Soludo urged not to hobnob with greedy politicians

Published

on

Former chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC), Simon Okeke, has advised Governor-elect Charles Soludo to avoid greedy politicians if he wants to be successful.

“Soludo must be wary of rapacious politicians who would be hovering around him, and advising him to share the money meant for the development of the state, he must learn how to say no to such advisers,” said Mr Okeke. 

Mr Okeke gave the advice during a press briefing in his country home, Amichi, Nnewi South local government area of the state on Wednesday.

Mr Okeke explained that Mr Soludo should learn from former governors who failed because they listened to covetous politicians, who pose as godfathers as well as friends or relatives.

According to him, Mr Soludo has no reason to fail. 

“The governor-elect has the capacity to take Anambra to the next level, giving his knowledge, antecedents and vast connection, therefore no excuse of failure should come from him,” he added. “For the little time I interacted with him, I found in him a person who has the capacity to turn the fortunes of the state for the better.”

He added that the Anambra electorate voted for Mr Soludo because he promised that his international connection would make the light of the state shine better and leave the state better than it is presently.

“We all believed him because of the legacy he left at the banking sector when he was Central Bank of Nigeria governor. Citizens of Anambra hold him in very high esteem, and that was why he received massive support during the governorship election. He must not betray this confidence,” he added.
