The Nigerian Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, has described the winner of Anambra State Governorship election, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), as an excellent choice.
In a congratulatory message from his Media Office on thursday in Abuja and made available to the press in Onitsha, the Minister said Soludo’s victory was well deserved.
Dr. Ngige said he always knew that the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) would someday govern the State.
The statement partly reads: “Ndi-Anambra have spoken with this resounding victory. Having contested in 2010 with Soludo, who was then the PDP candidate and myself in ACN; an election in which I was ‘awarded’ the second position even though I won outright and Soludo third, I knew that with his tenacity of purpose and drive, he would one day make it to the seat of the Governor of Anambra State Ngige said.
“He continued,Much has been given hence the expectation is very high. Knowing Soludo as I do, however, I have no doubt that our people have made an excellent choice by voting him.”
