A youth leader in Oraukwu and a political activist in Anambra state politicking, Hon. Ochiogu Ndubisi and good number of traders in the state have suggested that if Professor chukwuma Soludo is elected as the next Governor of Anambra state with Hon. Uchenna Okafor (wiper), as his deputy Governor, the state and its economy, including basic infrastructures would improve tremendously.
Speaking to newsmen at Onitsha Hon. Ochiogu who is one of the business moguls in the trading circle of the state explained that the traders in actual sense do not openly support any gubernatorial aspirant but rely on any government in Power, GIP, pointing out that Professor Soludo as an classical Economist and resource manager will reposition the state economically and in providing basic amenities to the citizenry.
On the side of the current commissioner for trade, commerce and investment, Hon. Uchenna Okafor, who was the former Chairman of Oyi local government Area of Anambra state, who is being suggested to be the deputy Governor of the state, Hon. Ndubisi Ochiogu noted that he will help to improve the well-being of the traders and the traders will vote massively for Soludo if he is paired with him.
The honorable commissioner who is said to be conversant with the problems and aspirations of the traders and was sometime incharge of parks and markets would invariably join hands with Professor chukwuma Soludo in solving the problems of the state. Other traders who spoke in favour of the suggestion to making Mr Uchenna Okafor a running mate to Professor Soludo included Mr. John Odibo, Cletus lbe, Margaret Onyinye, Agnes Obiageli and Mr.James Okeke amongst others
