The governor-elect of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo, on Wednesday recounted his childhood experience as he stated that it was 10 days to Christmas.

Taking to his Facebook page, Soludo shared an old throwback picture of himself as he detailed moments where he celebrated Christmas in Fegge, a town in Onitsha South Local Government Area of the state.

He titled his post ‘Christmas in Fegge!’, describing his past experiences as “unimaginable.”

He wrote, “As a teenager, the excitement that I would spend my Christmas holiday in Fegge was unimaginable. The experience enriched my worldview to the possibility that Charley Nwa Mgbafor was made for a place beyond my prevailing circumstance.

“Fegge got me dreaming. A city planned for decent humanity, with a scenery flowing from the banks of the Niger; wetting my fecund mind in the midst of material deprivation.
“A trip to Fegge is all that was required to give one a sense of urban aesthetics, one that is totally lost upon two generations of Fegge dwellers.

“Something in me leads a daily protest – ‘Bring Back Fegge!’

“It’s 10 days to Christmas, and the protest is swelling even deeper. Indeed, the future we seek is in our past.”
