…CBN’s loss, Anambra’s gain – Bishop Kukah
..Gov living up to his cerebral pedigree – Prof Katchy
…Introduction of new benchmarks timely – Chief Simon Okeke
…Indigenous investors ready to partner govt – Igwe L. N. Eze

AS GOVERNOR of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo marks his first 100 days in office today, a cross section of ndi Anambra from all walks of life are commending the governor for using the period to chart new policy frameworks that give him a head start despite challenges

They also laud the governor for upgrading some policies of the previous administration to form part of his new benchmarks and templates of delivering good governance to the people.

Describing Gov. Soludo as “God’s gift to Nigeria which nepotism and tribalism of those with skeletons in their cupboards prevented the country from full exploitation through his far reaching banking reforms during his stint at Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN),” Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Rev. Hassan Kukah said “Nigeria’s loss will turn out a gain for Anambra people.”

Explaining that the last 100 days has rekindled ndi Anambra’s trust in governance, Chairman of Anambra State Chapter of Nigeria Red Cross Society, Prof. Peter Katchy said this was made possible by Gov. Soludo’s demonstration of enthusiasm to rewrite the leadership narrative by initiating policy directions that will quickly restore the people’s confidence.

According to Katchy, the governor achieved this by bringing his cerebral pedigree to bear on governance.

“Call it rocket science or miracle working if you like, but Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo has shown the cerebral difference in governance. He has shown that to do it, you must first draw it. He looks inside when others are looking outside.

That is why he’s expert, a model phenomenon and administrator of global repute. That’s why in just 100 days, the governor has restored the people’s confidence and trust, despite meeting them at their lowest ebb when he took oath of office. We’ll give it to his intellectual acumen and first-class technocrat of global acclaim.

One thing that stands out what the governor has been doing since March 17 is that despite taking the reins in an abnormal time, he refused to be distracted by same dynamics that derailed his predecessors.

This is why in same time,  Prof. Soludo is coming up with innovative economic development frameworks – such as the spade works for the palm revolution and transforming the state into livable and prosperous homeland as well as campaign for clean, healthy environment which he kicked off by personally leading clean up exercise in Okpoko and Onitsha – he has also recaliberated security architecture that is gradually taking back the state from hoodlums and other agents of insecurity.

He is moving Anambra ahead and while saying more kudos, let all support him to help him continue to put things in order, and put Anambra back on her numero uno status in the comity of states in Nigeria,” he said.

Also speaking during an interview, yesterday, elder statesman and former Chairman of Police Service Commission, Chief Simon Okeke said new templates for economic development which the governor is introducing and fine tuning will not only take the state to the next level but also transform Anambra into a prosperous megacity in line with his vision of making the state the Dubai of Africa.

“Gov. Soludo is   on the right path. From what I see, he’s introducing new benchmarks while improving on old ones that have potentials of delivering good governance to the people, especially grassroots. The governor is only performing well ahead of expectations by reaching to reconcile all divides, confronting insecurity frontally, bringing scholarship to bear on governance,” he said.

In his own commendation for the governor, traditional ruler of Abba, in Njikoka Local Government Area and Chairman of Ezenwata Transport Industries, Igwe L. N. Eze said “Prof. Soludo has laid  sufficient foundations that will attract indigenous and foreign investors to partner the state government in making Anambra an industrial hub.”
