Anambra Will Partner You For Developments, Soludo Tells Tinubu

Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo has congratulated President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress APC for being victorious during the last presidential election in the country.

While congratulating the APC winner Tuesday in his statement in Awka, Soludo advised his opponents who lost the election to approach the Court, if they feel aggrieved. 

But he pledged to partner with Tinubu for more developments in Anambra State, adding that Nigeria needed healing and restructuring.

However, he commended the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, security agencies for the peaceful 2023 general elections, especially, the citizens for being what he described as the real ‘heroes ‘ of democracy

“To me, the true heroes of the last elections are the citizens of Nigeria, especially the youths, whose voices will continue to be critical as we collectively strive to build a new Nigeria.

” Nigeria is the winner, and I am confident that a better future lies ahead of us. Congratulations to all Nigerians!

“Let me also congratulate the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his election. We congratulate your closest opponents for their courageous and impressive outing. 

“Nigeria needs healing and restructuring, and the fundamental challenges of insecurity and the economy remain humongous.

” We pledge to collaborate and partner with you and the Federal Government for the development of Anambra state and Nigeria. 

” One critical issue that we must draw your urgent attention is the issue of systemic insecurity in the South East. 

“While our efforts with the security agencies are yielding significant results, we believe that sustainable peace and security will be enhanced through wider non-kinetic engagements with all critical stakeholders. 

 In this regard, may I repeat my previous calls and hereby request our President-Elect to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu immediately after swearing-in (that is, if he is not released before then).  

“We need him around the table as an important stakeholder in discussions about healing and sustainable peace in the South East.

“To our newly elected colleagues (Governors-Elect), we say a big congratulation. Let us work together, especially under the auspices of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) in pursuit of national common good. 

“We also congratulate the elected members of the National and State Assemblies. We also thank millions of Nigerians who voted for candidates of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) across the entire country.

 “As true believers in the potentials of Nigeria, our party will continue to network and collaborate with all like-minded Nigerians and groups to advance the greatness of this country.

“So far, winners have been declared, and those who are dissatisfied with the results have their rights to pursue their grievances through the due process of the law. 

My own political party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, might challenge several of the results in pursuit of justice. 

While we will take all necessary legal steps to recover the seats we believe that APGA won especially in Anambra state but were mistakenly called for other parties, we also know that several of the announced “winners” from other parties are “APGA-nized” and are patriotic citizens of the State”.
