Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR, has warmly advised Ndi Anambra resident in Lagos that Anambra State is ready for business, adding that investing in the State will be in their own best interest.

The Governor made the appeal during a town hall meeting with with Ndi Anambra resident in Lagos while enumerating some of the progress made so far by his administration after a year in office.

While making his speech, Governor Soludo sounded philosophical by telling his audience that God couldn't have made a mistake by making them Onye Anambra.

He enjoined them to reflect deeply on it and do everything possible to contribute to the growth of the state.

"This is the same question I ask myself everyday. And we have a responsibility to leave Anambra State better than we met"; the Governor said.

He emphasized on the need to change Anambra State from a departure lounge to a destination, stressing that the homeland consciousness must be inculcated in the perceptual-mind of every onye-Anambra.

"Your host will never respect you if you don't have a livable and prosperous homeland". Governor Soludo reiterated

On security-related issues, the Governor maintained that his administration has drastically reduced the menace of killings and kidnapping to the barest minimum with the security architecture put in place by his government.

He commended the Security forces- the Army, Navy, Police, the States Vigilante Group and other paramilitary agencies for thier dogged efforts in contributing to the successes recorded so far.

The Governor also told his audience that the first order of business is law and order and reassured them that law and order has been greatly restored in the state compared to the impunity that held sway before he came into office.

He also reassured that more roads will be flagged off in addition to the over 300 kilometers of roads already flagged off and are in various stages of completion.

The Governor decried the menace of gully erosion and flooding ravaging the state, assuring that efforts are being exerted to control it.

He informed the audience that Anambra Investment Summit will be coming up soon in September this year, urging every business conscious Ndi-Anambra to join the rest of the world at the summit. He added that the summit will be "all about closing deals" and agreements' signing.

"Anambra is loading and the options are open." Governor Soludo further reassured.

Concluding, Governor Soludo appealed to Ndi-Anambra to always think home by imbibing the 'homeland consciousness' and to also ensure that part of their taxes are paid to the State, irrespective of where they reside or work, adding that this is the only way they can contribute to the state's development.
