Akpo PG commends ndi Anambra for smooth transition of power
PRESIDENT General, Akpo Development Association (ADA), Mr. Henry C. Dim has commended ndi Anambra for the smooth transition of governance.
He expressed optimism that the new governor, Charles Soludo, would perform creditably on his mandate.
“The governor’s inaugural speech and performance so far show that Anambra State is in good hands.
“The clamour for reduction in cost of governance at all levels of governance in Nigeria is common, yet not much has been achieved in that regard.”
The PG made these observations while interacting with information officers at his residence in Ogbo Village, Akpo.
According to him, Gov. Soludo has told ndi Anambra that even a dime of Anambra State Government was not to be spent on his inauguration ceremony.
“This is a good start; it means he is working towards reducing the cost of governance in Anambra State. He is indeed a good economist.
“This action of his is worthy of emulation to other tiers of government, especially now that Nigeria’s economy is not smiling.
“The governor’s action of moving from inaugural arena to the office to start work is another good step in the right direction.”
He added that Gov. Soludo’s action showed that he was prepared for the job before applying for it.
Mr. Dim enjoined ndi Anambra to give the governor maximum support.
He pleaded with politicians not to mix politics with governance.
“The era of who will take over from Obiano has gone. The page at which we are now is; how will Anambra State move forward?
“To achieve this goal, all hands have to be on deck; the interest of Anambra State first before any other personal interest.”
Mr. Dim, who expressed regrets at the ugly incident that happened at the inauguration arena noted that, “conflict is synonymous with human existence” and urged the parties involved to settle their scores amicably.
He, then, pleaded with the new administration to prioritise security, even as he urged it to declare a state of emergency on the dilapidated roads, especially those in the rural communities.
