Former ational Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has congratulated Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo, for his victory in the just concluded Anambra governorship election.
Oshiomhole in a statement Friday night by his media aide, Victor Oshioke, said the victory has given Soludo a unique opportunity to raise the bar in politics and governance to meet the aspirations of Anambra people.
He said: “Dear Prof. Charles Soludo, I congratulate you on your victory in the Anambra governorship election concluded recently. It is indeed a victory richly deserved given your impressive antecedents.
“Now that the election is over, the expectations of Anambra people are understandably high, especially because of your rich background. You therefore have a unique opportunity to raise the bar in politics and governance to meet the aspirations of Anambra people.”
He prayed that God gives Soludo better understanding, wisdom, vision and more courage to build on the foundation laid by his predecessors, to enable him take Anambra State to an enviable level.
The former Edo State Governor also congratulated Dr. Andy Uba of the APC and Valentine Ozigbo of the PDP, for their good showing in the election.
According to him, democracy thrives best when there is healthy contestation and credible alternatives for the people to choose from.
“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,” Oshiomhole said.
