Kudos as Soludo sets agenda for New Anambra
By John Eche
Loud applause has greeted what observers see as a new determination to build a New Anambra as registered in the inaugural address of the state Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, The Difference reports.
Soludo, a development economist and former Governor of the Central bank of Nigeria, replaced outgoing Governor Willie Obiano in a swearing in ceremony at Awka on Thursday.
Addressing a particularly scaled-down crowd, the new Governor promised to be both visionary and prudent in administering the resources of the state.
Early responses to the inauguration activities and address of the governor were generally positive though some wondered whether some vested interests would not look for ways of scuttling his large ambitions for the state.
