Civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has called on Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, to focus on delivering dividends of governance to people of the state and stop attacks on one of his predecessors and Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, in a statement, said Soludo should focus on bringing to an end the activities of ‘unknown gunmen’ turning the state to a killing field.
The group also urged the governor to tackle the menace of flooding, cater to the well-being of internally displaced persons living in camps in the state, and get rid of filth and rubbish littering the streets of Anambra since he assumed office on March 17, 2022.
Recall that Soludo had attacked Obi, saying the investment he left in government was worth close to nothing. Soludo also said Obi couldn’t win the 2023 presidential election.
Onwubiko said: “Soludo should pay attention to the arduous task of governance expected of him because Anambra is filthy, as we speak, with rubbish littering all over major towns and cities, including Onitsha. Cult battles are going on and gunmen are on the loose, killing, maiming and destroying innocent Anambra citizens.
But the governor, rather than concentrate and provide good governance, has embarked on a fruitless adventure of fertilising, catalysing and ‘funding’ and/or encouraging all kinds of attacks against Peter Obi.
