Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo, Governor of Anambra State, has urged ndi Orumba to vote massively for all APGA candidates.
He made the announcement during the Orumba South mini-rally, which was held at Orumba South Local Government Secretariat in Umunze.
Among candidates from other political parties, the Governor explained that he requires a team with whom he can easily collaborate with in order to bring rapid development to Orumba South Local Council.
He expressed confidence that the people would vote for APGA candidates because Anambra is APGA territory and APGA has never lost in Orumba South. The Governor insisted that APGA would not lose in Orumba during his tenure.
While stating that his primary purpose is to inspect the ongoing road construction from Akpu to Ufuma via Nawfija to Ogbunka, he claims that it is not progressing at the expected rate.
He also stated that he came to flag off road construction from Ezira to Umuomaku via Enugu Umuonya to Achina. He promised to return to assess the road’s completion rate.
Soludo added that the heavy traffic from Nkwo to Umunze will be reduced, and that the quick solution is that there will be no need to follow Nkwo to ply through Nawfija to Ogbunka.
While reminding the people that he has not yet completed his first year in office, he has completed over 265 kilometers of road construction in the state.
He informed the Contractor that the road now resembles his skin color. He stated that if he returns and the road looks like his own skin color, he will be convinced of the road’s completion rate.
Soludo told the crowd that ndi Anambra is now taking responsibility and inspecting the roads.
He told a story about a Catholic Bishop who went on a two-day road inspection with his measuring tape from Amansea to Ufuma, and then inspected the road from Amansea to Awba Ofemmili on the second day. He stated that both roads are more than 50 kilometers long.
The Governor informed Orumba South Traditional Rulers in particular that the political party bringing the road infrastructure development is APGA.
He told them that they have a significant role to play in ensuring that the 18 wards in Orumba South vote APGA in the upcoming election.
Earlier, the TC Chairman of Orumba South, Prince Neville Uchendu, thanked the Governor and the entire solution team for their presence. He thanked the Governor for the road projects he has started in Orumba and stated that the campaign for all APGA candidates in Orumba has been cleared.
APGA Candidate, Orumba South Constituency, Anambra House of Assembly, Hon. Emma Nwafor Ntu Japan, APGA Candidate, Orumba North and South Federal Constituency, Sir Eric Kanayo Eze, APGA Candidate, Anambra South Senatorial District, Chris Azubogu thanked the Governor for making them proud and assured they will assist him towards making Anambra a liveable and prosperous homeland.
