Listen to article

The Governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo has come under fire following the destruction of goods belonging to petty traders in Awka, the state capital yesterday. 

The Eastern Updates gathered that there was a massive destruction of traders’ wares on Oby Okoli and Abakiliki Streets by officials of Awka Capital Territory Development Agency (ACTDA).

The said streets are currently witnessing Soludo’s touch, and are being dualised, reason street traders are being chased away from the area.

Yesterday’s destruction of wares was gathered to have been supervised by the Managing Director of ACTDA, Mr Ossy Onuko.

A victim, Ukamaka Eze, who provided video evidence of the destruction of wares, said: “Unlike other times when they used to confiscate people’s goods, today’s own (Monday), they confiscated and immediately set them ablaze.

“I think Soludo is heartless if he actually sent those people. We are complaining of hardship and how we can survive, and here, they are burning our goods. This is unfair.”

Another trader in the area who identified himself as Ejimofor said: “They have been shooting guns here.

“They are shameless people. Old women who are selling food condiments, they just destroyed their goods, and when people wanted to intervene, they started shooting.

“I think Soludo does not know what these people are doing, because this was not what he promised us.”

In another report, Soludo has received the report titled “Solution Agenda: Shaping the Future of Anambra State through Innovative Educational Strategies” from the 18-member Anambra State Educational Advisory Council.

Osita Chidoka, the Vice Chairman of the Council, mentioned on Friday that the ad-hoc body was established to create innovative approaches for providing quality education and enhancing learning outcomes for students in the Anambra school system.

The Advisory Council had Mr. Soludo as its Chairman, and Prof Ngozi-Chuma Udeh, the Commissioner for Education, as its Secretary.
