Truly, we gathered and mobilized forces and worked with the other stakeholders for the emergence of Soludo as the governor of Anambra state.

On resumption of office, Soludo appointed our chairman, Chinedu Nwoye Glamour (Convener/National Coordinator of Soludo Support Group(SSG) and the chairman, ALL SOLUDO SUPPORT GROUPS (ASSG) as the State Chief of Protocol and Deputy Chief of Staff,

same day he also appointed Chukwudi Okoli as the Accountant General of the State, member Anambra Demand Soludo (ADS)

As at Today, Soludo has appointed all the first 7 support groups Conveners into political offices

In less than two months in office, he appointed some of us as Commissioners and Special Advisers. Subsequently, he appointed fifteen of us as the Transition Chairmen in various local government areas.

Within the twelve months in the office, Soludo has appointed some of our members as SSAs, SAs,  EAs  and members of various state boards.

On the aspect of development, Mr Governor has flagged off and completed some roads while road constructions are ongoing in every local government areas.

Soludo has employed five thousands (5000) teachers ( of which some reasonable number are our members or their relatives are among the beneficiaries). Also, more than three hundred (300) health workers had been employed ( Support Groups members inclusive).

About five thousand (5000) youths are currently undergoing skills acquisition under the scheme of, “one youth, two skills “ project.

80% of them are members of various support groups. Soludo is less than one year in office with over four hundred (400 ) political appointees, 50% of the political appointees are members of various Support Groups.

I believe that before the end of his first tenure, more one thousand (1000) persons will be on political appointments once there are vacancies.

There is urgent need for us to come together and brainstorm like the biblical sons of Issachar who understand the time and season of what the Israelites should be doing.

Also, we need to ask ; did we support and voted Soludo so as to be given political appointments or to develop Anambra state?

Daalu nu.
