Soludo’s prioritisation of security, youth education, notable – Ezembaji



A FRONTLINE industrialist and Chairman/CEO, Lake Petroleum Ltd, C. U. Ezembaji has described the health programme launched by the Soludo-led administration, ‘Solution Know Your as unprecedented and a great feat in the health sector .

  Speaking exclusively to National Light on what the programme implies and its significance to ndi Anambra, Chief Ezembaji explained that “Solution Know Your Number” refers to two health challenges, two diseases that are both terminal in nature: diabetes and high blood pressure.

  Observing that  in Anambra State alone, the illnesses claim over 200 lives monthly, he  added  that those at the grassroots, parents, farmers, market men and women die of the disease often not only because it has no cure but because these category don’t know how to manage it.

  “It’s pertinent to know that with good management of diabetes, you live your normal life and it is here that Governor Soludo’s health programme which I term ‘Wonder Solution Know Your Numbers ‘ comes in and plays vital role of saving hundreds of lives annually in Anambra. Patients of this deadly terminal sickness go to any general hospital in the state to get free medical treatment and to ensure this programme succeeds, 27 health personnel were employed by his government and posted to these hospitals to offer helping hands.

He further, identified high blood pressure as another terminal disease; silent killer which is as dangerous as diabetes, adding that many die of the disease both in advanced and in developing countries and it is not curable.

According to him, “under ‘Solution Know Your Number’, patients are treated also free in our general hospitals. Their numbers are checked, measured free of charge and drugs also dispensed to them free. In the same vein, they receive medical advice free…”

  “To buttress the importance of human capital, Governor Soludoorganised and hosted a South-East Conference on human capital development in Awka. Again he announced that 10,000 youths will be trained on digital skills. When this training is completed, youth employment will receive a great boost in the state. The priority of this administration is security and law and order. This is so because all sectors are anchored on security and we’ve seen how relentlessly he’s working to restore peace to the state. To grow the state economy, the Soludo administration is sharing sustainable poverty alleviation strategy which includes coconut and palm oil seedlings. Poor families with 20 of these will be out of poverty within three to four years when these trees begin to grow. In the administration’s road construction programme, most of the roads are Q and A which stands for quality and assurance, according to the Works Commissioner, IfeanyiOkoma.

  “While flagging off IgweEzechi road at Dunukofia, the governor projected the siting of an Export Emporium within the town as part of his government plans to grow the state economy. In fact, this government is working round the clock to deliver on its mandate of enthroning Anambra as an alpha state, a world class state. Recall how the governor promised to intervene in the local governments of Anambra West, Anambra North and Ogbaru, which have the worst roads and how work has since commenced there. In all his acts of governance, we see his administration is working the talk. With his committees and boards and the caliber of members, Governor Soludo is successfully creating the enabling environment to boost investment confidence in Anambra State.
