The Head, Soludo Media Office, Mr Joe Anatune, has said the swearing-in of the Anambra State governor-elect, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, would be low-keyed.
In a statement in Awka on Wednesday, Anatune said the ceremony, which would take place at the Government House, Agu-Awka, would have few guests in attendance and devoid of unbridled celebrations that are usually associated with occasions of such nature.
It added that Soludo, after the swearing-in, would inspect a guard of honour and consequently make his inaugural address to the people of the state.
The statement also said an inter-denominational service would hold briefly before the new governor sets out to work.
The governor-elect, however, expressed gratitude to all for the outpouring of goodwill messages as well as the continuous support from well-wishers and numerous supporters within and across the globe.
