… Soludo: Advancing Anambra State with Progressive Laws
By Christian Aburime
Opinion: Every good step taken by forward-thinking leadership is bound to strengthen and advance society and its institutions.
That is the path of progressive development, one that Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR has been taking towards building a modern, prosperous society for Ndi Anambra.
It would be recalled that last year, the Anambra State legislature passed two important bills into law, namely; Multi door court house law and Anambra State Criminal Justice Administration Law.
Soludo’s government has not only been progressive in vision and ideas, but it has also been decisive in implementing transformative reforms and actions.
These reformative actions are designed to shape Anambra into a well-governed state where the sanctity of law reigns supreme.
Today, among the myriad of Governor Soludo’s developmental interventions through the Ministry of Justice under the leadership of Prof Sylvia Chika Ifemeje, the Attorney-General of Anambra State, is the conscientious drafting and reviewing of Laws in the state.
Since the inception of this visionary administration, a flurry of laws have undergone rigorous scrutiny by the Anambra State Executive Council (ANSEC)’s Law Review Committee.
These are now being presented as Executive Bills to the esteemed Anambra State House of Assembly for passage. This monumental step aims to ensure that Anambra’s legal framework is not only relevant but also equipped to navigate the complexities of contemporary times.
Notable among these laws are the Revenue Administration (Harmonization and Consolidation) Law, 2023, Health Institutions Monitoring and Accreditation Law 2023, Secret Cultism and Similar Activities (Prohibition) Law 2023, and the Transfer and Adoption of Schools Law 2023.
In the tireless pursuit of progress, additional bills are in the pipeline, awaiting the discerning eye of the ANSEC.
These forthcoming legislations encompass critical domains, including Public Health, Communities Administration, Urban Regeneration, and Market Association, signaling a resounding commitment to a future-driven Anambra.
Indeed, each of the various laws being drafted, reviewed, and passed highlights the significance and impact of good governance on various aspects of Anambra’s society. The laws signify the noble intention of the Soludo government to touch every area of life for Ndi Anambra for good.
Also, the consultative processes, stakeholders’ involvement, and cordial working partnership between ANSEC and the State House of Assembly confirm the democratic orientation of the diverse legislative reforms and the potential benefits for the state.
In the end, it can be seen that Governor Charles Soludo’s unapologetic addiction to ushering Anambra into a new era of progress is vividly demonstrated through his administration’s extensive efforts in law-making.
By prioritizing the drafting and reviewing of laws, Anambra State is not merely adapting to change but actively shaping its destiny.
With a suite of more visionary legislations poised for implementation, Anambra State is on the precipice of a transformation that will undoubtedly echo for a long time to come, creating a legacy of prosperity, order, and resilience.
In fact, the governor’s vision for a rule-of-law-driven state is not just a promise but a tribute to the boundless possibilities that await the people of Anambra. Indeed, the solution is here!!!
