There has been rising security challenges in Anambra shortly after Soludo assumed office as governor of the state.
Reacting to the development via a statement made available to journalists on Friday, the President-General of The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, opined that Soludo was exacerbating the situation by his utterances.
According to him: “the OYC has keenly followed the recent developments in Anambra State since Prof. Charles Soludo took over as Governor. No day passes by without one unfortunate incident or the other being recorded in the State.
“We also observed that the worsening situation is traceable to the Governor’s outbursts shortly after he was sworn-in as Governor.
“One should have expected the Governor to first study the situation and begin to engage diplomatic moves than his quick orders on sit-at-home and amnesty for the agitators.”
Okwu advised the Governor to exercise restraint over the security challenge facing the State.
“At this moment, we expect Prof. Soludo to talk less and do more of engagement. Letting his mouth open at every slightest opportunity would not do Anambra State and indeed the South-East any good.
“The only amnesty is to collaborate with his colleagues and other South-East leaders in their push to get a political solution to this problem and see to the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention,” he said.
