…His infrastructure plan will radically devp Anambra – Industrialist, Okafor


…One-Youth-Two-Skills… game changer in youth employment – Igwe Odiegwu



By Izunna Okafor


PLAUDITS and commendations mark the one-year anniversary of Gov. Chukwuma Soludo in office, today.


While many laud what they call the governor’s ‘aggressive’ development of rural infrastructure, many more commend Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo for his expertise in delivering his novel works that have launched Anambra into a foreseeable future of greatness in socio-economic development.


Others describe the governor’s performance in one year a remarkable stand out, because of how he is taking every sector together, especially areas such as Okpoko Masterplan that were written off by successive administrations irreversibly.


Speaking during an interview yesterday, Chairman of Anambra State Market Amalgamated Traders Association (ASMATA), Chief Humphrey Anwuna said     Gov. Soludo has proved his mettle in living up to his campaign promises.


“Mr. Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has showed that he is a man of his word, because not a few doubted how Anambra State would truly become another model of Dubai, given our limited financial resources.


But like someone in a hurry to deliver, the governor did not wait even one second before rolling up his sleeves and getting down to work.


This time, not working for TV cameras but working where nobody may see for now until Anambra begins to reap their fruits. For instance, only Prof. Soludo has laid genuine effort to forge true partnership with traders in the development agenda of the state to leverage 99 per cent of the state’s finances that are in private for maximum overall benefit.


He has also started designing contemporary markets with contemporary fire protection systems so that visitors from other states and other parts of the world can be proud of our marketplaces apart from putting machineries in place to decongest traffic around markets,” he said.


Also speaking, a frontline industrial chemical manufacturer, Dr. Godwin Okafor said Gov. Soludo has delivered in the area of rural infrastructure more than all his predecessors put together.


According to him, “manufacturers will first benefit as it will help us site more factories in rural areas to help open up places not put into consideration by successive administrations.”


Similarly, the traditional ruler of Abacha, in Idemili North Council of Anambra State, Igwe Godwin Odiegwu said Gov. Soludo has surpassed his predecessors’ achievements by hitting the ground running from the first day, beginning from Okpoko.


Odiegwu stated this in an interview, yesterday.

“We commend the governor for developmental achievements recorded within a short space of time in office, particularly in youth development through one-youth-two-skills initiative. Soludo had toured the state to take stock of places that need urgent attention for infrastructure development and, then, swung into action. That is commendable.


As a community, we reassure the governor of our support, and we urge residents of Anambra to give him maximum support so that he can surpass achievements of his predecessors,” he said.
