Peoples’ Democratic Party Criticizes Soludo’s Performance in Anambra



Chukwuma Soludo

He stated, “It has been almost 24 months since Soludo was elected as the executive governor with high expectations. However, after 24 months, the people of Anambra have experienced increased suffering without any tangible progress.”

Chibuike further pointed out that under Soludo’s administration, the roads in Anambra have become almost unusable, causing difficulties for small business owners and traders to access their places of business.

According to him, the few road projects that have been awarded have been assigned to questionable contractors, resulting in more problems rather than solutions.

Chibuike added, “It is time for Soludo to consider resigning as the state is suffering in all aspects – spiritually, emotionally, physically, and economically. His incompetence and unfulfilled promises have led to tragedies for the people, including the inability of poor traders to access their places of business due to bad roads.

“Under his administration, the state has experienced irreparable damage, leading to poverty and inflicting mental, emotional, and physical torture on the people. Despite high revenue collection from fundraising programs and oppressive taxes, these funds have not been used for the people’s relief or meaningful development. The administration is characterized by propaganda, lies, and deceit, with state funds remaining unaccounted for. There is a lack of clear vision for their utilization.”

Chibuike highlighted that the state is facing a dire situation with non-existent motorable roads just weeks before Christmas, and security remains a major concern with the governor failing to address the issue in many local governments controlled by non-state actors.

“Under Soludo’s administration, leadership has deteriorated, forcing the people of Anambra to celebrate important events outside their ancestral homes due to insecurity. Traditional rulers are also unable to celebrate Ofala festivals due to these challenges.”

“Despite the attention and publicity, densely populated areas like Okpoko remain neglected. Owerri Road poses a constant threat to citizens’ lives, and beyond failed roads, Anambra under Soludo is the dirtiest state to live or do business in today,” the statement added.

However, Christian Aburime, the Press Secretary to Soludo, dismissed the claims, stating that the governor has achieved significant transformation in less than two years in office.

Aburime said, “Anyone who doubts this should visit Anambra to witness the massive transformation firsthand. The opposition’s ranting is simply to distract Soludo, who remains focused on delivering tangible dividends of democracy to the people of Anambra.

“The Soludo government is compassionate and empathetic towards the disadvantaged in the state. It is a pro-people government.”

“His achievements are numerous, including the employment of 5,000 teachers in the education sector, the abolition of fees in public schools, free antenatal and delivery services for pregnant women in government-owned hospitals, and the construction of more than 400 km of roads within the first 18 months in office,” Aburime added.
