Ezira community ready to return Gov Soludo for 2nd tenure

People of Ezira community in Orumba South Local Government Area of Anambra State have commended Governor Charles Soludo for massive infrastructural development he had brought to the area since he assumed office two years ago.

They promised to reciprocate the benevolence by voting massively for him to ensure his second term dream was actualized.

Speaking during the last Ofala festival of the late traditional ruler, Igwe Samuel Okechukwu Uche, President General of the community, Chief Nnanyelugo Akam recalled how the community was apparently abandoned by previous administrations before Soludo came on board.

He said: “Before Gov Soludo’s emergence, we were abandoned in the bush, but since he took over, there has been massive road network, security, healthcare, youth employment, among other dividends of democracy.

“I’m assuring him that Ezira as a community will massively vote for him come 2025 for the second term to ensure sustainability of the good work he’s doing for us.”

While pledging commitment of the season to peaceful monarchical transition following monarch’s death, Akam said contrary to what is obtainable in some communities in the state where replacement of monarchs is characterised by violence and bloodsheds, theirs would witness a crisis-free transition.

“From tomorrow, the mourning begins and for the next one year, we’ll be scouting for the next Igwe. In the interim, I’ll be acting on dual capacity to ensure there’s peace and tranquility.

“I’ll ensure all government projects reaches all the nooks and crannies of the community. I’ll also ensure security in area is not compromised.

“As a committed Christian, I believe God that through prayers, we’ll have a peaceful transition which is rotatory. I’m optimistic God will give us the Joshua of our time,” he added.

Also speaking, Palace Secretary, Ichie Edmond Nwafor described the late monarch as great man who would be largely missed both by his community and his colleagues.

“We’ll not only ensure the legacy he left behind is not sustained, but be built upon for a better Ezira. We also expect more support from government,” he added.

On his part, Governor Soludo commended the people of the community for their peaceful coexistence, assuring them of more dividends of democracy.

Soludo, represented by the Chief of Staff, Earnest Ezeajughi urged youths in the community to take advantage of the “One Youth Two Skills” initiative of the government to better their lots and reduce restiveness in the area.

The occasion attracted several dignitaries including traditional rulers from Orumba North and South, Members of House of Assembly including member representing Orumba South, Hon Nwafor Emmanuel Obinna and his Orumba North counterpart, Hon Paul Chukwuka, Chairmen of Local Government Areas, APGA leadership, among others.
