“Peter Obi and I put Gov Willie Obiano as governor of Anambra .”Gov Obiano has worked and put a seal on his achievement by building an international airport for Anambrarians.
“His next job is to put a successor.”On 2nd February 2021, I sent him a mail on who he is endorsing for governor and on 26th Feb, he told me it’s Soludo.
”He did not show me body language but told me it’s prof Soludo and asked me to do my best.”The load is on my head and I called all of you here today to help me carry this load.
“In 2013, Soludo was to be the candidate of APGA.”He came to me and we started and when I found out it was not working out for him based on the meeting I attended, I told him that if we field him, he will not win.
“It pained him but got over it .”In 2017, he came out again, met me but I asked him to allow Obiano to finish his second term and when it dawned on him that Obiano had to go for the second term, he joined the campaign and that’s when he said ..” If it’s not broken, why to mend it”.
“Soludo is a good choice and I thank the governor for making that choice.”We have other aspirants in APGA and I plead they support Soludo.”They have visited me but I still plead they support Soludo.
“Politics Is give and take and we have other elective positions for them.
“Very soon, Federal allocation will stop coming and Ndi Anambra needs such a person like Soludo who is an expert in the developmental economy.
Prof. Soludo has the capacity to work with IMF, World Bank, African finance corporation to get a grant for us without waiting for federal allocation.” Sen. Umeh said.
