Soludo successfully resolved disputes in 76 Anambra communities within 2 years.


The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) revealed that Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State, in less than two years, effectively resolved conflicts in approximately 76 communities within the state. These prolonged disputes, spanning years, had resulted in loss of lives and property due to disagreements over the selection of Traditional Rulers and Presidents General before the governor’s intervention.

APGA’s Anambra State Chairman, Chief Barr. Ifeatu Obi-okoye, shared this information after receiving a Chieftaincy title from Igwe Uzor Alex Onyiudo of Ogidi town in Idemili North Local Government Area. He highlighted that the previous practice of appointing Caretaker Executives in towns has ceased, with Governor Soludo taking proactive steps to address these crises.

Obi-okoye emphasized the significance of Soludo’s administration in withdrawing pending litigations, conducting elections overseen by the Commissioner for Local Government and Town Union Matters, Chief Tony Collins Nwabunwanne, and subsequently restoring peace in the communities. He stressed that this approach aims to ensure security and governance in rural areas, fostering socioeconomic development facilitated by local government area Chairmen.

Additionally, Obi-okoye asserted that Anambra’s vision as a livable, prosperous, and healthy smart city state hinges on peace restoration in rural regions. He commended Soludo’s efforts in maintaining peace and security, underscoring the challenge of fostering development in areas marred by ongoing communal disputes.

Addressing concerns about the election process for community leaders, Obi-okoye clarified that communities have their constitutions and guidelines governing leadership selection. He proposed that in the absence of established election models, communities should draft constitutions to serve as guiding principles for their electoral procedures, fostering a transparent and structured approach to leadership selection.
