Anambra State Governor, Prof Charles Soludo

Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo has described Anambra State as the gas capital of Nigeria.

He stated this while inaugurating the Anambra State Oil and Gas Development Committee at the Government House in Awka.

While pointing out that Anambra has joined other States as an oil and gas producing State, Governor Soludo stressed the necessity of having a formal Committee because, according to him, ‘to exploit oil and gas, one has to pass through the land.’

Speaking further, Governor Soludo said, “land in Anambra is a very scarce commodity, as such, special care should be given, to ensure that the right things are done.”

“With the hostile environment we have, our own land is prone to erosion, flooding and degradation.

“Our landmass is shrinking. Anambra is the headquarters of gully erosion in the country for the remaining part of our land to be damaged by exploitation of land and mass.

“I am trying to situate the importance of this committee. Anambra is unique in the sense that we have no offshore. Everything is onshore, on the land people use for farming,” Governor Soludo said.
