Governor Chukwuma Soludo has been commended for driving his administration with an open door policy and inclusive governance.
The Convener, Anambra Demand for Soludo, Chief Jude Emecheta, gave the commendation while speaking with journalists in Awka.
Chief Emecheta said Governor Soludo’s wide consultations and interactive sessions with stakeholders across the country had provided opportunities for people to make inputs and contributions towards achieving the governor’s vision for the state, as well as encourage Ndị Anambra to take ownership of the state.
He pointed out that the giant strides towards entrenching new sanitation culture for environmental sustainability and courageous approach to restore law and order had demonstrated Soludo’s resolve to deliver his manifesto and justify his mandate.
Chief Emecheta asked the people not to put undue pressure on the governor to avoid distracting him from his vision, noting that the governor had the strength of character to overcome the present challenges confronting the state.
On the forthcoming general elections, he called on eligible voters who had already registered to collect their permanent voter’s cards while those who had not registered should do so, urging political parties and their aspirants to encourage and support their members to obtain their PVCs to enable them to vote during the elections.
He also urged political parties to provide a level playing ground for all aspirants in the primary election by upholding their constitutions and respecting the Electrol Act and election guidelines.
Also speaking, the National Patron and member, Board of Trustees of ADS, Chief Henry Igboeli, said Governor Soludo’s consultations with Ndị Anambra in various parts of the country and visit to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at the detention facility in Abuja had demonstrated his resolve to give everybody a sense of belonging and fight for the welfare of the people, which, he noted, had restored people’s confidence in governance.
Chief Igboeli observed that the Governor was gradually changing the mindset of the people and rebuilding bridges of trust through peace initiatives and dialogue to restore stability, progress and development in Anambra State and the entire Southeast Zone and called on other governors to emulate what he called Soludo’s people oriented administration to bring a new dawn in the region and country.
He called on stakeholders to give the governor all necessary support to deliver his vision for the state.
