Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo CFR, Governor of Anambra State, says he’s the first Governor in the state’s history to hire 5000 teachers in his first nine months in office.
He added that his administration is focused on building people and infrastructure because human capital is the foundation of any society, and that he takes health and education seriously.
The Governor made the declaration while inspecting the renovation of the Enugwu Ukwu General Hospital in Njikoka to ensure that it is on schedule and in accordance with the agreed-upon program.
According to Soludo, Enugwu Ukwu is a huge town with four large wards, and the votes cast here are very important in the election results for Njikoka Local Council.
The Governor recalled his relations with ndi Enugwu Ukwu, naming friends such as Peter Onwa, MasterHoldings, Chris Okoye, and the traditional ruler of Enugwu Ukwu.
Explaining that today is his third visit to Enugwu Ukwu, he revealed that the National Election, which took place last week and concerns the country, is over!
He went on to say that the upcoming State House of Assembly election is critical because of the ongoing developments in the state.
“We are currently training and empowering 5000 youths to become future millionaires. This is the spirit of Anambra.
“For all these developments we are doing in the state to continue, ndi Anambra needs to assist us by voting APGA Candidates in the upcoming State House of Assembly election.
“On Saturday, give me Hon. Chidi Ibemeka for Njikoka Constituency 1 House of Assembly. Do this, and I’ll handle the rest.
“I need a caucus with whom I can talk about the future of Enugwu Ukwu and Anambra while the opposition talks about how to create chaos and anarchy,” Soludo said.
It should be noted that some of the roads flagged-off during Mr. Peter Obi’s and my predecessor, Chief Willie Obiano’s tenure as Anambra Governor are still pending today because they were done during the election period to canvass for votes.
Soludo emphasized that all of the roads he has flagged must be completed because he is not the typical politician who makes promises and then breaks them.
He explained that he has made 40-50% down payments to contractors for all of the road projects that have been initiated, as well as a down payment for the ongoing Enugwu General Hospital renovation.
Finally, the Governor reminded them to show up for the National Census Exercise, which would take place after the election.
Earlier, Chief Clem Aguiyi, the TC Chairman of Njikoka, expressed gratitude on behalf of the people of Enugwu Ukwu, saying he admires the Governor because he is one of the few people who embarks on a project and physically inspects it to ensure the reports he receives about the project are accurate.
According to APGA Candidate, Njikoka 1 Constituency, Chidi Ibemeka, Enugwu Ukwu is a peaceful and united community with four wards, and the people have been yearning for a distinguished personality to represent them in the house of Assembly for many years. He described himself as the Governor’s son who served as his Campaign Director, and vowed to work closely with the Governor if elected.
Commissioner for Health, Dr. Afam Obidike, a native of Enugwu Ukwu, said he and his team paid a visit to the Traditional Ruler. Aside from the construction of Enugwu Ukwu General Hospital, he stated that sufficient manpower and equipment will also be available.
He promised that the Enugwu Ukwu General Hospital would be transformed into a Specialist service center, with the addition of four additional doctors, nurses, and pharmacists.
