Former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Professor Charles Soludo, has described his victory at the Anambra State governorship election as the will of God.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Wednesday declared Soludo winner of the Anambra election after winning 19 out of 21 local governments in the State.

Soludo who contested the election on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) secured 112, 229 votes, twice more than his closest rival – PDP’s Ozigbo who polled 53,807 votes.

The other two frontline contenders – Uba and Ubah scored 43,285 and 21,261 votes respectively.

Giving his acceptance speech after the announcement, the governor-elect described the feat as the will of God.

“Let me say that with utmost humility and gratitude to God, I accept the result of the 2021 Anambra governorship election, as declared by INEC.

“And this victory reflects the supreme will of the Almighty God and the overwhelming sacred mandate of the people,” Soludo said.

Soludo said his victory in the election was a result of his perseverance in the last 12 years even as he thanked the incumbent governor, Willie Obiano; the leadership of APGA, party faithful, and Anambra people for their love and support which led to his victory at the poll.
