My family went into exile for bank consolidation to be achieved - Soludo

A former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof Charles Soludo, has said his family went into exile beacuse of several threats to their lives when he introduced the banking consolidation policy in 2004.

He added that he received 19 written threats to his life following that policy.

Soludo stated this in an interactive session with some journalists in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

Soludo, who is contesting for the Governorship of Anambra State on the platform of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, said a good leader must be adamant and revolutionary when embarking on progressive policies.

He said, “I am a very impatient person to see change happen and I am passionate in anything I focus on.

“At that time, no bank in Nigeria was in the top 1000 banks in the world. If you needed to make an investment of $500m, you had to go through the then 39 banks and it was an impossible task. If you wanted to borrow abroad, there was no bank here to guarantee that.

“So, I came to the realization that if we wanted to build a private sector-driven economy, it was not possible with the rickety ‘mama and papa’ banks, which could not guarantee even N3m loan. We, therefore, needed to pull down the house and rebuild it.

“There was nothing I did not see. I received 19 written threats to my life. Even there were attempts to kidnap my children at Offa in Kwara state. So it was a very brutal revolution. I had to evacuate my family during the banking consolidation because when you want to uproot a system, it is usually a deadly routine.

The Professor of economics said
his quest to govern the state was not for personal enrichment as God had blessed him all round,even before he became 30 years.

He said," I have finished with the world, and I have also done my bit in Nigeria. I now want to help develop my own state. I am not running for this election so I can make money, or so I can enhance my CV. I am in this race to develop my home state.

“If anyone thinks that governance is about going to Abuja to collect money, use part of it to pay workers and use the rest to award contracts, then that person is mistaken. If that is what governance is about, I won’t be in the race because that is something my grandmother can do.

“We are talking about using our contacts all over the world to generate funds that we can use to develop our state at little or no cost to us. It is something I can do.

“We have touched many institutions and they changed, and it is time to touch Anambra. After all the work I have done in various places, I asked myself what else I can do as a sign of gratitude to God, and I said, let God use me as a gift to change Anambra State. That is why I am running for the governorship.

Not even only politicians are evil, even bankers and white collar-job men.

How will this nation move forward with all these evil, corrupt that abound all over?

Imagine them threatening his life and trying to kidnap his family members only because he is trying to do the right thing for our nation to move forward.
Here is a man with a vision.

We believe they are the same kinda people that were rejoicing on the death of one of the greatest women to ever come out of Nigeria (Mrs Dora Akunyili!) cos she was a pain in their dirty as$!!

All they want love is stealing and corrupt way of life.
That is the norm to them.

Nigeria will be great again.

We Rise!

The Battle for who will occupy the Agu Awka will be tough, Anambra is blessed with vast human resources and Technocrats. From Maduka, Val, Ekwunife and then Soludo are all exceptional achievers and professionals. But I will like Soludo to win because of his experience in economics and management. Anambra needs a Governor that will lay a foundation for the globalisation of Anambra.

That reform in the banking sector was actually a major breakthrough.

My Love for Prof Soludo knows no bounds.

Anambra if you like, don't vote for him. This would be your best bet.

Thank you for this seemingly short but weighty comment. Soludo has always had a god-complex and likes to be worshipped. This is what he wants worship though he means well. He wants to be worshipped and set upon a throne as a god. He also isn't after Adam bra in the longterm, he's chasing presidency and needs Anambra as a stepping stone to get there


Despite all this, he revolutionalized the banking sector, we must give him that credit.
