Soludo applauded for choice of transition committee members
The Anambra Civil Society Network (ACSONET) has commended Anambra Governor-elect, Prof. Charles Soludo, over his choice of members of the transition committee.
Specifically, the group commended Soludo for appointing Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili as chairman of the committee and inclusion of professors Chidi Odinkalu and Pat Utomi, among 77 other technocrats, who have distinguished themselves in their chosen careers.
In a statement issued by its Chairman, Prince Chris Azor, yesterday, it expressed the hope that they would deliver to ensure smooth swearing in of Soludo, who takes over the affairs of Anambra State from Willie Obiano on March 17, 2022.
It described Soludo’s move as: “Spot-on and a sign of good things to come from the erudite scholar and former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).”
Azor, who is also the Civil Society Co-Chair, Open Government Partnership (OGP), said the appointment reflected: “Inclusion, non-partsanship, competence, integrity and liberalism.”
While commending Obiano for giving Soludo necessary cooperation so far, he expressed optimism that the inauguration of the committee members and the first plenary sessions scheduled for between January 19 and 22, 2022, would be guided by their terms of reference.
