I suppose some of Soludo's 'hard earned' cash has trickled down to our Nollywood chums, right? Soon we shall be hearing about some documentary on our erstwhile former Gov'nor of CBN.

As we draw closer to the much expected Anambra State gubernatorial election, a frontline industrialist and Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) faithful from Onitsha Zone of Anambra State, Hon. Jerry Emecheta, has donated the sum of N2 million for the immediate take-off PDP's gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Chukuma Soludo's campaign programme.
He made the donation in Abuja recently at a fund raising ceremony, saying with optimism that the PDP will be victorious at the forthcoming gubernatorial election considering the quality of its leaders and followership the party commands in the state.
While making the donation, he expressed confidence in the PDP candidate that when elected, will make Anambra State better-off, saying dividends of democracy will be felt at every strata of the state.
He, therefore, called on the electorate to give the PDP candidate the needed support considering the giant strides he recorded while administering the nation’s banking sector.
On the state of the nation, he urged Nigerians to remain calm and pray for quick and speedy recovery of President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua, calling on those he described as "dissident elements" not to take any unhealthy action that is capable of derailing the nation's democracy.
He, however, commended the Vice-President Goodluck Jonathan for his loyalty, patience, courage and steadfastness in this trying period the country is passing through and prayed God continue to guide him.
