•Anambra State Governor-elect, Prof. Soludo



With less than 60 days to the swearing-in of the Governor-elect of Anambra State, Prof Charles Soludo, indications are that the old ways of selecting cabinet members may be thrown to the garbage bin for a new order.

News Express gathered that the new order include writing of application with attached curriculum vitae and certificates, as well as facing a panel of judges for oral and written interviews.

This is against the old order of picking cabinet members through recommendations by those close to the new governor and power brokers in the society who may have played a huge role in ensuring the candidate’s victory.

This is coming on the heels of increasing pressure to enlarge the number of the Transition Committee from the present 80 members to about 90 given the short time they have to complete their assignment.

Disclosing this in Awka, the Coordinator, Anambra Leadership Forum, Mr Samuel Ejimofor, stressed that visitors to Soludo”s country home Isuofia, Aguata Local Government Area of the state, have been advised to discontinue frequenting the area but, rather prepare their CVs and wait after the swearing in ceremony when the panel would be set up.

The Coordinator, who was part of the team that worked for the victory of Soludo, said: “People should not be in a hurry and the old system of someone introducing their relations and imposing the people on the governor and forcing it down his throat has gone.

“As for the Transition Committee their time is short considering the TOR, so those who think that the number is too large do not seem to know the enormity of work that was before them as well as the pressure for the number to be increased to about ninety or there about.

“When they go into sub committees you will discover that some ministries and parastatals may not have committees to receive the hand over notes and files and I must commend Soludo for assembling these people.

“Soludo has set the tone for a possible regional harmony that will ignite the glorious days of eastern prosperity wherein the best of Igbo human capital are deployed to solve our collective problems.

“What is exciting about this list is its likelihood of promoting and protecting the common good devoid of political cleavages. It is for me, and many other observers, a list of renaissant leadership that will reposition southeast politics for the good of all.

“Demographically and psychographically, the list is all encompassing. It has further provided Ndị Anambra interesting insights into the fertile mind of a Soludo who is beginning to show promise and prove his mettle as a globally reputed Economist and Development Expert par excellence,”
