Group to Soludo: we will support you to better your predecessors
August 18, 2022
The Nigeria Policy Institute United States of America (NPI-USA) yesterday disclosed its preparedness to financially and technologically support infrastructural projects of Anambra State Government.
The group said it would support progressive changes needed for effective and productive governance in the state, as well as support Governor Charles Soludo to better his predecessors’ performances.
In a statement by its Executive Director, Chief Jimmy Asiegbu, the body appealed to the governor to work with diaspora indigenes by setting up accounts where they could donate their widow’s mite.
Praising Soludo’s approach to cultism, kidnapping, killings, drug abuse, among others, NPI-USA said the governor had demonstrated his capacity to fulfil his campaign promises to the people.
It hailed him for cleaning up Okpoko, Awka, Onitsha and its environs, as well as closing tax loopholes and revenue misappropriation.The statement said: “Those campaign promises include turning Anambra into a livable environment, tackling infrastructural decays, road construction, flood and erosion related problems.
“Despite the meager money in the treasury and from the federal allocations, the governor has embarked on these infrastructural projects. There is no question that these projects cost money.
“It is a welcome development that Anambra indigenes in the diaspora are uniting to support Soludo’s projects. We urge other indigenes living abroad to emulate this gesture.
“We also advise the governor to surround himself with good advisers, who will tell him the truth and suggest the best approach to solving the problems of the state.
“NPI-USA has confidence that Soludo will work on exceeding the performance of his predecessors and make Anambra the Dubai of Africa, as he has promised.”
Calling for progressive steps targeted at attracting local and foreign businesses, particularly for job creation for unemployed youths, the group enjoined residents to support Soludo to ensure his success.
