Anambra: Soludo Will Surpass My Achievements, Obiano Pledges

Blank NEWS Online (NIGERIA) –From Sunny A. DAVID In Awka:

The outgoing Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has urged the people of the State to give total support to the incoming administration of Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo.

He stated this when he joined the Metropolitan Archbishop of Onitsha, Most Reverend Valerian Okeke at his pastoral visit to St. Dominic Parish Agaja, Abatete.

Governor Obiano who said that March 17th, 2022 is sacrosanct, thanked Ndi Abatete for mobilising their votes for the All Progressives Grand Alliance in the last election, expressing optimism that his successor will perform better than he did, reminding the people that it would be far-fetched without their support.

In his homily, Archbishop Okeke said the faith in God is the motivation that drives Christians to pray consistently for their needs, pointing out that faith in God shows the limitations of human power and the omnipotent powers of the divine, as God is all-powerful and all-loving to shower His faithful with favours when they pray to Him.

Our correspondent reports that some members of the Anambra State Executive Council were part of the mass.

Meanwhile, the National Co-ordinator of the All Progressives Grand Alliance Media Warriors, Mr. Chinedu Obigwe, has asked the public to disregard media reports that one Uzu, an aide to Governor Willie Obiano, has the backing of the Governor in his purported ambition to vie for the Senatorial seat of Anambra Central on the platform of APGA in the 2023 general elections.

Mr. Obigwe in a statement on Monday described any claims in that respect as the joke of the millennium.

“What I will add is that the insinuation that Governor Obiano is backing the yet to be confirmed aspiration of Uzu to Battle Umeh over APGA Senatorial ticket is a complete falsehood.

“If he is contesting for Senate, he is doing that on his own and should not leverage on Obiano’s goodwill by insinuating that he has the backing of our 1 and only humane Governor in Nigeria.

“If he has any goodwill, he should deploy it in pursuit of such ambition. The truth for now is that it is still a rumour but when he officially makes it known to the general public, I will say more.

“For now, I can say that Governor Obiano’s main interest is to complete his remaining legacy projects and handover to Prof. Soludo on March 17th.

“I will not also shy away from saying that the Governor favoured those that worked with him in such a way that they should be contented with how God used him to bless them.

“The good people of Anambra Central will make a wise decision in the forthcoming 2023 general election,” the statement stated.
