2023: Soludo names Atiku “one of the two front-runners” for presidency

Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Soludo said one of the two front-runners for the 2023 presidential election is Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He made this statement at the Governor’s Lodge in Awka, Anambra State, on Thursday, when Atiku visited him.

Soludo said the state is open to receiving all candidates who should sell themselves to the residents of the South-East state.

He said, “Anambra should be an open space for all to come and tell the people what they have in stock for them as the 2023 election draws closer.

“Part of what we are asking for is to have a level playing field for all, and that is my own orientation.”

The governor equally appealed to Atiku to address erosion issues in Anambra if he wins next year’s election.

Reacting to the governor’s petitions in an interview, Atiku said, “This is a very gigantic project. And I promised him I’m going to do that, and you know I have worked with Soludo before, he is a first-class patriotic Nigerian.

“You have an excellent governor. He also appealed to me about the Onitsha Port, and I said this time around we are going to dredge the River Niger and the Onitsha Port will function.

“We are also going to help Anambra industrialise the state so that the state will create as many jobs as possible for our young men and women.”
