The Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo has called on wealthy Anambranians to strive to be celebrated with good works in their name while alive.
Soludo made this call over the weekend while commissioning a 250-bed capacity female hostel and several projects in Community High School Akwaeze, in Anaocha Local Government Area.
The Eastern Updates report that the project was built and donated by Chief Ikenna Okafor, the founder of Nzekwuabuo Foundation.
Among other projects, the Governor also laid the foundation stone for the male hostel and inspected the equipped science laboratories, an E-library, a multi-purpose hall, an ICT hub, and a 60 KVA diesel-powered generator donated by the foundation.
Speaking shortly after performing the function, Governor Soludo commended Chief Okafor for their great initiatives describing him as a great son of the soil, who is not only a blessing to the people of Akwaeze but to Anambra as a whole.
The governor said: ‘We have come to celebrate you while you are still alive, because you are living a life with purpose.
Soludo had last week declared that his government was adopting the transformational style of leadership, to deliver dividends of democracy to the people.
The governor made this known on Wednesday when he swore-in two new aides – a commissioner and a special adviser, to form members of the state executive council.
The aides who were sworn-in included Mr. Christian Udechukwu as Commissioners for Industry and Mr. Evarist Uba as Special Adviser on Trade and Markets.
