The global economy has taken a downward surge. Nations are getting into recessions, with the possibility of others slipping deeper into depression.
Businesses have closed down. And many people are out of job. No country has been spared of this near ‘economic Holocaust” engendered by one single pandemic
The world needs new breed of leaders who can think out of the box. And perhaps, throw the ‘box’ away!
Leaders who have the uncanny gift to see tomorrow. Visionary leaders with a discerning eyes for the future
Leaders who are knowledgeable, imbued with strong character,
swift in thinking and daring in action!
This is where Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo comes in. A man with a legacy of distinctions! A reservoir of knowledge and ideas. Firm, bold and forward-looking!
Prof Charles Soludo has proved from time to time that he is a man with “an eye ahead of time”
His banking consolidation, his setting up of the African Finance Corporation, (AFC) are a few pointers to a great mind that is ahead of its time
Even as he is yet to declare to run for Anambra state governorship election, thousands of Ndi Anambra are already rooting for him.
As at the last counts more than 18 support groups scattered all over the 21 LGAs in the state have queued up behind him.
The support has been massive and unprecedented. It has assumed a dimension never witnessed before in the political history of the state. Soludo himself is in awe and shock with what is going on!
Though, on his part, Soludo has never shied away from responsibilities.
Soludo has quite a lot of plans up his sleeves for Ndi-Anambra.
His vision for Anambra state is large. One of such vision is the Anambra Smart Megacity which is already gaining ground with the people of the state.
Soludo envisages a state of Anambra where things will work. A livable state that will be the safest, secured, happiest and most prosperous in Africa.
The Soludo Promoters Forum (SPF), one of the several groups urging Soludo to run for Anambra state governorship election has been in the fore-front propagating the ‘good news’ about the Anambra Smart Megacity vision of Soludo.
Under the dogged leadership of Joe Anatune ( a propelling, non-stop human engine) and his dynamic team, the group has been educating and enlightening the people in the 21 LGAs of Anambra state of the massive economic benefits accruable from the project that will positively impact their lives
Soludo believes in the vision of one state, one people and one agenda for Ndi-Anambra
In several fora he has had the opportunity to speak, Prof Soludo has always praised the indefatigable business spirit of Anambra people. A people so endowed with great talents and skills.
Soludo has often asserted with so much confidence that “When Ndi-Anambra is organised and mobilised, the people creative-energy knows no bounds”
This is Soludo’s affirmation of his deep belief and unwavering confidence in his people.
His slogans has always been from time past on the need for Ndi-Anambra to come together and collectively build the state
” Collectively let’s put Anambra on the world map by working together as one united family”
He believes everyone has a role to play by making his or her talents and time available towards building a virile and better Anambra state that will accommodate all.
With the new world economy, and the fast dwindling global oil revenues, and the devastating impact of COVID-19 pandemic, a new world order is certainly here with us. We either live with it or perish with it, if we refuse to do the needful.

The 2021 Anambra Governorship election due to hold later in the year is a beacon of hope for Ndi Anambra to redefine history and change the trajectory of the political firmanent in the state.
This, they can achieve, by electing their most distinguished son, Prof Charles Soludo, to lead Anambra state into the new world order
Making this a reality shouldn’t be a difficult task, because the fate of the people is in their hands!
Therefore, Ndi-Anambra must not bungle this great opportunity, let them rise with one voice, one spirit and one purpose by ensuring Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo emerges the governor-elect in a landslide victory come November this year!
This is the best New Year gift the people can give to themselves!
Happy New Year!
