The Vice President-General of Ọhaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Damian Okeke Ogene, has commended Governor Chukwuma Soludo for working towards revolutionizing the system of government and mentorship in Anambra State.

Speaking in Awka, Chief Okeke Ogene expressed satisfaction with the governor’s approach to political appointments and commitment to due process.

Fides reports that Chief Okeke Ogene said the policy of appointing youths to political positions would no doubt end the era of recycling old leaders and denying upcoming generations opportunities to master governance, noting that the youths if well tutored and mentored, would be properly equipped with a wealth of experience that would enable them to effectively and efficiently take over the future leadership of the country.

He noted that this would inculcate the needed discipline and basic principles of selfless service in them, as well as the need to entrench merit and due process in the system.

Chief Okeke Ogene urged those appointed to justify the confidence reposed in them by being dedicated and working hard to learn from the wealth of experience of the governor to inspire other youths.

Also speaking a chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Dr Mike Omenugha, said appointment of youths to positions of responsibility would help build their self confidence in administration and enable them to become role models.

He called on other Southeast governors to emulate Governor Soludo’s approach to governance and to effectively harness the potential of youths to build a better future for the region, as well as bring permanent solution to the challenge of youth restiveness
