In a statement on Tuesday, Soludo expressed his willingness to collaborate with the federal government to achieve a high standard of development in his state.

The governor also felicitated all Nigerians, stating that the country is the ultimate beneficiary of the successful elections. He expressed confidence that Nigeria has a brighter future ahead.

“Let me also congratulate the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his election. Nigeria is the winner, and I am confident that a better future lies ahead of us, congratulations to all Nigerians,” he said.

“We pledge to collaborate and partner with you and the federal government for the development of Anambra state and Nigeria. This is the only country that we call ours and we must make it work.”

Furthermore, Soludo made an appeal to Tinubu to consider releasing Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), because he believes Kanu is a “crucial stakeholder” in the attainment of lasting peace in the south-eastern region.

“In this regard, may I repeat my previous calls and hereby request our president-elect to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu immediately after swearing-in (that is, if he is not released before then),” he said.

“We need him around the table as an important stakeholder in discussions about healing and sustainable peace in the south-east. Elections and partisan politics are over, and we should all now focus 100 percent of our time on delivering good governance to our people.”
