The Governor of Anambra State, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, has commiserated with the family of Chinwoke Mbadinuju, former executive governor of the state, who passed on, April 11, 2023, at the age of 78.
A press statement signed by the press secretary to Gov Soludo, Mr Chris Aburime, said the demise of the former governor was announced by his son, Cheta Chinwoke Mbadinuju, on behalf of the family.
The statement read, ‘The late Mbadinuju was the former Governor of Anambra State from May 1999 to 29 May, 2003. He was elected Governor on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party.
‘Governor Soludo who had consoled the family also sympathised with the Uli Community in Ihiala Council Area, as well as the entire People of Anambra State, for the loss.
‘The Governor notes that the late ‘Odera’ will be fondly remembered for passing a law that created the Anambra Vigilante Services, establishing Anambra State University, Uli, among other legacy projects.
‘Governor Soludo asked the family to ensure his good legacies are sustained while praying that the Almighty God grant his soul eternal rest.’
