Former Presidential Candidate and Chieftain of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Professor Kingsley Moghalu, has expressed joy at the emergence of ex-governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Professor Chukwuma Soludo, as governor-elect of Anambra State.
Moghalu who congratulated the candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Soludo for his resounding victory at the just concluded gubernatorial election in Anambra State, described it as the will of the people.
The Eastern Updates had earlier reported that Professor Charles Soludo polled 112,229 votes to defeat his closest rival and the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Valentine Ozigbo, who scored 53, 807.
Senator Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate got a total of 43, 285 votes to emerge the third position.
Reacting to the outcome of the election in Anambra state, Moghalu, in a statement which was obtained by The Eastern Updates on Thursday, applauded the people of Anambra State for having spoken with one voice, which all political players must respect, in favour of Soludo and APGA for the governorship seat.
He further expressed total confidence that Soludo will work hard and productively for the Anambra people, wishing him a successful tenure in office.
According to the ex-Presidential candidate, ‘It is no surprise: Anambra has consistently voted APGA for the leadership of the state, even as it has voted more independently for national elective offices’.
