A coalition of Non-Anambra Indigenes Forum in Anambra State has congratulated the governor-elect, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo on his victory at the just concluded governorship election in the state.

Also, an Obosi-based industrialist and founder of Chazmax Pharmaceutical Industries, Chief Gabriel Chibueze, has described Soludo’s victory as “a wonderful dream that has come to reality.”

In a statement yesterday, the coalition made up of people from other parts of Southeast zone and other geopolitical zones resident in Anambra, described Soludo’s election victory as well deserved, adding that it amounts to giving the cap to who it fits. 

According to the statement jointly signed by the Coordinator, Theo Rays; Secretary, Raphael Agu and Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Amechi, “Soludo’s profile and manifesto clearly show that he is okay for the Anambra job.”

The coalition commended Governor Willie Obiano and their Patron, Chief Victor Ikechukwu Anigbata, for motivating them to participate in the election.

While pledging to continue to support the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the state, they called on the governor-elect to protect their interest as Obiano did.

Chibueze, on his part, noted that Anambra people were solid with Soludo, advising him to make road construction one of his priorities.

“Bad road is a major factor militating against economic activities in the state thereby jeopardising the chances of small, medium and large scale industries to grow and create jobs. So, I would like to see him deal with the roads,” he said.
