There are indications that the former Central Bank Governor (CBN), Prof Charles Soludo, may emerge the consensus candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.
This is coming on the heels of various events taking place in the state as well as a Praise and Worship rally organised in favour of Soludo by twenty four support groups from across the state at the Dora Akunyili Women Development Center over the weekend.
Speaking to journalists after the event, the Managing Director, Anambra State Signage and Advertisement Agency, Chief Jude Emecheta, said that major stakeholders in APGA, have endorsed Soludo as the candidate of the party in the 2021 governorship poll in the state.
He described Soludo as the tallest masquerade in the race, saying that even those in other political parties have confessed to that.
Said Emecheta: “Truth must be said, Soludo has no equal in that race. Tell me the person who has half of Soludo’s pedigree and credentials in the forthcoming guber race. A man that has toured economically across 340 countries in the world.
“He should be allowed to continue the good work of Governor Willie Obiano, come March 17, 2022.
“We are for him; Anambra people are for him. And he is the right and best candidate for Ndi-Anambra irrespective of any placement.
“Anambra must continue to move higher in our choice of governorship candidate. Since 2003, APGA has given the state the best products.
“Mr. Peter Obi started it, and now Willie Obiano. The next will be Soludo. That’s how we will continue to progress in the overall interest of Anambra State.”
In their separate speeches at the rally, the Chairman of one of the group, Youths Earnestly Seek Soludo (YEES), Dr. Nelson Obinna Omenugha and the State Commissioner for Utilities and Water Resources, Engineer Emeka Ezenwanne, noted that the prayer rally was a movement of young men and women who aligned with the ideas and personality of Charles Soludo, and are strongly working towards ensuring his emergence as the next governor of Anambra State.
They explained that the groups’ objective is to ensure that Prof Charles Soludo succeeds Governor Willie Obiano for continuity
