Former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, has predicted that the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) would rule Anambra State for fifty years, just as he predicted economic development for the state.
Soludo, who said this during the inauguration of Obiano’s re-election campaign committee in Umunze, Orumba South Local Government Area of Anambra State, added that the development road map of the incumbent governor, Willie Obiano, must be sustained.
“APGA will rule Anambra State for 50 years during which time Anambra would have become one of the best economies in Africa. I can see the indices of modern economic development being put in place by the Obiano government. His agricultural transformation is unique.
“I urge our people to vote for Obiano again so that he can sustain what I’m seeing in this state. After Obiano, I see a continuation of APGA government in this state for up to 50 years because, for the past 11 years, APGA has done marvelously well in this state. I don’t see a change of loyalty soon”, he said.
Speaking also, the former National Chairman of APGA, Victor Umeh, also urged Anambra people to sustain the APGA leadership in the state, even as he expressed optimism that his party would win the November 18 poll in the state.
Governor Obiano, in his remarks, urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that the wish of the people was protected in the election.
