Commentary: Maintaining The Stand Point Of Governor Willie Obiano

No doubt, Chief Sir Willie Obiano is finishing strong as “Governor of Projects”. That flight started landing today at the Anambra International Cargo & Passenger Airport Umueri is a bequeathing Christmas gift to Ndi Anambra by Obiano. Already, the Awka FIFA standard stadium will likely host some matches before the year runs out while Akpokuedike had assured that the Governor-Elect would be sworn in at the International Convention Centre Awka. This outstanding legacy is exemplary.

However, Governor Obiano and Ndi Anambra have made a right choice in Professor C.C Soludo. The Truth is that Professor Soludo was destined for this great moment. Not just for his consistent political engagements in Anambra State which dates back to 2010. No! The erstwhile governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria was designed right from birth to surpass these expectations, break barriers, more barriers and earn a place in the heart of history.

The journey to this grand stage could have, of course, been a deliberate ambition, but the pre-political circumstances that gave birth to Charlie Nwa Mgbafor’s surge would stick lastingly on the template of grace.

And on Thursday, March 17, 2022, when Professor Chukwuma Soludo shall be officially sworn-in as the seventh civilian governor of Anambra State, a new political chapter would have begun, and Ndi Anambra, both at home and in the diaspora, would be jostling for the front row of the spectators’ stand to witness the grand kick off of the journey to a greater Anambra State, real time.

With Professor Soludo come immense expectations. The Dubai -Taiwan mantra, which cast drools and fantasies and held the audience spell-bound, is still very much potent and new on the mind of everyone. Now is the time! And as one of Nigeria’s most enlightened critics, Ndi Anambra expect the governor-elect to bring instant change. Just as they want immediate results in the infrastructural rating of the state, same way they expect to be heard as a voice in good governance.

Having successfully convinced majority of the electorate that Soludo is the go-to guru in economic management and fiscal intelligence, his political party, the great, dogged and noble All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has directly reassured Anambra people of a sound economic standing with maximum investment and development returns. Consequently, Ndi Anambra have had their appetite caressed and look forward to something not a bit less than the best.

Again, Professor Soludo’s highly-rated public career, which formed one of his major campaign strength, would be expected to be repeated, this time on a larger scale. His exceptional knowledge of national and international socio-economic and political terrains, intelligence, man-management, achieving more with little, fearless decision-taking skills and word craft would do well to up the overall status of Anambra State.

Also, with the rising ethnic and sectional tensions in South Eastern Nigeria, and considering the now-accepted fact that Anambra State is the heartbeat of Igbo land, most concerned observers are keen to assess Professor Soludo’s body language and rhetorics.

In Professor Soludo, Governor Obiano and ndi Anambra saw the best hand to ride miles farther from where Obiano would drop the wheels on March 17, 2021. Akpokuedike and the electorate have entrusted a large chunk of their hope to one of the best intellectuals ever produced by Anambra State, nay Nigeria and Africa. As the prodding axiom rightly concludes that “with great power comes great responsibility”, the sixty-one-year-old globally-revered economist must not let Ndi Anambra down. And those who know him too well would echo, no he wouldn’t!
