The immediate past national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has described the victory of Prof. Charles Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the just concluded governorship election in Anambra State as well deserved given his impressive antecedents.

In a statement yesterday made available to the press in Benin by his media aide, Mr. Victor Oshioke, Oshiomhole however noted that now that the election is over, the expectations of Anambra people are understandably high especially because of the governor-elect rich background.

The former governor of Edo State said that the ex-governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has a unique opportunity to raise the bar in politics and governance to meet the aspirations of the Anambra people.

While praying that God gives Soludo good health, better understanding, wisdom, vision, and more courage to build on the foundation laid by his predecessors to take Anambra State to an enviable level, Oshiomhole showered encomiums on Dr. Andy Uba of the APC and Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (APC) for their good showing in the election.

He added: “Democracy thrives best when there is healthy contestation and credible alternatives for the people to choose from. They both provided that choice creditably.’

He continued: “Finally, I congratulate the good people of Anambra State for peacefully expressing their political preferences, thus further deepening democracy in our environment. It is my hope that the choice they freely and collectively made at the polls ultimately translates into a better life for them in the future.”
