There was heavy security presence at the venue, hours before the event as guests began to arrive for the programme.
Soludo took the oath of office alongside his deputy, Dr. Onyeka Ibezim at the Government House.
The ceremony was attended by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Oye and wife; Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Uchenna Okafor and wife; Sen. Victor Umeh and wife; Bianca Ojukwu, clergymen, traditional rulers, among others.
The newly sworn-in governor told the people of Anambra State that he would deliver on his campaign promises.
He promised to make the state an economic hub and called on indigenes of Anambra to join hands with him to actualise his mandate.
