Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra, says he will produce one thousand millionaires yearly if elected.
He made the pledge at the official flag off of his campaign in Awka on Saturday, ahead of the Anambra Nov. 6 governorship election.
Soludo, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) used the event to formally present his manifesto.
The official flag off of Soludo’s campaign, was coming barely 41 days to the election, and is the first official flag off by any of the 18 political parties fielding candidates for the election.
Soludo said the manifesto was a well thought out document and had all in it for all round transformation of Anambra.
“If I am elected the next governor, my administration will produce one thousand youth millionaires every year. By the grace of God, the next APGA government will ensure that 130, 000 jobs are created yearly in Anambra,” he promised.
Soludo, flanked by his running mate, Dr Ifeanyi Ibezim, said his vision was to ensure that any child born in Anambra would not leave the state in search of greener pastures elsewhere.
Gov. Willie Obiano who also spoke, said he was proud to have Soludo as his potential successor, adding that the former CBN governor had the pedigree and contact to drive Anambra to the next level.
Obiano who listed the signature projects he did to include the Anambra Airport, 12, 000 seating capacity International Conference Centre and Awka Stadium, said he was convinced that Soludo would do better than him.
“The former APGA government before me did well, my government performed better and I hope if elected, Soludo will be best,” he said.
Obiano said, with Soludo, APGA would have landslide victory at the poll.
