Ahead of the 2025 Anambra State governorship election, members of the former chairmen and women leaders forum of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Anambra State chapter, have applauded Governor Charles Soludo’s campaign bid.
The forum members drawn from nine wards of Awka constituency 1, described Soludo’s developmental giant stride within the short period in his office as their motivation to drum up support for him.
The group made the disclosure when it paid a solidarity visit to the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Awka Capital Territory Development Authority, Hon Ossy Onuko, in his office in Awka.
The coordinator, Ikechukwu Anene, who was the former Chairman APGA, Awka Ward 6 and the current Deputy Chairman of Awka South Local Government Council, Soludo has transformed Awka into a world-class capital city through his human-oriented and infrastructural development revolutions in the state.
He disclosed that the forum was created to ensure that no stone is left unturned in support of the governor, stressing that as the former leaders of the party at the grassroots, they have enormous experience and willpower required to guarantee APGA’s victory in all elections.
Meanwhile, the first female ward chairman in Awka South, Mrs. Bridget Okeke, who was the former Chairman of Umuokpu ward 7, hinted that Governor Soludo has made the election a lot easier for party faithful by the good works he’s doing across the state. She appreciated Soludo for appointing a young and vibrant son of Awka, Hon. Ossy Onuko, to be part of his development agenda for Awka capital city. According to her, Awka has never had it this good in many years of its existence as the capital city of the state.
She said, “Today, Awka has good roads, dual carriageways and lots of heavy infrastructural developments like the world-class recreation center and new Government House ongoing. We are happy that shanties and street trading are being fought fiercely in the city. When you drive through Awka, you feel a lot different now.”
Alex Chinwuko, the former Chairman of Awka Ward 5, in his reaction, stated that for Soludo to remember the inner city of Awka and rescue them from the menace of flooding, they will be eternally grateful and indebted to him.
