In his tireless march towards a beautiful and prosperous homeland, Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR, of Anambra State has continued to make a compelling impact of achievements within 23 months in office.

This period has borne witness to the indomitable spirit of progress and transformation that permeates the very essence of Anambra’s development under his stewardship.

At the nucleus of the administration’s endeavours lies a resolute commitment to the pillars of security, law, and order, infrastructure and economic rejuvenation, human capital development, governance reforms, and the fostering of a sustainable environment. This holistic approach paints a vivid picture of a leadership dedicated to not just the present, but to sculpting a future teeming with prosperity and well-being for the citizens of Anambra.

In the field of urban regeneration, a pivotal chapter unfolds with the establishment of the “Anambra Urban Regeneration Council” (AURC) in October 2022. A vanguard against the encroachment of ‘chaotic slums’ within our urban landscapes, the AURC stands as a tribute to the administration’s foresight and determination to reshape the very fabric of Anambra’s cities.
