Former Central Bank of Nigeria CBN governor Prof Charles Soludo yesterday put to rest all curiosity and permutations over his rumoured ambition for the governoship seat of Anambra state when he finally declared his interest in the November 6th election in the area.

Though he said that he is still consulting, but he accepted the call by the United Anambra Youth Assembly U- AYA and United Anambra Women Assembly U-AWA for him to contest for the governoship election under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA.

Confirming his declaration the founder of the two pressure groups , U-AWA and U-AYA and members l representing Anambra East and West Federal Constituency Chief Chinedu Obidigwe made it clear that going by Soludo's acceptance to their call to come and contest under APGA he has officially made his declaration.

Speaking at the New Year Activation Meeting of the two organizations which also included over twenty seven Soludo support groups, the former CBN governor noted that the hand of God is in his ambition noting that he will not disappoint his supporters.

"This is something that started last year January and has continued with such a crowd of supporters and that shows that the hand of God is in this journey.

We have done it for Nigeria when I was CBN governor and those years were the golden age of Nigeria"s economy and while in office we created 12.6 million jobs and in Anambra we shall do more than that.

"God has blessed me with good health, wealth and happy family and indeed I am humbled God's blessings and I am not asking God to give me this or that but I am asking him to use me as an instrument to touch the lives of people and I offer myself as that instrument in the hand of God to touch the lives of people.

" This journey is not a one man journey but a journey of all of us and if we remain united we shall get to our destination by the grace of God.

"You do not need certificate to impact on the lives of the people and if you like have all the university degrees from where ever but you don't need those certificate to render service and good governance to your people..

His Excellency Gov Willie Obiano has done so well and that is to the credit of APGA and we shall sustain it ; You will remember that the governor was going for second tenure I said why are you want to mend it if it is not broken and I stand by what I said.

In responds to Soludo speech , The member representing Anambra East and West Federal Constituency Chief Chinedu Obidigwe stated that there so no more reason for any body to begin to ask questions if Soludo is contesting adding that he has accepted their plea to contest under the platform of APGA
