Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has congratulated Anambra State Governor, Professor Charles Soludo and his Deputy, Dr Onyeka Ibezim, on their inauguration and assumption of office.
The governor, through a statement released by Nathaniel Ikyur, his Chief Press Secretary, hailed the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN) for his vision which he has promised to make “Anambra a mega-industrialised economy.”
Ortom said that although Soludo was coming into government at a time the economy of the country was at an all-time low, and insecurity has posed a major challenge in the country, “we are confident that you will use your wealth of experience as a renowned economist and a technocrat in the management of CBN to contribute positively to the challenges facing the country.”
The Governor expressed confidence that the election of Soludo will usher in a greater cooperation between Benue and Anambra in many ways in terms business and other economic development.
He stated: “Let me congratulate you and your deputy on your assumption of office as Governor and Deputy Governor of Anambra State. I am convinced that you will provide an enduring leadership for the people in appreciation for the massive support they gave you at your election.
“I have no doubt that you will bring your wealth of experience, and as one who managed the economy of Nigeria at the highest level to help stabilise these challenges.
“You are coming into office at a time the country is going through very difficult times economically and a monstrous insecurity, I have no doubt that you will use your wealth of experience to change the narrative in Anambra, especially as you have assured of making the state an alluring investment destination.”
