Aformer Governor of Anambra State, Chinwoke Mbadinuju, says governor-elect Chukwuma Soludo will provide visionary leadership as governor.
Mr Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), was recently issued a certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“I strongly believe that Prof. Soludo possesses the required vision that can move Anambra State to the next level,” Mr Mbadinuju said in a congratulatory message in Enugu on Friday.
Mr Mbadinuju urged Mr Soludo to be magnanimous in victory and embrace everyone and also appealed to the other candidates in the election to accept the result.
“I want to express my profound congratulations to the Governor-elect and urge his opponents during the campaign to accept the result of the election,” he said.
Mr Mbadinuju, who governed the state under PDP, praised the peaceful conduct of the November 6 election in spite of the threats that trailed it.
The former governor praised the nation’s electoral umpire and President Muhammadu Buhari for maintaining neutrality before and during the election.
