In Less Than Two Years, Over 1,600 Kids Born Monthly In Anambra – Says Soludo


The Governor of Anambra State, Prof Charles Soludo, has said that in less than two years the birthrate in the State has increased from 200 to 1,600.

Governor Soludo disclosed this at the 65th birthday ceremony of Sir Emeka Offor in Oraifite in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of the State at the weekend.

He said when he assumed office as the Governor, “the total birth rate per month was 200, but today it has gone up to 1,600 birth rate with zero mortality.”

The Governor said this was due to the investment the State government had made in the health sector.

Prof. Soludo commended Sir Offor for living an impactful life and reaching out to the poor and widows.

Speaking at the ceremony, Sir Offor thanked friends and well-wishers for celebrating with him on his 65th birthday.

He promised to spend the rest of his life in the service of God and humanity.
