Today, Tuesday, June 1, 2021 the journey to a greater and prosperous Anambra State surely has begun as Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR, officially picks the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, nomination and expression of interest forms at the party headquarters in Abuja, the federal capital of Nigeria
Soludo, the leading APGA aspirant had a few days ago told a mammoth crowd of youths numbering more than 5,000 under the auspices of U-AYA and U-AWA, (the largest youths organisation in Anambra State), who held a mega rally led by its founder, Hon Chinedu Obidigwe, Federal House of Representatives Member, to celebrate Governor Willie Obiano’s good governance and equally demand unequivocally that Soludo should succeed him, that he will be in Abuja to pick the forms today.
The significance of today’s solemn event is not lost on the people of Anambra state who had for the past two years through various Support Groups numbering about 30 at the last count, been clamouring and demanding for Soludo to contest the November 6, Anambra governorship election.
As Soludo finally picks the forms today, all speculations have been laid to rest as it is now official that the real Ijele Masquerade has finally entered the arena.
While on consultation tours to all the LGAs and APGA Ward Executives across the the 21 LGAs of Anambra to gauge the mood of the people and solicit their support, Soludo was not only received by thousands of cheering crowds but had slso consistently received their massive support and very high approval ratings
And at every other given day, he had also continously received special endorsements from key political juggernauts and gladiators in the commanding heights of the APGA party.
In a appreciation of the unprecedented support from the people for his candidacy, Soludo has also given a tip of what will form the nucleus of his social contract with his people in his vision that will unveiled soon after the primaries.
Specifically, he has said with all humility, that he will turn Anambra State around for the better by building on the foundations laid by his predecessors especially on the infrastructural ‘pillars’ put in place by the incumbent, Governor Willie Obiano
He envisages Anambra state that will attract the world for business. A place people can live, work, invest and enjoy comfortably without qualms. A one livable city that will accommodation all.
This is the trajectory. The new Anambra in the making!
Soludo is expected to pick the forms at the APGA headquarters in Abuja later this afternoon from 2pm. Please Keep a tap on this page for a blow-by-blow account of the proceedings!
