My Wife Has No Official Car As Anambra’s First Lady – Soludo


Anambra state governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has revealed that he has not taken any salary from the state since assuming office as governor two years ago, stressing that his wife does not even have an official car as the First Lady of the state.

Soludo made this revelation during the celebration of his administration’s second anniversary at the International Convention Center, Awka, the state capital on Sunday, March 17.

Soludo said: “Any governor that comes floods you with offers for borrowing and so on and so forth, but we decided for the first two years to demonstrate something, capacity to do more with less.

“And so far as has been said, for two years, despite receiving about 25 percent in real terms or in dollar terms of what was in the past, we have chosen deliberately not to borrow.

“I have been asked severally; ‘how do you do without borrowing and with the difficult circumstances?’ And my answer is that we are doing so because we are executing the most austere measure of government ever.

“As I speak to you, I am not taking any salary, I am not paid any salary by Anambra State government. Even the First Lady of Anambra doesn’t have any official car, she still drives my personal vehicles.”
