Governor Willie Obiano says the flag bearer of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Prof. Chukwuma Soludo will govern the state better than he has done.
Governor Obiano said Prof. Soludo acquired wealth of knowledge and experience as a former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and would deploy such to boost the economy of the state.
The governor said this during his meeting with the traditional rulers in the state, at the Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre, Awka.
He commended the traditional rulers for their cooperation throughout his administration, urging them to maintain and extend such cooperation to the incoming governor, Prof. Soludo.
“Under my administration, I have continued to provide logistics and ensured improvements on the welfare of traditional rulers.
“In the past 15 years, APGA Government has provided dividends of democracy to the people of the state. Gov. Peter Obi under APGA did well and my administration accomplished more than his administration, but Soludo will improve on our performance, `will be the best’.
“Soludo managed the Nigerian economy as CBN governor and he will deploy such knowledge in managing Anambra State’s economy.
“He has the exposure and global contacts to attract more investment and development to the state,’’ the Governor stressed.
The Governor noted that in spite of the economic crunch and COVID-19 lockdown, his administration was able to construct an international airport, International Conference Centre, Stadium and other facilities.
He promised to continue restoring pride of place of the Traditional Institution of the state.
The APGA flag bearer, Prof Chukwuma Soludo commended the lofty development strategies, that the used by the Governor to execute projects shot the state into the limelight.
He promised to improve on the welfare of Traditional Rulers and called for a solid alliance with them to achieve victory on Nov. 6.
Prof Soludo recalled that he created not less than 12,000 job opportunities for Nigerians, and had finalised plans to create not less than 130,000 jobs a year.
The senator who represented Anambra Central at the National Assembly, Sen. Victor Umeh noted that the Anambra Airport would continue to be an outstanding legacy of Obiano administration.
Sen. Umeh noted that Soludo would be the solution to the state’s challenges.
