Prof Chukwuma Soludo as part of his formal consultations in response to the demand by Ndi- Anambra for him to contest in the Anambra 2021 governorship election, visited the Anambra State House of Assembly. The visit afforded him and the honourable APGA House Members an opportunity to mutually dialogue on the future of Anambra state as well as the role of APGA, the members, and Prof Soludo in that future. It was a private visit at which Soludo eulogized the performance of APGA government in the state (even under declining revenue); commended members for their support and the stakes for APGA in the next election. He requested for the prayers, advice and guidance of members as he continues consultations before eventually declaring interest for the contest.
Members were excited about the depth of Soludo’s presentation and responses to questions as well as the prospects of his candidacy if he eventually decides to contest. The meeting started with prayers for Soludo and his intentions.
Before Soludo spoke, the only lady of the House and Deputy Chief Whip (Hon Beverly Ifeanyi Nkemdiche) decorated Prof Soludo with customized apron and donated hundreds of face masks with Soludo’s photos as demonstration of support. Members in their contributions and vote of thanks thanked Soludo for the visit and frank discussions; offered prayers for him; and also expressed their expectations when he becomes governor.
