Anambra State governor-elect, Prof Chukwuma Soludo has officially been sworn-in as the Governor of the State.


The former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor took the oath of office alongside his deputy, Onyeka Ibezim.


Soludos inauguration came about four months after a landslide victory in the governorship poll.

The flagbearer of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), defeated his closest rival, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)s Valentine Ozigbo.

The Isuofia-born banker won 19 of the 21 local government areas of the state to clinch the post. He got 112,229 votes, twice higher than Ozigbo who had 53,807 votes.


The event was witnessed by several dignitaries, including the out-gone governor, Chief Willie Obiano and his wife, Mrs Ebelechukwu, and all the 30 members of the Anambra State House of Assembly.


The Governor had earlier stated that immediately after the swearing-in, he would proceed to Okpoko, a sprawling slum, near Onitsha, where he would spend eight hours working to provide a better living for the people.
