In keeping faith with the Peoples’ Manifesto to continuously engage the people on regular basis , Prof Soludo has met with cross section of Anambra people to intimate them on what he plans to do next.
This is what Soludo told the people ”Today, I interacted with community leaders – women, youths and traditional rulers.
Part of the agenda was firstly, to intimate them with our programs and seek their collaboration in the ongoing fight against criminality. We agreed on the need to reform the laws establishing the town union administration as a way of addressing the various problems plaguing the system.
Anambra has a development trajectory, anchored on the Town Union system as a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for accomplishing any initiative targeted at the people. We are also a Society with a bulge of youthful population, with our very respected Traditional Rulers as the Chief Security Officers of various Communities.
When you have these groups of people under one roof, it is almost taken for granted that every household is represented. This is why we have decided to continue the “Community Choose Your Project” initiative established by my Predecessor. This time, we would ensure greater participation of stakeholders in all communities in this process, and also increase the funding.
As part of our “Regenerative Agricultural” program, we have requested community leaders to liase with their people to provide Lands for the first batch of our Palm Tree revolution. This first batch shall see the distribution of about one million improved palm seedlings, and other economic trees.
Our mandate is of and by the people. We owe them every explanation for all our actions, and to them will our commitment be. Where this is not so, we may as well be relapsing to a fascist regime.
This was a fruitful outing, more of it will come all through the life span of this administration.
God bless us all immensely” Soludo
