Good governance Advocate, Political Analyst and Media and Communication Aide of Gambo Manzo, Ambassador Timothy Nwachukwu, took to his Facebook account to share some lessons which he believes other states must learn from the politics in Anambra.
The Public Relations Officer at the Nigerian News Publication, New National Star, revealed on his social media that he finds it amazing when he sees pictures that emanate from the Anambra state in areas of politics and governance.
According to Ambassador Timothy Nwachukwu, “This has become a standard and benchmark inarguably for other states to learn from.” Further, He also mentioned the state of Ebonyi, which is his own home state. He believes that Anambra can be an inspiration to the state.
To elaborate on his point, Ambassador Nwachukwu stated that (the Governor of Anambra) Charles Soludo, is a member of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA). Meanwhile, the Senator of Anambra, Uche Lilian Ekwunife, is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party. His reference is that even though these leaders belong to different political parties, they still work well together for the upliftment and prosperity of Anambra.
The Ambassador believes that Anambra State is more interested in the politics of development. Therefore there is a synergy between the two leaders. State Government, is of a different political party. Further, members of the National Assembly belong to different political parties.
The ambassador and media advisor stated that he was delighted that Governor Soludo was setting a standard worthy of emulation for other political parties.
Further, Timothy Nwachukwu emphasised that this is a clarion call for Ebonyi politicians and other states to learn from Anambra State, where the people prioritise the improvement of the lives of the citizens above political parties.
The state in question is the Nigerian Ambassador’s in-laws’ state (Wife’s maternal home), which arguably makes him knowledgeable about the state’s workings, and thus, he believes that his own home state can learn much from Anambra.
