludo. This is a well-deserved, expected victory, a victory for the people made possible by the Grace of the Almighty God. You must, therefore, not be carried away when you take over the office.”

“You must consolidate on the existing progress but strive more to serve the people to make a more striking, positive difference and bring a new, progressive paradigm to governance.

“You must redefine how the instrument of the state within your jurisdiction is being managed for the better and leave a lasting legacy that generations will build on.”

The Biafran agitator prayed Soludo to roll out a beautiful economic blueprint for the massive development of the Anambra people.

He added: “Domestically, remember that all the local government areas in the state are your immediate constituencies for massive engagement, development and distribution of wealth. Internationally, attract partners and open up the state for investment and massive development. You must among others look beyond Anambra and be a strong voice and a champion for economic and social justice for the emancipation of our land and our people.”

Mefor reiterated: “The youths are angry and frustrated. Be their advocate. Engage them. Make them productive to improve their welfare and economic future. Needless to say that you are a big masquerade in all these but just a reminder to remain focused”.
