The Governor-elect of Anambra State, Charles Chukwuma Soludo has told his people not to address him as “his excellency.”
The Professor of Economics was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of his transition committee held at Golden Tulip Hotel, Agulu in Anaocha local government area on Thursday when he said this.
“I was called His Excellency a while ago, but may I plead that that Excellency tag should please wait for now.
“That is part of what we will discuss in this committee. You may just need to learn how to call me by my name, but if that isn’t good for you, then, may I request that you simply call me ‘Charlie Nwangbafor.
“If that one is so difficult for you that you must be formal in addressing me, then you can address me as Mr Governor”.
