Chukwuma Soludo, the Anambra State Governor has urged Ndị Igbos in Lagos to invest in Anambra State.
Soludo said that the Lagos State government will not respect Igbos if their states were not prosperous.
Soludo’s plea comes on the heels of the demolition of shops owned by Igbos in Alaba International Market.
Speaking at a townhall meeting with Anambra indigenes in Lagos, Soludo said: “Your host will never respect you if you don’t have a livable and prosperous homeland and we have a responsibility to leave Anambra State better than we met it”
He said his government has made efforts to make Anambra a business-friendly environment, adding that “Anambra Investment Summit will be coming up soon in September this year.”
“Anambra is loading and the options are open. The need to change Anambra State from a departure lounge to a destination; the homeland consciousness must be inculcated in the perceptual mind of every Onye-Anambra,” Mr Soludo said.
