The inauguration of the Soludo Promoters Forum in Akpo, Aguata Local Government Area on January 20, 2021, was not just a success but has unleashed significant milestones. Akpo has totally opened their hearts to the good news from Soludo arising from Operation Total Mobilisation of the Prof. Phil Eze’-led Akpo Chapter of Soludo Promoters Forum.
A very impressed Igwe Jonathan Okpalaezechaa, the Nnam Oshimili II of Akpo Kingdom not only threw his weight and that of his kingdom behind Soludo’s governorship candidature, who he attested, has done so much for Anambra state, (many unsung) but also offered useful advice. The enigmatic Igwe acknowledged Soludo’s gift of using public policies to improve the quality of lives of both the poor and rich. He sees Anambra’s next round of glories coming from Soludo’s leadership.
At Prof. Phil Eze’s Amaife family compound, venue of the inauguration, speaker after speaker spoke glowingly of Soludo’s achievements, as well as the imperative and prospects of his leadership of the state.
The crowd, which was made up of who is who in Akpo and a fine blend of women and vibrant youths, went into a frenzy, when Soludo called to assure them of a better tomorrow for their community and for all parts of the state in his “One Anambra, One People With One Agenda” vision.
The tempo was sustained by the unveiling of the Anambra Smart Megacity Vision and the swearing in of the crack team of outstanding men and women that will pilot the affairs of the Forum in Akpo.
Now, the good news is that the courageous and brave people of Akpo have assured that Soludo will receive 98% of votes in all the 12 polling units in the town. Akpo is famous for keeping their promise, so you can take this one to the bank.
The refreshments were first class and the solidarity from the other Soludo support groups was very commendable. We however did not have the time to do the ”Mmiri Nwangwo walk,” but look forward to that, when Soludo personally visits Akpo in a not-too-distant time.
