Anambra: Soludo, Cabinet Members Visit Obiano


Anambra: Soludo, Cabinet Members Visit Obiano

The Governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo, has visited his predecessor, Willie Obiano at his Aguleri country home.

Speaking at Obiano’s residence on Monday, Soludo applauded his predecessor for the legacy projects he executed while in office, adding that he has continued from where he stopped.

Soludo also assured Obiano that he would sustain the growth of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state and as the third-biggest political party in the country.

The governor asserted that Anambra and Nigeria need his predecessor’s wealth of knowledge and experience ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He said: “We have come to felicitate with you and this is the way we would like it to be. You led Anambra for eight years which isn’t eight days.

“Anambra and Nigeria need your wealth of knowledge and experience. I will be counting on you and wish we had a college of former governors to guide the incumbents, especially those from APGA.

“APGA has to win everywhere. The first election is in February and the second is in March. We will reconstitute again to give Anambra dividends of democracy because we are progressives.

“I was at the Anambra Airport and sincerely appreciated Chief Obiano for the construction of the edifice. Flying from Anambra to other states is now possible. Indeed, this is a legacy of the APGA government.

“Despite all the constraints, we will make Anambra a shining light because that’s what we are; the light of the nation.”

In his remarks, Obiano solicited the support of the Anambra people for Soludo’s administration, arguing that development could only happen with collective efforts.

He urged the people to trust and believe in the governor, asking them to always offer their advice to him because nobody is perfect.

Naija News reports that Soludo visited Obiano alongside his wife, Nonye, Deputy Governor, Dr. Onyekachukwu Ibezim, and the Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon. Uche Okafor.
