Former CBN Gov, Soludo Declares Interest To Succeed Willie Obiano

Published

on

The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Chukwuma Soludo, has declared his intention to run for the governorship of Anambra State in the November 6 poll.

Mr Soludo would be running on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

Declaring his ambition on Thursday in Awka, Mr Soludo said he has been a party man since 2013 and would be a better party man if APGA offered him the governorship ticket.

He promised to achieve victory for the party, hoping to leverage his international connections to transform the state.

He said having served the global community, he was now poised to serve and develop Anambra.

The former CBN governor assessed the performance of Governor Willie Obiano’s administration in Anambra and described the governor as one of the best in the country.

He rated the governor high on infrastructure development and regular payment of workers’ salaries in the face of dwindling finances.

He said Anambra has experienced steady prosperity under APGA.

“I granted an interview where they asked if I still stand by what I said in 2017 that ‘if Anambra is not broken, why mend it’ and I told them that Anambra is more sound now.

“In 2010, the Federal Bureau of Statistics conducted a survey and said the poverty rate in Anambra was 53 per cent.

“In 2020, it conducted another survey and said the poverty rate had gone down to 14.7 per cent, what else can you use to measure good governance?

“Anambra is doing well under Obiano, and my mission is to continue and complete all the legacy projects of the governor,” Mr Soludo said.

Chinedu Obidigwe, a federal lawmaker representing Anambra East and West Federal Constituency, thanked Mr Soludo for accepting the call to join the governorship race and promised to support him.

Mr Obidigwe said Mr Soludo has paid his dues as a party man and a technocrat, and called on APGA to allow him to fly its flag as a sure way to victory.

The event was attended by APGA chieftains in the state, including the state chairman of the party, Nobert Obi.

No one is driving Northerners away from South – Ohanaeze Ndigbo

Published

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has debunked allegations that the northerners in Southeast were given quit notice to vacate the region.

In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary, Chief Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, Ohanaeze said no one was chasing the Northerners from the region.

Ohanaeze warned the Northern and Southern elite to desist from inflammatory statements and activities that could incite ethno-religious violence.

“Leaders must restrain themselves from sharing the wrong narratives and perspectives. No one is driving Northerners away from the South.

“Ohanaeze calls on Northern leaders to join in the call against lawlessness and impunity by the few who do not represent the majority.

“Surely, no upright and well-meaning citizens will dispute the imperative of having law-abiding citizens who pursue their vocations without harming others.

“We declare that our people demand the observance of due process by all groups. We deplore rash and unlawful retaliatory actions,” the statement read.

The group, however, condemned the activities of herdsmen instigating crisis in the region and many other parts of the country.
