THE flag bearer of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in the Nov. 6 gubernatorial election in Anambra State, Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo, has expressed worries over rate of unemployment among people of productive age. 

``I will as a matter of priority tackle it if elected into office,’’ Soludo made the promise at Ime Obi meeting, where he had gone to intimate Ndi Aguata on his manifesto. 

The candidate commended Gov. Willie Obiano for his superlative performance in governance with special regard to employment matters among young people. 

He enjoined importers too to begin to work on how companies that manufacture goods they import could be established in our state as his government would partner them to achieve this. 

``With me as governor, we shall export goods to gain dollars to our state,’’ 

Soludo said, adding that infrastructure like roads and electricity are basics to be attended to. They are enablers. 

``We will improve our school's infrastructure; teacher's welfare to make our education to measure with what it is in the Western World. We must secure our future with good education to our children,’’ he added.

The convener of the meeting and commissioner for health, Vincent Okpala, noted that Soludo has what it takes to build on Obiano's economic foundation. 

The Obi of Akpo, Cyprian Okpala, commended Soludo for starting from Akpo, assuring him victory at Akpo and Anambra State in general. 

The occasion featured a number of those that decamped from other political parties to APGA. 

Among them were Chukwudi Aguinam, a former Youth Leader, Young Progressive Party, YPP, People’s Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain, Christopher Okpalobi. 

In their separate speech, they attributed their actions to Soludo's quality, describing him as the best that has happened to Anambra State of late. 

Some of the dignitaries who attended the event included a former member State House of Assembly, Ikechukwu Umenwa, current member State House of Assembly Aguata 11, Okey Okoye, President-General Akpo Development Association, ADA, Henry C Dim.
