On January 1st, 2021, select distinguished personalities from the constituent kindred in Isuofia, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, will convene at the behest of Mr. Emeka Madonna Okafor, to inaugurate the Isuofia chapter of Soludo Promoters Forum, SPF.
Soludo Promoters Forum is one of the many pressure groups set up by the elite to encourage and support the most internationally and nationally sought after Professor of Economics in Nigeria, Chukwuma Charles Soludo, to contest in the Anambra State’s governorship election coming up in 2021.
It would be recalled that SPF is already spreading like wildfire across Anambra State, starting from Anambra South Senatorial Zone where Professor Soludo hails from.
SPF proves to be a platform for the hitherto politically complacent elite class in Anambra, who are now willing and ready to take up the challenge of influencing fellow elites, influencers and community members at large towards ensuring that the electorate makes informed decision on who advances the affairs of Anambra State further for the next four years.
According to a memo endorsed by the facilitators of the Forum, namely; Professor Okey Ikeanyibe, Andy Okafor, Leo Chiegboka, Joe Anatune , Casmir Igbokwe, Uche Muobuike, Engr. Chidi Chukwuneme and Obinna Oforjama, the occasion would feature “MAXIMUM MOBILIZATION” for Soludo to show him that they are fully in support of this clarion call for him to contest the forthcoming Anambra governorship election in 2021. They however warned that attendance to the inaugural meeting would be strictly on invitation.
Soludo Promoters Forum has been launched in many towns and local government areas in Anambra State. It started from Aguata Local Government Area with the chief convener, Professor Romanus Ezeokonkwo, hosting the grand occasion in his country home at Nkpologwu. It has been launched in many local governments and communities. More towns and local government areas are on queue to launch the Forum and thousands of elites in the 21 local government areas of the state are joining on a daily basis.
The launch in different local governments and communities has lived up to its billing as the elites have come out en masse to give their full support to Soludo. The SPF came into existence to reawaken the political consciousness of the hitherto lukewarm elite.
No doubt, Soludo towers above any other aspirant to the Anambra governorship position. He is not only a former CBN governor, he is also a former National Economic Adviser, and consultants to many institutions across the world. He has the capacity, the intellectual prowess and the leadership credentials to take Anambra State to an apogee of development. He has the global contact and influence that could attract foreign investments to Anambra State.
