Soludo’s aide urges diaspora indigenes to invest in Anambra, empower citizens
The Chief of Protocol and Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State, Chinedu Nwoye, has appealed to Anambra indigenes residing outside the state to bring home their investments, to contribute towards developing the state.
Nwoye made the appeal, yesterday, at Nibo, Awka South Council of the state, after receiving an award from a group, Great Akuluno International Friends Club, for his outstanding performance in development of the state.
Fielding questions from newsmen, Nwoye commended the group for its initiative to relocate their investments back to the state, as he encouraged people of the state to emulate them.
He, however, counseled that their target should include how to empower people of the state, and not necessarily to make money. He also commended the group for finding him worthy for the award, assuring of conducive and security friendly environment for their businesses.
Nwoye said: “If you build houses outside the state, that’s individual empowerment, but when you invest your resources in the state, you’re empowering thousands of people.” He noted that many pay taxes on their foreign investments, but don’t pay in Anambra.
