Prof Chukwuma Soludo — I will Drive IVM Cars and Wear Local Made Clothes as Governor

The Anambra state governor-elect, Prof Chukwuma Soludo has come out to say that the indigenous IVM motors, will be his official car as the governor of Anambra state, and that he will wear locally made clothes.



He made this announcement today just as days draws nearer to his inauguration as the governor of Anambra state. He also clamped down any plans for extravagant expenses in the name of party.


He said that his main dress as governor will be his locally made fabrics known as Akwete, saying it is his intention to support local brands, Soludo who visited members of the inauguration committee said this during his speech.


In his words; Prof Chukwuma said;


“My Akwete dress is not just a dress, it’s a statement. I want to make a statement with it. You know, in the entire South East, this is the only textile thing alive, and it’s handmade, by the women of Akwaete in Abia State.



“Igbo land is one and we must protect it. We want to bring back the zeal of patronizing our own. I have said it even during campaigns, and I meant it, that if I win, the official car of the governor of Anambra State will be an Innoson vehicle.


“The dresses I will wear are those made in our place here. We must protect the things that are made in our place. Something is about to happen in Igboland, and together we will get there.”


“I have made a wish that not even one Kobo of Anambra People’s money be spent on that swearing-in ceremony. It is a wish, and I mean it. What are we spending money on? Just a few people coming to the inauguration and witnessing it, then I will open office and get down to work immediately.


“I do not wish any event, dancers or players and all that. I just want to show up for work, like every first day of work. Though it is going to be a Friday, which is a weekend, I’m going to work for over eight hours that day.


“No ceremony, no event, no party, nothing. Not even 10 Kobo will be spent. So the people who are saying N20 million has been budgeted should go and tell us where they will get that money. It is going to be work, work, work, and that is what we epitomize.”

  1. Good one governor elect, I think you will redefine governance in the south east in particular & in Nigeria in general for other governors to copy. I hope your people would not start complaining of starving them with spending money. This is exactly what El-rufai is doing in Kaduna, construction of quality roads, markets, hospitals, Schools. people start complaining because he doesn’t share money or allow corruption . Poeple are crying of bad govts but when a new govt come on board to do the right thing, the same people will start complaining. You have good intentions, I hope your people will support you in that regard.
