Charles Soludo has been sworn in as the fifth governor of Anambra State in a low-key ceremony that took place at the Government House on Thursday.
The former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor, who succeeded Willie Obiano, took the oath of office amid heavy security alongside his deputy, Onyeka Ibezim.
A circular by the state government showed that about 50 persons were invited for the ceremony as Soludo said he wanted a low-profile event.
Some of those who attended the event include the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Oye and wife; Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Uchenna Okafor and wife; Sen. Victor Umeh and wife; Bianca Ojukwu, clergymen, traditional rulers among others.
After he was sworn in, Soludo assured the Anambra people that he is ready to deliver on his campaign promises, saying the state would “win” under his watch.
