He has assured Ndi Anambra that he will take Anambra to the world and bring the world to Anambra. How?
He will turn the state into one state mega city that is livable and holistically developed to ensure that security, prosperity and happiness are guaranteed for the people. Therefore, the world will come to invest, live, work and relax in Anambra state.
Now the minds of Ndi Anambra have been stretched. Social Scientists will tell you that once the mind is stretched, it will never be the same again. Ndi Anambra are enthusiastically looking forward to the Soludo’ s promise land.
Today, he is their most popular, trusted and preferred candidate for the Governorship election coming up on November 6, 2021.
This, too is his cross.
Convinced that he will deliver on his promise as he did in the past in similar global and national assignments, the people are putting in everything- their time, talents and treasures into the project to ensure it comes to fruition. It has never happened before but as we say in marketing, the passionate believers in the Soludo Solution brand are breaking the category paradigm.
Like a hurricane, Soludo stares you in the face everywhere as the hope that Anambra can build on and consolidate the stellar legacy projects of Governor Willie Obiano who too, has not hidden his wish to hand over the baton of leadership to him.
Alas,Friday July 16 was the day INEC and political hawks in the state sought to test the resolve of Ndi Anambra on the Soludo for governor project. Buoyed by Jigawa state high court judgement procured by the enemies of Ndigbo, INEC did the unthinkable. They placed the name of someone who was adjudged unfit to run for governor by the APGA governorship screening committee in place of Soludo.
Earlier, a so- called charge of non disclosure of the purchase of London residence was roped around his neck ostensibly to paint him black and deny him public sympathy. All the dubious machinations failed .
Instead,the world was thrown into shock. Nigeria and Anambra were in shock and disbelief. INEC has by this singular action murdered sleep. We thank God that the outpourings of emotions did not turn riotous as Prof Jason Nwankwo and Charles Okigbo hinted in their letter of solidarity from their USA base.
We reproduce the submissions of the duo which succinctly portray the mood of majority of Ndi Anambra and Ndigbo across the globe. “The news of reinstating Prof. Soludo to the list of candidates contesting the Anambra governorship election has made our day. It could have been riotous situation if Prof. Soludo was manipulated out of the Anambra electoral process.
The Anambra intellectuals in diaspora were already mobilizing for action. We thank Onwa Na Awa, Joe Anatune, from Soludo’s media office who asked for calmness in the face of the insult to Anambra people. We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure that the popular candidate, Prof Soludo, the people’s choice, wins the election.
The Anambra intellectuals in diaspora hereby advise Edozie Njoku, Jude Okeke and Chukwuma Umeoji to join hands with us to elect Prof. SOLUDO to the governorship of Anambra State.
Professors Jason C. Nwankwo and Charles Okigbo.”
Finally Soludo is a good man with multitudes of brand believers who are ready to defend and stand with him. The Umeojis and their co-travellers should realise they are wasting precious time and resources trying to work against the people’s Choice.
Be of good cheer
Joe C Anatune.
