Anambra 2017: Why I won’t contest against Obiano – Soludo

Former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Chukwuma Soludo, has insisted he has no plans to contest in the Anambra governorship polls.
Soludo was speaking on Friday, at a lecture to mark the anniversary of Governor Willie Obiano’s administration.

He said that many people were calling on him to contest, but asked: “If Anambra is not broken, why mend it?”
Soludo, who contested for the All Progressives Grand Alliance ticket with Obiano in 2013, stated that he was not planning to contest the November 18 election.
“There is no need for change at the moment. Anambra is the fourth largest economy in Nigeria behind Lagos, Abuja and Rivers. The private sector must play a role to shore up the country’s earnings,” he said.
“We are in a crisis moment and you don’t change a general in the middle of the war; in Anambra, Obiano is a general”, he added.

He also rated Anambra as the fourth largest economy in Nigeria, only behind Lagos, Abuja and River States.
