Anambra State is the heart of the South Eastern region. It is the center point for various commercial activities and a major economic hub in Nigeria and West Africa. A history of excellence in education, commerce and industry, agriculture, entrepreneurship and human capital development earned it the deserving sobriquet, Light of the Nation.
Anambra State is fortunate to have had a progressive trend in governance and development in the past two decades. Over the years Anambra has provided the enabling environment for wealth creating opportunities. The youths in Anambra have been trained in various entrepreneurship and skill acquisition programmes to produce generations of skilled entrepreneurs in various endeavours.
The need to sustain this trend and harness the economic potentials in Anambra State demands that the next governor of the State must have requisite tact and expertise. Past administrations of Dr. Chris Ngige, Mr. Peter Obi and currently, Gov. Willie Obiano, have contributed immensely to the progressive sustenance of the development trend in Anambra State. It is only right that the next governor should have the capacity to do same.
Having this in mind, it is safe to give Prof. Charles Soludo the opportunity to take the mantle of leadership having known his antecedents. From the time he was recalled from international duties by President Obasanjo and appointed as Chief Economic Adviser and later as the Governor of the CBN, Soludo has been blazing the trail as a renowned economist.
When he was tasked with the repositioning of the Nigerian economy and ensure financial stability, he executed same excellently, efficiently and diligently. He promoted excellence and all round productivity. He shaped the economic structure of the country by giving it a new face which yielded profitable returns. People’s money had value, employment opportunities were created directly and indirectly, and different reforms like the bank consolidation strengthened and stabilized the economy.
Soludo’s contribution in averting what would have been an economic disaster in Nigeria at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, gives further insight on why Anambra State needs a man like him. With such vast knowledge in tackling economic issues and providing solutions, and possessing positive and visionary approaches to programmes and policy formation and implementation, there’s no doubt that Soludo will grow the economy of Anambra State to ensure job creation, wealth creation, infrastructural development and most importantly economic prosperity and stability.
Our collective duty is to support him and vote massively to elect him as governor of Anambra State on November 6, 2021 because he is prepared and committed to take us Towards A Greater Anambra.
