What Nnewi traders want from Soludo



With the inauguration of Prof Chukwuma Soludo as the new governor of Anambra State, some traders in Nnewi aired their views on what they want from Soludo. They spoke to ADAOBI CHUKWUJEKWU and CHIKE ENECHUKWU

A COMMUNITY leader and business man, Chiagozie Osunkwo, popularly known as  Akajiofor Nnewi, thanke God for allowing an intelligent, wisdom filled man like Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo as elected Governor of Anambra State.

  According to him, “he will look up to resurrect and awaken our people to being informed and acquitted with culture and tradition that will eliminate, if not control irresponsible and antisocial menace such as knowing the implication and consequences of being involved in murder, robbery, rape, prostitution, cultism, internet fraud, ritual killing,child trafficking, etc”.

  Okpala Nnewi went on to say that culture and tradition brings a bond of living in harmony that will make a fellow human being to reject doing evil to another. He said introducing culture and tradition into the school system will curtail evil report in society, being aware of the ethics and norms and it will also boost the economy in the aspect of tourism.

 Regarding the traders’ condition in Anambra State, inflation, excess taxation and levy in the market should be checked by controlling thugs and touts.

  Another business man, Mazi Udebuo Odobulu-Agwuebuo suggested that the new governor should control excessive levies in the market and save the traders from money extortions through unnecessary levies. He urged the governor to look into stipends paid to heads of traditional ofo title holders (Isimmuo) in appreciation of the roles they play in the community alongside the Igwes. 

  Also, a Nnewi trader, Brother Nicodemus Obiorah Chinawaeze of Nicol and Partners Nig. Ltd opined that since the incoming governor, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo is also called “Soludo Solution”, “he will bring a lasting solution to the greatest state of the Eastern Region without mincing words.

I want to see our new governor providing good road network built by a reputable company like Julius Berger or RCC; their constructions are durable with up to 25 yrs guarantee or to emulate the concrete roads type built in Ebonyi State by Govnor David Umahi. Another thing is that the present insecurity in Anambra should be tackled  to make way for a more meaningful business and services atmosphere  since our new governor is of international repute. He should carry along other eastern states, bringing the governors together by creating a power plant to boom businesses in the South Eastern Region.
