Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo held a parley recently with traditional rulers, presidents-general and other stakeholders at the Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre Awka where the governor deepened his relationship with the grassroots assuring the entire citizenry of his total and unflinching commitment to homeland security through the instrumentality of the leadership of the 179 communities together with the traditional institutions in the state.
This bold step taken by the governor in the right direction speaks volumes of the governor’s recognition and understanding that the hinterland is indeed pivotal and integral to the success of his administration in Anambra state.
Hence the role of the Anambra State Association of Town Unions (ASATU) was made manifest at its monthly general meeting at the ASATU complex Government House Awka where.
Hon. Tony-Collins Nwabunwanne the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftancy Matters, Hon. Patrick Agha-Mba the Commissioner for Youth Development and Creative Economy, Hon. Chinedu Nwoye the Deputy Chief of Staff and Chief Protocol Officer to the Governor and Dr. Nelson Obinna Omenugha the Special Adviser to Governor Soludo on Youth Empowerment Programmes including the National President of ASATU Chief Barr. Titus Nnabuike Akpudo, all spoke so eloquently about the indispensable role of ASATU in achieving a liveable and prosperous new Anambra for all and sundry.
