The claim that Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, is working against Obi’s quest to become Nigeria’s president in 2023 has been refuted.
The governor’s response followed claims that he had instructed APGA supporters in Anambra to work against Obi at the polls.
The claim was refuted by Soludo’s press secretary, Mr. Christian Aburime, in a statement made accessible to media in Awka on Wednesday.
The statement titled “Re: Soludo charges Anambra APGA to work against Peter Obi, dreams of Presidency after Atiku” read in part, “We note with disdain the fallacious and distasteful publication of a write-up with the above heading by faceless individual(s).
“The following should, however, be noted: that Soludo only held a private meeting with APGA members.
“At no time during the meeting was Peter Obi, a point of discourse.
“We, therefore, urge Ndi-Anambra and members of the public to completely ignore and disregard the publication in its entirety.”
