The Speaker called on Ndi Anambra especially different religious bodies and political leaders to continue to pray for the peace and development of the State and generate more support for Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s administration in appreciation of the numerous achievements of the Governor in all sectors of the State economy in two years in office.
