Igwe Chukwuemeka Ilouno, the traditional ruler of Ifitedunu Community in Dunukofia Local Government Area in Anambra State, has hailed people of the state for a peaceful and successful poll.

Ilouno, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), thanked the electorate in the state who braved all odds to come out and vote to determine a worthwhile poll contest devoid of violence.

According to him, “We thank God; it has come and gone; while calm has returned to the state.

“Notwithstanding some shortcomings and serious security concerns, we thank God it is all over and the state has returned back to normalcy.

“I thank the electorate, INEC, security agencies, media, local and international observers among others for making the poll successful.

“I also commend the winner of the poll, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, as well as other contestants for allowing the process to pull through.

“We are also happy that the election was highly transparent, relatively non-violence, and reflects the wishes of the majority of the electorate and people of Anambra,” he said.

The traditional ruler, however, called on Anambra residents to give maximum support to Soludo to succeed, adding: “With all his good ideas and vision for the state, Soludo can do little if we do not support him”.

“With our overwhelming support, the challenges Soludo will face would be less.

“Then, Soludo will be able to avail much and succeed.

“All should support him notwithstanding political, creed and philosophical inclinations.

“We want him to success and give Anambra a fast-track progress and futuristic economic blueprint for the next 50 years and more,” Ilouno added.
