South-East will slide into anarchy if Soludo disappoints: PDP Chieftain

Christian Chima, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the eloquence of Charles Soludo, the governor-elect of Anambra, has raised the hope of democracy, stating that the entire South-East region could slide into anarchy should he disappoint people of the state.

“Soludo is brilliant and eloquent, especially through his utterances since he was declared governor-elect. This has raised a lot of hope that democracy can be given one more shot in the state,” Mr Chima said.

“One can then imagine how tragic it will become if Soludo disappoints. That possible endpoint is frightening and if it happens, the south east will, no doubt, slide into possible anarchy,” he added.

Mr Chima disclosed this to journalists in Awka, the state capital on Friday. According to him, Mr Soludo cannot afford to fail or disappoint as the people are hopeful that he will be that light at the end of the South-East’s political tunnel.

“We are at a time when the confidence of the masses on the political leadership of the south east is at an all-time low.

“The whole of the south east, not just Anambra, suffers from pervasive voter apathy, rooted in a deep-seated feeling that the collective aspiration of our people can no longer be achieved through the political process,” he stated.

Mr Chima also said that PDP in Anambra will be a strong opposition by keeping Mr Soludo on his toes.

He said as the March 17 inauguration of Anambra’s governor-elect drew close, the party was ready to live up to its responsibility as an opposition party in the state.

“We are more mindful of the harm Soludo’s failure will do to the collective psyche and destiny of our people, than the cheap political points that may accrue to our party on the account of his failure.

“The goal is not to provide toxic opposition but through robust engagement, Soludo will, at every turn, see Anambra PDP as a constant reminder of the enormous responsibility that has been placed on his shoulders.”
