“We are averse and vocal against lackluster leadership of in any South East state, we are hopeful that Prof. Soludo, will use Anambra State to set example of what good governance is all about, for other incoming governors of South East, to emulate.

“With him on board, the next crop of governors that will be elected in South East, will be unbeatable and unmatchable in Nigeria, and so we urged him to use his wealth of experience as he did in CBN with reforms that stabilized Nigerian banks, to change the state and take it to another level for others that will be elected governors in South East to emulate.

“We also urge him to be magnanimous in victory and ensure an inclusive government that will have zero tolerance for religious politics and discrimination which have been witnessed in successive governments and is almost destroying the state.

“We expect him to ensure equity and fairness in allocation of positions and appointments. Party politics has come and gone, this is the time to appreciate, embrace and built the state for grater height, there is very serious need to bring his opponents together and make them part of his administration.

“Your election should not be winner take all, where there is need to embark on peace making you should not fail to do so. We therefore, urge all the contestants in the keenly contested election not to fail to accept the hand of fellowship which we know Soludo, will not fail to offer you.
