Anambra 2021: Soludo must succeed me, Gov. Obiano vows

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state has vowed to make everything possible for former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Prof Charles Soludo to be installed as his successor.

Obioma gave the assurance when he spoke on Wednesday at the Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport at Umueri after his three-week vacation abroad.

He Governor who landed with a private jet at the airport at exactly by 11.45am and was received by Anambra lawmakers led by Speaker Uche Okafor.

Addressing the crowd that came to welcome him, Obiano said Soludo would be the next Governor, despite the crisis that has rocked his All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) since the primary that produced the former CBN Governor in Awka

It would be recalled that the Independen National Electoral Commission (INEC) had refused to recognise Soludo as the candidate, when it made public the list of political parties and their candidates for the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state.

Instead, the Commission published a factional candidate, Chukwuma Umeoji as the candidate based on a High judgement from Jigawa State.

Obiano described the omission of Soludo’s name on the INEC list as a ‘mistake’, which he said would be corrected soon.

The Governor said: “Prof. Soludo is the next Governor of Anambra State as issues about APGA crisis will be a thing of the past soon”.

He assured of delivery of the Anambra International Airport in record time, saying “I feel fulfilled to have a test of my legacy project- the airport this day.”
