Anambra: Going to court will be counterproductive – Metuh warns contenders

The former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, has warned contenders to sheath their swords and avoid litigation as Charles Soludo emerged winner of the Anambra governorship election.

Metuh said this while congratulating Soludo on his election victory.

He admonished those who contested the election to team up with the governor-elect in his quest to take the state to new heights instead of instituting court cases to challenge the outcome.

Metuh, in a statement he personally signed on Wednesday, described the election of Soludo as a reflection of the will of the people of Anambra State.

“I heartily congratulate Prof. Chukwuma Soludo on his emergence as the governor-elect of Anambra state after the keenly contested November 6, governorship election.

“Ndi Anambra has spoken and their voices were heard loud and clear. They have, through their votes, democratically made their choice of who governs them for the next four years.

“Though the outcome of the election may not have swung the way some individuals, especially those within the political circles, desired but Ndi Anambra have spoken and their choice must be respected and accepted,” he said.

He called on Ndi Anambra, irrespective of political affiliations, to avoid going to court and unite with Soludo to chart a new course for the state.

“I implore contenders who are hurting over the outcome of the election to sheathe their swords and put aside all personal interests for the sake of Ndi Anambra.

“It’s therefore imperative that we avoid the distractions of election litigations. Such will be counter-productive to the aspiration of our people to get our state working again. What we need at this moment is to concentrate our energies on moving our state to greater heights,” he said.

“Against this backdrop, I charge Prof. Soludo to ensure a true Anambra leadership by running an effective administration that will efficiently galvanize and harness the best hands so as to move our state forward. We expect the return of the real expatriate community to Onitsha and other prominent cities of the state.”

He advised Soludo to unite the people and return Anambra State to her pride of place as the flagship of development in Nigeria.
