|Soludo Advised To Emulate Umahi In Infrastructural Development by polycarp65: 9:48pm On Jan 24, 2022|
Prof. Charlse Soludo, the in-coming Governor of Anambra state has been advised to emulate Engr. Chief David Umahi, Governor of Ebonyi state in infrastructural development.
The advice came from his namesake, Hon Charlse Akpu-Enika, an Anambra indigene who is the Commissioner for Youth Development and Sports in Ebonyi and the Leader of the urban community in the state.
Akpu-Enika while congratulating Soludo once again for his emergence as the next Anambra governor, advised that Soludo should visit Ebonyi for advice and guidance from Umahi, on how to develop Anambra infrastructurally.
"Soludo is expected to pay great attention to the construction of roads, bridges and flyovers which had posed the infrastructural challenges confronting the state.
"Most communities in Anambra are not accessible and despite the efforts of the past and the incumbent governor of the state in that regard, the challenge still persists".
The commissioner said that one area Soludo should pay great attention to, is the construction of flyovers at strategic locations of the state to ensure free human and vehicular movements.
"We expect that Soludo should construct flyovers at Nwagu-Agulu, Ekwulobia, Oye Agu-Abagana, Afor Nkpor, Afor Nnobi junction, Awkuzu junction, Afor Igwe, Nkwo Igboukwu, Amawbia government house Amansea, Eke-abatete, Nkpor, Ogidi and other strategic locations in the state.
"When flyovers are constructed at these junctions and locations, Anambra indigenes would not have their hearts in their mouths when they plan visiting the state especially during festive seasons,".
He noted that Umahi"s advice and guidance would be handy because of the way he executes mega-projects with scarce resources.
"It takes Umahi between six to eight months to construct a flyover at the most moderate rate while the project would rank among the most durable anywhere in the world.
"The govenor has turned Ebonyi into a construction site where work goes on for 24 hours with resultant projects that would transcend ages,"
Akpuenika also charged Soludo to emulate Umahi on empowerment of the people especially the youths to check crime and ensure a peaceful and productive state.
"Umahi is the most youth-friendly governor in the country as youths for instance constitute more than 80 per cent of his cabinet.
"Soludo should also emulate him on accommodating people from various parts of the country as it is being practised in Ebonyi.
"I am a commsissioner in Ebonyi but hail from Anambra and several non-indigenes occupy strategic elective and appointive positions in the state".
The commssioner assured Soludo that Anambra people would continue praying for long life, good health and wisdom upon him to tinker the ship of the state to glory.
"The incoming governor has one of the best credentials around but the onus lies with the resolve and zeal to work for the people like Umahi,"
