Chukwuma Soludo, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has announced his intention to run for the governorship of Anambra state.

Soludo is expected to run on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), NAN reports.

The former apex bank governor made his ambition known on Thursday in Awka, Anambra state capital.

He said he will lead APGA to victory in the November 6 election, promising to use his international network to transform the state.

Soludo also praised the administration of Willie Obiano, incumbent governor of Anambra, describing him as one of the best in the country.

He said: “I granted an interview where they asked if I still stand by what I said in 2017 that ‘if Anambra is not broken, why mend it and I told them that Anambra is more sound now.

“In 2010, Federal Bureau of Statistics conducted a survey and said the poverty rate in Anambra was 53 per cent.

“In 2020, it conducted another survey and said poverty rate had gone down to 14.7 per cent, what else can you use to measure good governance.

“Anambra is doing well under Obiano and my mission is to continue and complete all the legacy projects of the governor.”

The event was attended by APGA chieftains in Anambra, including Nobert Obi, the state chairman.
