Professor Charles Soludo was on Thursday sworn in as the sixth civilian governor of Anambra state.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Soludo, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), won the November 6, 2021 governorship election on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA). He defeated his closest rivals from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), Valentine Ozigbo and Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba, respectively.
He takes over from Willie Obiano, who is bowing out today.
