More than half of Anambra State’s indigenous population, according to Governor Chukwuma Soludo, reside outside the state.
This was declared by Soludo as he urged the world to support his government’s efforts to create a successful and long-lasting Anambra.
When he hosted a group of the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria at the Governor’s Lodge in Awka, the former Central Bank Governor made the call.
The UN delegation was led by Mr. Marthias Schmale, according to a statement from Christian Aburime, Soludo’s press secretary.
According to Soludo, the prosperity of Anambra and the nation at large depends on the active participation of international partners.
The governor stated that the UN team’s visit was significant for Anambra and his administration in particular, especially at a time when the UN had not had an office in the entire South East for a long time.
According to him, “more than half of the indigenous population of Anambra live outside the state; my administration will soon inaugurate the Anambra Education Council, to further engender qualitative and accessible education.
We will also establish the Strategy Execution and Evaluation, ‘SEE’ office.”
